Happy Father's Day to the best husband and Da!!
I don't know how Jake and I ended up with such a blessed life. Why God has given us soon to be 3 wonderful children. We have a life that is filled with smiles and laughter. And, I could not have asked for a better help mate and father for my precious children than Jake. What kind of man asks for a dryer and hot water heater for Father's Day? The best kind. The kind that take his little ones on long bike rides even though it is a much easier ride by himself. The kind that comes home and senses Mama needs a break from the little ones and gladly takes both of them out for the afternoon. The kind that rushes home from work and whose children rush to the door screaming when they seem him. The kind that calls throughout the day to tell us all how much he loves us and wishes he were home with us all of the time. The kind that looks for hobbies that includes all of us. Hobbies that are not a way to get away , but a way to bring us all together. The kind who always thinks of the children and I first and himself second. The kind of father that is always plugged in to his family. The kind who is a willing play partner in the floor with animals and trains(and even a baby doll every once in a while). The kind that oohs and ahhs over his baby girl in a new outfit. The kind that notices every little thing that his little boy accomplishes. And, the kind that makes me feel loved and treasured. That is the kind of husband/father that asks for a new dryer and water heater for Father's Day. I will give him an actual gift because I find such joy in seeing joy on his face. If the children and I can give him just a bit of joy that he gives us everyday, it will be a great day. We love you, Jake/Da!! Happy Father's Day!!
