Dad Day

“The older I get, the smarter my father seems to get.” ― Tim Russert

Isn't it the truth??

I hope every father in the world feels honored and loved on this day and all the days to come. The role of a father is invaluable to a child. They provide a source of strength, security, and protection, among many other things.

As I have gotten a little older, I have thought about my own upbringing, and the man I am honored to call my Dad. My dad is my hero. He has so many traits and qualities I hope to emulate in my own life. He has taught me so much -- by both his words and his example. 

I miss my Dad like crazy. I haven't seen him since CHRISTMAS, and we have yet another month till we get to spend a few days together. It's really hard being apart for so long, but in a way I feel we have gotten closer. 

On the same vein, I feel so blessed to have married into a family with yet another amazing example of a father. I have learned so much in the last year or so of our marriage as I have watched and observed my father-in-law in his day-to-day actions. He puts pride in everything he does... whether it be his job, house, or his family. Thank you, Randal, for supporting Russell and I in everything we do!

We really are so blessed to have two amazing men to honor on this Father's Day. Thank you for everything you do for us. We love you!

Oh. . . such kind and sweet words. Your Dad just walked in from Church when I was reading this and he is humbled and touched! We are so very proud of all of you guys. . . One of my favorite quotes lately is this: "In terms of your happiness, in terms of the matters that make you proud or sad, nothing--I repeat, nothing--will have so profound an effect on you as the way your children turn out." -- Pres. Hinckley. WE ARE SO BLESSED!
