Today is Father’s Day. I hope you made your Dad breakfast in bed! I’d like to say a bit about my Dad, my Husband, and all those men out there who are wonderful Dads.
Thanks, Daddy! Thanks for building a maze for my hamsters, just because I wanted one. Thanks for showing me that love is an action word. Words are cheap. It’s what you DO for those you love that matters. Thanks for picking all the tripe out of my menudo AND fishing the ground meat out of my spaghetti sauce. Thanks for always cutting the meat on my plate. I still let you do that for years after I could do it on my own because it made me feel special. Thanks for working so hard to provide a roof over our heads.
And for my special Hubby....Thanks for being THE example of love that my Dad laid down. It was totally worth the wait. Thank your for being a father figure to my children. They know they can depend on you. Thanks for being strong enough to withstand the hurricane that is Kelly and not hold it against me. And, last but not least, THANK YOU for not letting my love of animals (bunnies, in particular) wreck your idea of what a home is all about. You are the best!
