Daddy's Day

People always say they have the best daddy in the world, but I know I have got them beat.  And so does Aubrey. I don't always make all the right choices for Bre, but I sure did make the best choice in who her daddy would be. NO one can compare to Christian. He is an amazing husband, but an even better daddy. It just comes natural to him, and he does it with ease.
He knows what Aubrey is saying and what she wants even when she makes no sense. He plays with her constantly and will do anything to make sure she is having fun. He is attentive and spends quality time with her. He tells her she's beautiful and so very special. He sings songs to her and reads her book after book. He rocks her to sleep and gives kisses to her bow bows.
 Most importantly, he teaches her about Christ's love for her and what it means to live a Godly life. He leads by gentle firmness and guides her in the right direction. He allows her to make her own choices but disciplines her when necessary. And to top it off, he loves her mommy. He displays unending, selfless love to me and that is something Aubrey will carry with her the rest of her life.
Having a special relationship with one's daddy is one of life's greatest gifts. I know from experience. My daddy is my rock and my sense of all things solid and right. He knows everything and can fix anything. He does anything for me and will go to the ends of the earth to make sure I'm happy and taken care of. He cooks my favorite dishes and loves to pick up special treats for me. He loves Aubrey and spoils her rotten. He works hard and shows my momma love and respect year after year. He truly is one of a kind.
My father in law is just as golden and I am always inspired by his love and dedication. I can easily see why my husband is such an awesome dad...because he learned it by watching his dad. I can't believe I am so lucky to have so many amazing, Godly men in my life. God opened up his "amazing father bucket" and poured it out on me.
On Father's Day, I can't help but be overwhelmed by God's goodness and faithfulness to me. He is the greatest Father we could ever ask for and He alone is the ultimate Father. I'm forever thankful for His unending love for me.
Happy Father's Day to all the amazing men in  my life...thank you for being such men of honor, respect, love and commitment.
Christian, thank you for leading our family and being the father my children desperately will need to make it through this life. I know Aubrey will be able to accomplish anything because she will have you by her side. Keep telling her she is beautiful...special and loved.
