I’m not sure how to start this so let me say a quick Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. I just noticed my last post was about Father’s day also, funny how a year flies by so quickly. I swear I will try to write more often. That being said…
It is hard enough to accept a someone new into your family that you did not choose, let alone someone you dislike. Having experienced this in my own life (my stepfather) with extremely negative results I expected to have a hard time when my children married…. and I did. At least with my oldest child’s spouse anyway. We all make mistakes I guess and that one was a mistake from beginning to end and shattered the foundation of this family. We were broken, or at least it felt that way to me. So it was with great trepidation that I once again prepared to accept new members into our family when my two youngest daughters decided to marry. Would we survive or be broken beyond repair this time.
Well I am happy to say….delighted to say… I have two of the best son in-laws anyone could ask for. I feel so lucky that my daughters chose such good men and that they are part of my family. They are not only good husbands to my daughters but good sons to us and their own families as well. They are loving and kind so I knew they would be good fathers…and they are. In fact they have exceeded any expectations I may have had. They are change the diapers, hands on daddies. They are role models for their sons and for each other’s son as well. I’m very proud of them and want to say thank you for being who you are and for not only being part of my family but making me a part of yours.
I only hope that some day they will understand my sense of humor better….or at least forgive me for it.
