The second man in my life is my son, Eric. He is the father of my grandchildren and he is a very special young man. I love him dearly too. I married his dad when he was almost five but before we married Eric had wound his hand around my heart and he would hold on to it forever. He is fun to be with, loving, hard working, a loving father and husband, andbut most of all he is a Christian. He accepted Christ last Father's Day in my father's church, Kellyton Baptist. He called me in Canada to let me know what he had done and I have been so very impressed with who he has become. I like to think I had a small part in him becoming the man he is today. I adore him.
The last guy on my list of favorites for today is my special guy. He is my precious husband, Frank. I love him dearly. He is funny, passionate about his God, people, and his scroll saw work, talented, an amazing cook, loving, a good dad, a wonderful husband. He is my best friend. He makes traveling fun and always has a good story or two to tell. I am amazed when I sit in his church as one of his congregation and listen to him preach. He is a Christian. If I had to pick a man who was near to what my daddy was.....it would be Frank. He touches lives just like my dad did. I am a truly blessed woman.

I would be remiss to say that these are the only Fathers in my life. There are so many more and I wish I could tell you about each one of them and their impact on my life....but time is slipping away and it is getting close to time for me to go and worship my Heavenly Father. Happy Father's Day to all dads out there. I hope you have a wonderful day....get breakfast in bed....and do what you want to do.....but most of all....spend time with the ones you love.
