And this last year — I have seen that father’s love come through more than I ever have. In our hardest season of losing our second baby, he has been such a source of strength for me as we have walked through this season of grief together. Through it all, he has continued to love our son and me fiercely, and I truly would have not made it through the last 10 1/2 months without all he has done to keep us moving forward.
Today, I’m thankful for all the dads in my life. For my best friend, my husband, the most amazing daddy to ALL of our babies. For my own dad, who has taught me many things over the years, who has loved me through my hardest seasons, who has modeled hard work as well as generosity in all he does. And for my father-in-law, whose quiet presence and love for our little family and willingness to always lend a hand I treasure beyond words.
Happy Father’s Day to all the superhero dads out there rocking this fatherhood thing — here’s to another wonderful year on this wild ride of parenthood!
