It's your day, dad!

My Honey
Everyone told me what a great man you are, your sisters told me what a great dad you are, and I believed them of course, but it wasn't until I'd had the chance to watch your heart at work that I realized you are a wonderful, kind hearted, giving, untiring dad who rarely seeks his own needs out and does everything in his power to put his children first.

I watched you put our newborn puppies to Poca's breast when she was too afraid to care for them and my heart swelled with love at your tenderness. It was a small gesture, but it showed me your capacity to love. You do that with our children everyday. You try to show them how to conduct themselves, give them tools for life, shower them with affection and love and it makes me love you even more, if that's possible. Thank you Wayne, for loving our children, all of them and for changing my world.

I have to admit, I never thought there would be a man who could compare to my father. I watched my dad love all his children and his brother's and sister's children unconditionally. Until you, I never thought any other man could occupy such a big part of my heart. Now, I know why my father loves you so much. Not just because I do, but because he knows we're all in good, strong, faithful, loving hands.

My dad
He didn't tell me how to live;
he lived, and let me watch him do it.

Daddy, you are my best friend. I don't know why we went through everything we did, so much heart ache, so many adjustments, it seemed that life was determined to throw it's curve balls at us, but one thing remained solid, I had you and you had me. And, everyday growing up, I knew I could do anything I put my mind to because whether or not anyone believed in me, you were always in my corner. When I made poor choices you did not condemn me. When I made leaps in life, you always cheered me on. I love you. I know I tell you all the time, but I love you. I hope that I have brought you as much joy as you have given me. Happy father's day!

Nen, I think you speak too highly of me. I am just a man, a simple man who loves his wife, loves his children and loves to around family.
