The Very Manly Man
I know I am a day late, but yesterday we focused on him. He deserves it. Everyday he gets up at 4:00 am to go off into the world to support his family. He does this because he loves us, not because it is fun to lift sheetrock all day starting at 4:00am. Just in case you were confused. This weekend, like every Father's Day weekend, is a reminder of how blessed I am. Not many men would marry a woman with four children on June 16th seven years ago, and instantly become a father of five daughters. He also has a daughter. But he did, and on that day he made a commitment to each and everyone of us to be here with us until death do us part. That is a good thing, but the fact that he actually does it every day, that is a great big thing. An amazingly manly thing. I have no doubt in my mind that he is the manliest man I know. He is full of love, respect, honesty, dedication, wittiness, and a love for God that amazes me. Not only that but he is one fine specimen of a man! And of course you can't forget the two little surprises either. He says that he would have never in his wildest dreams thought he would be the father of seven children, but he is and he does a fine job. So Happy Anniversary and Happy Father's Day, Steven. We love you, and I, most of all, am thankful that God brought you into our lives!
