I just want to wish all the wonderful father's out there a happy Father's Day :)
Here are the men in my life that I am thankful for.
My husband, Wayne.
It must be a challenge for him to be surrounded by all the women in this house, but I have to give him credit, he sure fits in here ;)
He is a wonderful father, provider and love of my life.
He really is a big kid at heart. He makes me laugh every day.
He loves his girls and would do anything for them.
He has been through everything with me and nothing phases this man.
Love you Wayne.
My Dad, Tom.
He may not have been in my daily life growing up as distance was an issue.
But I always knew I was loved by him and when ever I visited, I felt like Daddy's little girl.
We have so much in common. We both are creative and resourceful.
We have many of the same favourites in what we eat.
I love to listen to his stories of the past.
Love you dad.
My dad, James
Even though society called you my step-dad, you were my dad, and I your daughter.
I felt safe with you in my life. You made me feel like no one could ever hurt me, and if they did, they would have you to deal with...which in itself was frightening enough ;)
We had so much to talk about. We enjoyed so many of the same books, movies and television shows and could talk about them for hours.
You taught me many lessons in life, that I have installed in my girls.
You were proud of me and always made sure I knew that.
I enjoyed hearing about your travels around the world and miss you everyday.
Love you dad.
My Father In Law, Rainer.
You accepted me as family since day one.
When I was living on my own, you would welcome me for supper and always wanted to know if I made 100 lbs yet, lol.
I enjoy seeing you every weekend at our cottages and enjoy sharing our week with each other.
I love that every year you try to find me the best blue berry patch to pick at.
No matter what I think up to try to do at the cottage, you are willing to help me out. When you shake your head at what I plan to do with my next found object, you are one of the first, to tell me how great it looks.
Love you Ray
So Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there, Whether you have children of
your own, or had a part in raising a child. I hope you all had a great
