Happy Father's Day!

Well, I am grateful to have the opportunity today to honor Fathers, especially Jeff... the father of my children. I know that may sound a bit corny but it is true. I thought I could never fall in love with him more, but when he first held Amy in his arms and I saw how much he loved her, I fell in love with him all over. That happened with each child and even with each grandchild so far. Yes, he has exceeded all the dreams I had for my kids and grand kids their father and grandfather. They will go far in life because of his love!

Since my journey through Cancer twice, I have often asked myself this question. HOW WILL MY KIDS SURVIVE IN LIFE, WITHOUT A MOM? I was always grateful for the peaceful answer that came immediately into my mind and heart... THEY WOULD BE FINE, BECAUSE THEY HAVE SUCH AN INCREDIBLE FATHER! HE IS THEIR PROTECTOR, A RIGHTEOUS EXAMPLE FOR THEM AND THEIR BEST FRIEND. Having never had that type of a Father in his life, he beat the odds, and generations will be blessed because of his choices and his example.

Happy Father's Day Jeff!    I love you!
