Father's Day

This is the only picture I took on Father's Day.

I think it pretty much speaks for itself. In the words of Ginny Milton, "crack smoker."

What? That's not what you would do with a $100 infant carrier for Bean?? Silly goose.


"By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness..."
(The Family: A Proclamation to the World)

I can't think of a better scentance to describe my earthly Father. As I studied the scriptures and near Father's Day, I kept trying to find some wonderful quote about what a Father is or should be. Instead, I continually found nothing but information on our Heavenly Father. [Elisabeth Doctrine coming up:] I'm going to take from that, Father's should model themselves after our Father in Heaven. A tall order, perhaps. But definitely possible...

Our Father in Heaven is: loving, merciful, kind, forgiving, patient, gentle, meek, long-suffering, charitable, virtuous, good, an example...

What a blessing I have, to be raised by a wonderful man. He went through so much to become a Father. So many years and trials, and I was the lucky little girl that got placed in his arms.

I'm the lucky girl who gets to be sealed to my Daddy for eternity.

Who, along with these other two lucky girls... gets to spend forever with a wonderful, gentle, meek, kind, loving man.

I am truly blessed.

AND... If all of that isn't enough?!?! I get to go to the temple next year with my sweetheart, and our little Bean. We get to be together for eternity. Bound through time. What a blessing. I can't wait to see Matt become a Father. You have quite the footsteps to fill. Even if you put the dog in the baby carrier... I still love you. (No putting the baby on a leash... deal?) xo
