"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

52 Weeks of Blessings-- week 24--Fathers

This weeks blessing is: Fathers.
First and foremost, I'm thankful for my Heavenly Father. For without a loving Heavenly Father, we wouldn't be here! I'm so thankful for for His Son and the Plan that gives meaning to this life.
My fatherI'm thankful for the example he is to me and my family. I'm thankful that he honors the priesthood. My dad was a long haul trucker and so the Children's Primary song, Daddy's Homecoming has always been one of my favorites because we were always happy to see him when he came home.
Daddy's Homecoming
I'm so glad when daddy comes home,
Glad as I can be;
Clap my hands and shout for joy,
Then climb upon his knee,
Put my arms around his neck,
Hug him tight like this,
Pat his cheeks, then give him what?
A great big kiss.

When this song is sung on Father's day I invariably think of when I was young and we would sing this when our dad came home from a long haul.
My father-in-law {who is not cool with his picture being on line}. He too honors the priesthood. He is always there when we need something.
The father of my children.
{who hates his picture taken period.} He a good guy, honors the priesthood, works hard to provide for his family loves me and our kids.
