An example of strong human character.
An example of wisdom
An example of unconditional love.
A man with a heart that is so generious.
A man who made a choice for me.
A man who chooses to love me and be my Father.
To be a father is a choice.
Yes human actions can create a child.
To be a dad and a father, to be there for these new beings is a man's choice.
Those that chose their own children are a blessing and what strength to be there for their very own blood and children.
Giving and reciving love and the everyday life, nothing could be more beautiful!
My father chose years ago, (my kid sister and I not being his blood)...to be our father.
To be a father to your own blood or to make choice of some other kind...
This is a daily conscious choice.
For those who take the selfless road for their own children, and for those that take the selfless road of saying "YES!" opening their heart wider and taking on other children...
These men that are there in the good and bad times.
Take on the responsibility in all ways to be their for their child and children...
Then there is a man I have recently met, Michael, and has the same role I do...the sole parent who is the father and the mother 99.66666% of the time...wow!
These men are the "Super Dads".
He amazes me daily with his heart.
The man that stood next to my mother as we witnessed, and said "I do".
A man with 4 beautiful, talented, successful children of his own...and we all blended.
These are my siblings all of them...and this is MY FATHER too!!!
A man that now says he has 6 children. :) And enjoys the bragging rights of us all.
The man that shares the example of a best friend and an amazing husband to my mother.
A man that can hold me accountable with love, ministering, teaching...
The man I call "Dad" without hesitation.
He is there when my life is full of thorns and I need to talk.
He is there to say "OH NO!"
And that he loves me no matter what.
He lets me cry and shares his wisdom.
He is honest and this helps me blossom.
He is there for the great times and is the first to say "YES!!!"
He is there always.
My father is Maxx's grandfather...Pa Pa!
He is the strongest example of a man, son, husband, father that Maxx has.
For that I am so thankful.
They have this bond since Maxx's birth, that is more than beautiful.
Everyman, no matter what, when or where is an example to our sons.
Maxx is also blessed by some beautiful men in his life that are his friends' father's.
What they do with him and make the choice to step up to give him a pat on the back and a high-5.
I am forever grateful for them.
He also has his father that does take a few hours a week to be there...it is not ideal, but Maxx knows his father, and there are lessons, big life lessons here.
I am so thankful for these men in his life.
Excitement to see him bloom as he takes in all of these examples and to see the big choices of love he makes.
Thank you Dad for being you, my father and Maxx's Pa Pa!
We love you!
For all those other Papa Bears out there that chose every day to step up and make that huge selfless loving choice!
This is your day of appreciation!!!
Happy Father's Day!
