Blessed to Have This Man.
I’ve always said that it takes a great and special kind of man to father a child. It is easy to make a child but, it’s a journey and hard work to raise them.
Today and everyday, I honor the love of my life. The man who has been there through the sleepless nights, who’s changed diapers, scared away the monsters, and cheered at the sidelines for ballet and soccer and who’s been the greatest pillar of support to his three ladies.
I can honestly say that I am a VERY blessed and lucky woman to call Darasak my partner. That is exactly what we are, partners. He’s been there to pick me up whenever I was down, to support me in every single journey I ventured on and he helps me on the daily to keep our household afloat. He is my inspiration to always do better, to push that much harder and the strength that I need to make it through rough days.
I could NOT do it without him.
If it’s making us dinner, helping me with laundry or just providing the right words at the right times–you name it…
He’s super dad.
A little girl needs her daddy to love her with manly charm,
To soothe her when she’s hurt and keep her safe from harm.
A girl needs her dad to show her a man who’s good.
To help her make the right choices, as only a father could.
I’m so proud of him, he’s a hard worker, a dutiful, affectionate father and husband.
So, Darasak– Happy Father’s Day my love, you deserve the world and know that every time you reach for the stars, I’m right there with you. I love you more and more each day and when I see you with our girls, I love you in so many more different ways.
You are amazing and the best man I’ve ever known besides my own dad!
Thank-you for being there for both our girls, to help them grow, to teach them new things and for all the patience that you have with all of us.
Most especially, thank-you for being my best friend and for allowing me to bear the best titles I could ever have, mother and wife.
We all love you so much!
To my own father, who has ALWAYS been there for me without fail, through the hard times and through the best times. I love him more than words can ever express. I’m sorry for causing him trouble because I know I have, I thank him for loving me despite it. I’m blessed to have him and my mom and my girls are blessed to have such doting and devoted grandparents. Though my mother doesn’t celebrate, today is her birthday as well, I’m blessed to have another year with her too!
To all the fathers out there, who take care of their children and stand behind the title, I wish you the happiest of all days. A day filled with love and happiness and hopefully a little relaxation and pampering too. You deserve it, not only today–but, everyday! For all the mothers out there who bear both titles and take care of their children alone, I commend you and I wish you a very happy day today too!
Make sure to appreciate every moment you have with your family, appreciate every single day.
Happy Father’s Day!
