My husband and I have had many conversations centered on the things we hope to teach our children. Our hope is that the various characteristics that make up who we are will go hand in hand in the implementation of ongoing lessons on life and love. Our desire is that our girls will learn from both our mistakes and successes. And of course, one day, when they grow up and find love we hope that the person they give their heart to will handle it with as much care as we have.
There are things about my husband that drive me crazy but there are also things about him that constantly reaffirm my reasons for wanting to spend my forever and always with him. I can only hope that the persons my daughters marry will have traits that mirror some of those of their father.
In celebration of Father’s Day I asked some of my friends via social media to share a trait their child’s father has that they hope their future spouse will have. The responses given are a beautiful tribute to a group of men who realize the tremendous gift it is to be a parent. My hope is that this post will bring a smile to the faces of each of these dads as well as countless dads who are a true representation of what it means to be a father.
May our children be so blessed as to one day build a future with someone who is as wonderful of a person as the man they call daddy.
Happy Father’s Day!
