Happy Father's Day

to all you daddies out there! I hope your day is filled with love and joy. Just remember that old saying that goes something like, "Any guy can be a father, but it takes a special man to be a daddy."

Happy Father's Day to my dad. He was the first love of my life and I've measured all the men I've ever known by his example. No, he wasn't, and he isn't, perfect, but no one is. But he has been the perfect daddy. He's always supported my efforts and been there when I've needed him. His love is a quiet kind that isn't throw about with abandon, but you still know it's there. And he truly is my friend as well as my father.

Happy Father's Day to my Mister. He is a lot like my dad. (That old thing about marrying someone like your parent is true for me.) My Mister is the hook, line, and sinker that caught me when I was ready to be caught. He's a great daddy to our three little ones (the Hoe-lings). I know he loves me despite my getting older, fatter, grayer, and grumpier because I've become all of that from having his children. He appreciates how difficult is was for me to bring those beautiful babies into the world. I love him for loving me. I love him for loving our children. I love him for making me a mother.

Happy Daddy's Day, David! I love you.
