As this Father’s day comes to an end I sit back and think of the great job that my husband has done and continues to do as a father and a man of God.
When I first met this man he was a single father that had full custody of his boys. His boys whose lives he made sure he was going to be a part of despite what others thought. Watching him these past eight years be so involved in their lives has been remarkable.
He came out to Chicago before the rest of the family did, but even though he was eight hundred miles away he still found a way to not miss his oldest son’s football games. And I wonder if his son noticed. My husband would fly back and forth from Chicago to New York in October every weekend and part of November to make sure that he wouldn’t miss a single game. It’s not too many men that would do something like that.
While here in Chicago, the same day that he was discharged from the hospital due to a back issue back in January, he went to his youngest son’s basketball game. Despite the fact that he was in pain, he made sure not to miss this basketball game. I wondered if this son noticed.
He is a wonderful father and I’m not just saying this because he is my husband, but because I noticed it even before we got married. And I wonder if his boys notice how much of an impact this man has on their lives. I could sit here and tell you of how much he’s sacrificed to give his boys the life that he may not have had when he was a child, but then I would be here all night.
I love this man with all of my heart and I thank God for crossing our paths.
I hope that you had a great Father’s day husband.
