To my father and husband

To my father on Father's Day....

Thank you for picking me up all the times I have fallen, kissing scrapped knees and wiping off dirt. Telling me that it will be okay and eventually the pain will end. Knowing that there will be additional pains throughout my life, you have stood beside me, picking me up, and telling me that eventually the pain will end.

Thank you for showing me right from wrong and giving me the strong values that I am showing my children each day. Though, sometimes I did not appreciate them at the time, I do now and know how important each one is.

Thank you for spending the endless nights reading me books, watching T.V. with me, playing games, the dances, and watching endless softball games. These times while short lived will forever be held close in my heart.

Thank you for the unconditional love you have shown to me every single day, not ever missing a chance or a moment to say, "I love you" or give a hug. I have known that no matter how big the mess I made, you would always still love me. (maybe not always be happy, but love me nonetheless)

Thank you for giving me the courage to try new things and be independent, yet knowing I can always call if I need help or feel like I am falling. You are able to put things in perspective and show that there are other options.

You have truly made me who I am today, and I hope that I can give just a small piece of that to my kids, I am very blessed!!

To my Husband on Father's Day....

Thank you for being you. You have the ability to make me laugh, even when I feel like crying. You know when something needs to be said, and when I just need you to be quiet and sit beside me.

Thank you for being my rock and my support. Life is not always easy, but with you by my side, I feel like I can do anything.

Thank you for giving your girls to me. This has been a big blessing and I am blessed to know each of them. They are so smart and loving and I know that this is from how you have raised and supported them throughout their lives.

Thank you for loving my children as if they were yours. You show them unconditional love and support just like your own. It can be a very difficult situation to bring 2families together but you have become their step-father with such grace.

I am thankful for each day spent with you and look forward to spending the rest of our days together. Thank you and Happy Father's Day!!
