Today, June 15th, is Father's Day. Let me first say that I am so thankful in two regards: 1) to have such a great father myself and 2)to have three children who have their own great father. I just got off the phone with my dad and, after a 30 minute talk he said, "I think I am all talked out!" (He is not much for small talk.) I am thankful that I was the only daughter; being a "daddy's girl" is a very special position that I will never outgrow. I see Brooke that same way with her daddy.
Today was also our 12th anniversary. It was more work than it should have been to have Wesley take a picture of the two of us, but I did get it done!
When I was a young teen, many friends wrote lists of "things they were looking for in a husband." I never actually wrote such a list, but I did have a mental list. It is interesting to see how God had a much better and very different list. I wanted a guy who could sing beautifully and who was very sensitive. Gary is neither of these. (It didn't sound so gay back in the 1980's.) I did get tall, dark, and handsome, but more importantly God gave me patient and persevering! I love him like crazy; he can't sing, but I will keep him :)
