Seven for Sunday: 15th edition {Fathers’ Day Tribute}

-1-
June 12th was a special day at our house.  It marked 6 years from when sweet James passed away.  Baby James and I took lunch to Daddy at work, just so we could all be together, then we went to the grave after JW got home.

I am spending a lot of time with my brother Jake lately.  I love him so much and am so grateful we’ve had an opportunity to bond the way we have the past few weeks.  Words cannot describe how happy we are to have him home!!

John sent me an email from work the other day.  Evidently he had just pranked a co-worker.  The email topic was “Mwa Ha Ha Ha….” and it read: “My co-workers have been bamboozled!  Now I sit back and wait for the trap to spring!”
I love my husband’s innocent sense of humor.

Grandpa Bill, JW’s maternal grandfather.  I never knew him but he has influenced me so much through his wife,  children, and grandchildren, who are all such incredible examples in my life.

And of course a special little tribute space to the father I’m most grateful for:

Dear John:
Never was there a more qualified man to be a good father.  From the examples of fathers in your life to your own dedication to The Father, you have such unique recourses to fuel your own passion to parent, and I am so honored to be by your side through this sacred adventure.  Thank you for all you are and for all you give.  We love you so much!!

    What a sweet father’s day tribute. Love it! Isn’t amazing how much men impact our lives even as women forge ahead towards equality. We still need them you know?
