Fabulous Father Friday

Notes from my Nest has tagged me to participate in Fabulous Father Friday -- and since my husband happens to be a Fabulous Father -- I thought I'd play along!

Here are the rules: Write your own post with your own FFF musings. You may write about the father of your children, your own father, or any other beloved father figure in your life, past or present. Your post may take the form of a random assortment of thoughts, an appropriate photo, a poem, a letter to the person (your husband for example), a funny story, or a unique tradition that you (or your kids) have with this person. If you are writing a post on your own blog, please mention Fabulous Father Friday in your post and post a link back to Notes from my Nest's FFF post and then enter your link into Mr. Linky at the bottom of her post.

You will often see Hunter and my husband together pal-ing around. Hunter adores his Daddy, and wants to help him any way he can -- and even though at times, Hunter's "help" can get in the way, my husband always lets him feel like he is involved. My husband is a hands-on Daddy who will not hesitate to bathe, dress, feed, or care for Hunter in any way necessary. We both work full-time jobs, and even though he is tired when he comes home from work, he picks Hunter up from daycare, plays with him, fixes dinner, and does much of the work around the house. He is so patient with Hunter, and is so loving and gentle. He even disciplines in a loving manner -- even though he doesn't always "feel" loving or gentle because Hunter has pushed every limit possible. I admire the way my husband constantly puts his own needs aside for the needs of his family, and love the way he'll get on the floor and play with Hunter. He is an awesome, God-fearing, Bible-loving, Godly father, and I am so blessed that he is the father of my child! My husband once heard on a family talk show that rules without relationships lead to rebellion, and it is evident to anyone who knows him that he is actively pursuing a close relationship with Hunter. I love you, honey!!

I know I don't share many pictures of him, because I want to respect his privacy, but here is a picture where it shows him "in action" with Hunter, while protecting his privacy (this was a hard one to find!).

What a fabulous tribute... Father's are often unappreciated. Love that photo!
