The summer before my senior year of college I stayed in town for summer school, instead of relaxing at my parents’ home 3 hours away. I worked on campus, lived with my boss’s family, and got four classes out of the way.
One Sunday night a few of us college students helped out with the children’s group at our church. As I watched one of my guy friends play with the kids I thought, “He’s gonna make a great dad one day.”
Boy, was I right!!!
Fast forward 16 years and I watch that same guy play with OUR kids every day. Granted, there are times when I question his judgment, like in August when he taught our sons how to start a fire on our driveway using magnifying glasses! But, it’s difficult to stay annoyed when he also shows them how to walk on homemade stilts, demonstrates the power of air pressure with plastic bottle “rockets,” and spends his vacation days taking our sons to Cub Scout camp outs.
I am so thankful for my husband, the dad he’s become, and the role model he is for our four sons!
Why are you thankful for your husband?
