Father's Day

Simply put -
I chose wisely.

I love this husband o' mine. He is the most amazing husband and fantastic father. We love him more than words can express.

Grandpa Donut came over for Father's Day dinner. Luke, JoAnna, & Ava came too. It was good just to be together, hanging out.

My Dad & Me

Father's Day 2008

We spent some time at the cemetery that evening. Kevin's Dad loves roses. It's sad I never got to meet him or that the kids don't get to play around with him. Someday.

Kevin tells me stories about his Dad and what a great man he was. I know he is. I can see that greatness in his son.

We also went over to my Uncle's grave. That was hard. The pain is still there. I hugged my Dad even tighter.

This Father's Day I savored every moment with my family. And I made sure not to take it for granted. To all the Fathers in my life - Thank You. I Love You.

That was a really beautiful post. I wish that I could have gotten to know Grandpa Sanders as well. I've always know the good man that he was/is.

Catherine, what a special post! We are blessed with great men in our lives!

I hope your 4th of July is as wonderful as your Father's Day was. In the meantime, I'm going to be enjoying summer vicariously through your last post... :)
