Two Fathers

Happy Father's Day to my own dad and to my wonderful husband.

My dad did a pretty good job raising his kids. I mean, my brother turned out okay so he was at least batting .500, right? And now he's a darn good grandpa. Garrett looks so little in that picture and I can remember that moment like it was yesterday. He was laughing so hysterically, as is evidenced in the shot, that I could barely hold the camera still I was laughing so hard. Still, as little as he looks, it certainly isn't as little as this guy...

Thanks, Dad, for being such a great father and grandfather.

Then there's this guy. The one I love. The one I want for life. Thanks, Troy, for being such a good dad to both of our boys.

Last Father's Day was a little rough, not knowing if we'd be a family of four the next time we celebrated or if we'd be back to a family of two. I have this picture framed in our house and when I'd look at it back before we'd finalized, my heart ached. I'm so very glad that Troy gets to be the daddy to both of these kids for the foreseeable future.

So to the dads in my life: Thank you for being godly examples. I love you both so much!
