Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the special dads in my life.

My dad was an extraordinary man, who I miss everyday.
The way a new dad looks at his child is so very special.

A look that is filled with awe and wonder...

...and bliss and love.
Lots of love.

Then your kids grow up and the fun part of being a dad begins... at the park... a special first race...
...chillin' on a bench...
...or going to the ocean for the first time.

Watching the man you love be a good dad is something very special...especially when so many roadblocks are put in his way.  He never gives up and loves them with his whole heart.  It makes me love him so much more.

What is even better is good dads make good grandpas.

Then there are those extra special men who are grandfathers and dads by choice...not by blood.

And even though they are not biologically connected, they love and care just the same.

I love all the fathers in my life.  Thank you for being the kind of dads you are.

Just one piece of advice...
...for goodness sake...
...leave the hair brushing to us.
