Yesterday was Father's Day. So, here I am, writing a little bit about the Dads in my life. I guess, when I really think about it, I have a lot of "dads" around me. Grandfathers, Uncles, close friends, etc. But, I guess I really want to focus on the 3 closest to me and my family. First of all, my Dad. I read somewhere that a girls first love is her dad. This is so true. I look at some of the things that I really like about my husband, and I realize, my dad does the same things. He has helped in the molding process of my life, good or bad. I love him and how he has brought me up. Second, my father in law, same thing, only in reverse. I know that as a little boy, you learn how to treat women based on how your dad treats your mom. I've seen how Paul stands up for Gwen sometimes (often scaring me a little when I first met him, ha. I was afraid for my boyfriends life!) I know that, again, he has influenced Danny's life in a way only a father can, so I am very appreciative to him for that. Third, Danny. Wow. When I think of what kind of person I would want to help in rearing my children, no other person than Dan comes to my mind. He is such a great dad and does all that he can for this family. That little boy looks at him like he hung the moon. I am thankful that Kirk has such a great example for a Dad. So, here's a shout out to all those Dads out there! We love you!
