Dad Stuff

This is for the two Dads in my life...

First, there is the Dad who married my mom....

And with her help made - me (and a couple of other swell kids)

Thank you for loving Mom so well, and with her creating a home and family that nurtured, protected, encouraged, challenged, supported...taught us how to be and who to be.

Thank you for teaching my girlies from a young age that to give is better than to receive.  And for loving them like only a devoted grandfather can.

Thank you for all the listening you have done over the years,  for all the times that you gave us your much needed advice...and for being patient and being there for us...for 'peeling back those layers' and letting us blossom.

I appreciate the careful consideration that you give to all matters in your life...and I LOVE  the wonderful hugs that you are always happy to dole out.

I am proud and honoured to say that you are my dad....and I am your daughter.

Now, the other Dad in my life

The one that married me....

The one that became a Dad while making me a Mom....

First with our Madison...

and once more with our Lane.

Thank you for being the kind of Dad that loves to spend time with his girlies -  just hanging out...

Going on a trip...

Even getting all dressed up and painting the town...purple... of course!

Maybe just for today I will give in and say...yes you are our King...our one and only... our man of the house....the Grand Poopaw (is that how you spell that?)

Thank you for making me feel special and beautiful...even after all these many years.

Thank you for all that you do for our family...for being there when we need you, for having our best interests at heart...but most of all for loving us unconditionally and with the fierceness and commitment of a true King.

With all my love to the two Dads in my life.....Elizabeth Anne

Happy Father's Day to all the deserving Dads out there!
