Being Father's Day, I do have to stop and give a shout out to the Dads in my life. Starting of course with my husband, who I loved deeply and passionately before he became a father, but then found I loved him so much more when I saw him parent our boys.
To my own Dad, who taught me so much about how I should be treated by men, so that when Michael came along, I knew he was the man for me.
To my Father-in-law, who is the bright and shining example of what a husband and father should look like, and raised a son like Michael.
How lucky my own sons are, to have so many great fatherly examples to learn from!
Happy Father's Day to all you Dads, current and future, and to the men who may not be dads but still influence the young people around you. Thank you! Enjoy your day!
