*Special Fathers*

When it comes to fathers, I have been most blessed in that department. 

Not only do I have a wonderful Daddy myself, I have a hubby that is a wonderful Daddy to our boys. 

And because of great examples, I have a son who is now a wonderful Daddy, as well. 

And I can't leave out my precious father-in-law, the late Jim Wrinn.  He always called me his daughter-in-love.  Oh how I miss him!

My Daddy has always been there, setting a great example of a hardworking, honest, caring man. 

He has always been there for me, and my family, through thick and then...always giving unconditionally!

He has been through so much, especially within the last year when he suffered a stroke, began therapy, lost his precious beautiful mother, moving in with my family and me...then moving to live with my sister and her husband, and then moving back with them to live in the house where we grew up. 

He is a man of honor, courage, and love.  I just hope he knows how much I admire and love him!  Just as I told him at the hospital right after his stroke, when he was determined to work hard to overcome it, he is my HERO!

My sweet husband learned about being a Daddy from having such a wonderful one himself. 

He has always been such a hardworker and good provider for his family...and always there to give the boys a hug, a pat on the back, or an "atta boy!" 

He was so proud and patient when each son wanted to learn to play guitar,  and they have played music for many different venues together over the years.

 A Daddy was is always there to help the boys in whatever is going on in their lives at the time...always trying to find the good in things.  A Christian man who seeks the Lord's will for his life.

Then just a few years ago, due to the economy, he lost his job.  That is hard for a man when they aren't able to provide for their family.  However, after seeking God's will and lots of encouragement, he decided to go back to school, at the age of 50.  He has worked so hard, and was accepted into the Radiology program at the college of his pick.  He has never faltered in his belief in hardwork.  He has thrown himself into his schooling, has soaked it up like a sponge, and has had several special recognitions.  He is in his last year, and will be back to providing for his family and enjoying his new career, no doubt! 

He is already a great "Pa" to our first grandbaby!  Oh, how I love this man!

And it our youngest son, who recently married the love of his life, who has a baby girl, has become an amazing Daddy in such a short time.  To read about their story, you can go here to a recent post that I shared about them. 

Oh how this young man adores his little girl which is returned by a little one that loves this man that has always been the only Daddy she has known.

He's been there from the very beginning! 

He is a Daddy that seeks God's will for his life, takes his family to church, prays with them, and helps teach his little one about Jesus.

And if she should decide she wants to learn to play guitar, I have no doubt that he will do so with such love and patience with his little girl!

 I am so proud of my son, and know that he will always be there for his daughter and other children they may have in the future.

Thank you to all these special fathers and grandfathers who aren't just "fathers" but are daddies who love their children and who have their children's love in return!

Happy Father's Day to all the daddies out there!
Father's Day Blessings,
