Tears and Joy

First the tears… This happens to be the second Father’s Day for me without my dad. It makes me sad because I don’t have a dad here on earth to wish a happy Father’s Day. I know he is now without pain and he’s not suffering and that makes me happy, but I would love to be able to hear his voice one more time and tell him that I love him. I have tons of memories of my dad. The fondest ones were of us fishing together. I was always the one to catch the first fish and it was usually the biggest one. He would brag on me so much because I was the only girl with TONS of boy cousins. As I drove home today from church…I heard one of the songs that we played at my dad’s funeral. It’s called Cadillac Kind. My daddy never was the Cadillac Kind for sure. He was a very simple man…it didn’t take much to please him at all. It’s exciting to know that now he’s with his Father in heaven and he has everything he needs and desires. I love you daddy!

My dad with his grandkids...old pic...but I like it b/c all grandkids are in it

Now for the joy! I have an amazing husband and my children have an amazing dad. I’m so glad that I have a man that loves his family. Travis always puts me and the kids first. He always thinks of us and never himself. He’s a dad that hates to miss anything that our children do. He’s a dad that will spend his last dollar so that his children can have what they want and most importantly what they need. When our kids hurt….he hurts too. I’m very thankful for all he’s done and how hard he has worked to take care of us. Happy Father’s Day, Travis. You are the best!

Here are a couple of "old" pics and a few new ones.

We gave Travis a fishtank for Father's Day...He's wanted one for a long time. Now lets see who keeps it clean:o)

And finally I would like to say how happy I am to have my Father in heaven. I can’t imagine my life without HIM. He’s my rock…He takes care of me….and without a doubt He’s always there for me. Thank you heavenly Father for who I am, for the life you’ve given me and for being my savior!
