Family…. That word can muster a mix of emotions. Some good, some… not so good. That’s ok. Family are those that you love and they love you. We don’t always agree, but it’s nice to know that they are always there.
I want to take this moment to publicly appreciate my family. My wife and kids are amazing. I’m so proud of each of them. This year I will have the pleasure of watching my oldest daughter deliver into this world her first child. I’ve already decided that this baby boy will learn to call me “Poppy”. Sure “Grandpa” is a fine title, but I claim “Poppy”. My daughter will be a great mommy and son-n-law will be a fantastic daddy. I love you guys.
All my kids are wonderfully created. I thank God for the opportunity to be there for them. I see each of them growing up with different gifts and talents. I pray that they grow to learn how blessed they are. I love you guys.
I feel especially emotional when I think of the woman that God blessed me with. Honey, you are beautiful, kind and smart. You teach me so much! God has given you a fantastic ability to see the needs of others. You care about people and animals. Not only do you care, but you have a unique gift to know how to help. I don’t always understand how and why you do things, but I always appreciate your heart in doing them. I love you Honey!
Just for fun, I thought I’d throw in an image of my wife’s dog J.D.. He gets so sad when she is away. I understand how he feels. 🙂
