To my loving husband, the father of my son…
You are the strength which holds us.
You are the light which lights our way.
You are the shade which protects us.
You are the love which fills us.
Thank you for being the steadfast influence in our son’s life.
Thank you for guiding him in the way he should go.
Thank you for fixing his toys – always.
Thank you for showing him he is loved, even in discipline.
We love you like the gerbil loves nuts.
We love you like the flowers love the sun.
We love you like the hummingbirds love nectar.
We love you more than we can ever say or show.
Thank you for being the father you are to our boy.
To all the fathers out there, Happy Father’s Day!
