Father's Day Shout Out

All of what I wanted to say to Brian about the wonder that is his fathering, I said to him privately [cuz that's how he rolls!]. But I will publicly say that it's miraculous how God so brilliantly chose Judah and Addise to be our children. They fit supernaturally into our hearts, personality, strengths, brokenness, and home.

I knew that Brian would be an amazing father someday, and he is. He exceeds my expectations and I'm speechless at how he's learning to parent by also being parented by our God. He's a remarkable man, and I could not be more in love with this man.

Happy Father's Day, baby!
On another note, I am equally grateful for my Daddy. He is the older, boy version of me. I learned how to change a tire, change my oil, swear, burp, and stand on my own two feet in a man's world [his fatherly goal raising his only daughter] from him. But I also learned obedience to Jesus, sense of humor despite circumstances, hard work, passion, commitment to family, and risk. It's because of having a great father [and mother!] that I could recognize the making of a good father in Brian 13+ years ago. Happy Father's Day, Pops. Love you.
