Any man can be a father, but it takes a special kind of man to be a dad.
It takes a special heart to be a daddy. It takes patience, understanding, presence, strength, support, acceptance and most of all an active love.
Daddy is an earned name. It is called in times of joy, in times of pain and in times of sorrow. It is called when a defender, cheerleader or teacher is needed.
Dads are a daughter’s first love and a son’s first hero.
The first time I can remember knowing that I loved Michael, was the first time I watched him with his innocently beautiful daughter and beyond adorable son. My heart melted and never recovered. He is so much more than a father. He is a dad.
Happy Father’s day to this wonderful man of mine – your children are beyond lucky to call you their daddy and I can’t wait to witness your relationships as they grow.
