Happy Father's Day

Today is a day set aside to let the men in our lives know how very important that they are to us. 

When look at my dad, I think about how his fatherhood is different from most. You see, when he decided to become my father, he didn't have nine months to let it sink in and get used to the idea. He and my mom were literally given the option of taking me home with them immediately or not at all. And if you've ever spent any time getting to know my parents, you'll know that they stepped up and overnight became parents, no hesitation.

I always marvel at how they just did it. Just said yes and became my grace. They completely changed their lives and sacrificed their plans for me. 

So when I think about my dad, I look at him and see a father that chose me. He loves me, still would make any sacrifice necessary for me.. He is full of wisdom and an honorable man. He gives without expecting anything in return and loves unconditionally. He is a true example of my Heavenly Father's love and grace.

Thank you, Daddy. Happy Father's Day.
