Happy Father's Day

What can I say about you, sweetie? In the 7+ years we have known each other, you never cease to amaze me....and annoy me...ha,ha...JUST KIDDING :) As far as being a father goes, I have the upmost respect and admiration for you because not only are you a great daddy to Mikey, but you are an exceptional dad to Elijah. From the beginning, you never hesitated, second guessed or backed away from entering a relationship with someone who already had a son. You loved me, and from the loved him. You stepped in and stepped up when his own father wasn't around. You have never treated him like he wasn't your own and you do as much for him...if not you do for Mikey. In my opinion, you EARNED the right to be called his father long before you and I were ever married. We have had our ups and downs in our relationship, but in the past few years, I have seen you grown... as a man of God, as a father and as a husband. I see that our boys look to you as an example of what it is to be a good man and I am proud that you are making more responsible choices because of this. You are a hardworker and a good provider for our family and we appreciate all that you do for us. Even though I get frustrated and miss you because of all the time you spend at work away from us, I know that if given the choice, you would be here with us all the time. I know that you do it for us. You make a huge effort to make the most of the time we do have together by taking us to do things as a family or even when we just spend time at home doing what you love best: bbqing and hanging out with the kids at home. Those are the times that I know you love best and so do we :) Thank you, baby, for all that you do. I hope that today and every day, you know just how much we admire, respect and appreciate you. I love you so very much and I don't know what we would do without you. Happy Father's Day, Shmoopy Loopy....I hope you have an awesome day :)
