Father's Day

 

I think it's pretty obvious from this picture that I took on Easter while Chad was home for R&R how loved he is by our boys!

 

Jordyn wearing one of her Navy nurses hats at Walter Reed with Daddy

 

 

This is Jordyn being held by my dad and my mom's dad in the background....I never noticed that Grandpa has a goofy look on his face.

 

God's blessed me with a husband who's an amazing father. For those who use the excuse to why their husband or father's a poor dad....Chad is living proof that you don't have to have an "active" father or father figure in your life. His bio dad left when he was 6 months old. He always had his Grandpa in his life, but he isn't the person who raised him. As many issue's as I've had with my MIL, she did a great job raising Chad. She married a man who didn't treat her well after Chad's dad left and then she married her current husband when Chad was 13 or 14 and at that point Chad was running around with his friends more than he was at home and being influenced by his step-dad. He joined the Army when he was 18.

Chad didn't know what to do with Jordyn when she was born, but let me tell you, he fell in love with her and promised not to fail her and he never did her precious 2 yrs she was alive and he keeps her memory alive. He's been an amazing Father to our boys. I could not have asked for a better husband or a better father, no DADDY to my children. Being a good dad is a choice, if you want to be a good one, you can be...you just have to step up to the plate and do it. I Thank JESUS for the man Chad is...from being a Soldier to Husband, to Father. He's not perfect, none of us are, he loves us with all his heart and wants to do right by us and wants our boys to grow up to be Godly men....if they follow Chad's lead I have no doubt they'll be amazing Godly men and one day Father's themselves!

 

Happy Father's Dady to my honey!

That is a great post on Father's Day.  It does take some effort to be a good dad.  What a blessing your Chad is to you and the boys.
