Well...... yesterday I earned a few more gray hairs by turning one year older. I hate turning older and I don't really care for gray hair. There was, however, one thing that made the old go away for a while. Nothing fancy or spectacular. No Rolex or Seiko Kinetic watch.... which I could take or leave, but I did get one thing that left me speechless. It started like this. To: Dad
My kids brought me a cake and a card after lunch on Sunday. The homemade cards from construction paper and magic markers. These cards were extraordinary, to me! Nathan made a top ten reasons I love dad list. Most of it revolved around wrestling, tickling, and light sabers. Bailey did a sweet card and put all the kids fingerprints, labeling each finger, and personally signed by each kid. Taylor wrote me a special note and a poem about why I'm the best dad in world.
Holy cow..... it doesn't get any better than that! I love my wife with all my heart, and I love my kids with every drop of life in me! I just pray I get to have lots more tickle sessions, laughs, walks, games, and talks with my kids and wife. God has blessed me far more than I deserve! Thank you Jesus!
