As I sit here on my comfortable couch writing, they are still "out there" for the rest of the day. But it gives me time to reflect on the many sacrifices my husband has made over the years for our seven children. The support he has given as they've participated in band, choir and piano performances, tennis matches, football and soccer games, track and cross-country events, scouting activities and young women events and camps.
I could not have asked for a better father for my children. As a priesthood leader in our home, he teaches us about the gospel with regular family scripture study, family home evening and prayer. And though sometimes we get a few discourses, I love him for it.
When our two grandchildren were born, he was excited to be Grandpa. He has a gift for quieting fussy babies and always wants to visit our grand kids. He gets a bit jealous if I get the chance without him.
His arms are always waiting to hold handsome Andrew,
and sweet Elena.
For almost 28 years, he has risen each day to go to work to provide for us. He is the unsung hero in our home.
As you each celebrate father's day, I hope you will look back at the perfections of your own husband or father, and overlook the imperfections. We are so fortunate. Happy Father's Day!
