It occurred to me just a few minutes after I hit publish on this post, that one of the main reasons I was able to dote on my mom for so long is because God has also given me such an incredibly giving and sacrificial father as well.
My dad, during six of his eight weeks of radiation treatments, freed my mom up so that she could come to Minneapolis and help us after Peter’s birth. This isn’t new for my dad though, he has been sacrificing for his family and putting his wife and kids first for as long as I’ve known him. He is a good father, the very best in my opinion.
I love you, Daddy, and I’m wishing you a very Happy Birthday today!
