I think one of the most telling things about a relationship between a child and their father is simply, are you glad when he comes home?
We have this primary song the kids sing. Here are my daughters singing it for their Daddy.
I am so grateful that I found a man who plays with his daughters. I am so grateful that he is silly with them. I am so grateful that he is patient, and loving and it shows. He works hard doing what is needed, for those he loves.
I am so grateful for my hunny bunny. Before choosing a spouse I knew I wanted a man my daughters wouldn't dread, or fear, but one they would be thrilled to have at home.
I believe there is no greater, no truer compliment than when your family simply can't wait until you are home.When my man comes home, all three of us might happen to start talking at once. The girls fight to run to him first. They love how he sweeps them up into his arms for a twirling, giggling hug.
Today, this post is late in the day because we have been trying to create a clean, peaceful home for our hard-working Daddy to return home to.
