On Father's Day I'm reminded I've been very blessed in the "man" aspect of my life.
|Not our Rambler, but this is what it looked like.|
Likewise, my husband is a super dad. His decisions are based on how they'll affect his family. His free time is spent his kids. My husband is a bright man. He has an advanced degree. He's a type A, competitive, driven male. He could quite easily fit into the workaholic category. I have no doubt, if he desired, he could be rather successful in the worldly sort of way. Yet, that's not his priority or his aim.
If you asked me as a mother, what I desire most from my children's father, I would say:
Someone who allows our children to be who God created them to be.
In other words, freedom. Molding them and helping them become who they are. Not necessarily becoming someone terrifically prosperous or famous or "world changing". A dad who works so his kids can achieve what they're meant to. Not a father who drives them to become the next great athlete or academic all star. But a dad who wants them to be content and secure.
Happy Father's Day to my husband for doing just that!
