Happy Dad's Day!!

"Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad." ~Author Unknown

I hope that everyone takes time to reflect on and thank the fathers, grandfathers, uncles, etc... in their life (or the men that God placed in their lives to be father figures...). I have been blessed with some great men in my family that have been there to love and support me from day one.

Favorite Husband Memories:
  • Seeing him hold little Nate for the first time.
  • How Nate loved to take pretend sleeping pictures when little Nate was asleep in his arms.
  • Watching little Nate watch his father so closely.
  • When he tells little Nate that he needs to love and respect his mother, and he shows him how.
  • Hearing little Nate say, "My Da's here!!!" when his dad gets home from work.

My favorite Daddy memories:

Just like when I became a mother I couldn't help but appreciate my mother for all that she has done, the same holds true for my dad and my appreciation for how hard he worked to provide for his family...
  • Going to work with dad and sitting in the nurses station or doctors' lounge - that's where I first got interested in medicine :-)
  • Going fishing with him and the boys.
  • How excited and proud of me he was when I went to Michigan and all the Michigan stuff he started wearing.

Favorite Grandaddy Memories:
  • During the summers as little girl, I would go with him to his construction business and riding in his pick-up truck.
  • Him telling me (when I started whistling in the car at age 7) that "girls are not supposed to whistle, girls sing." LOL
  • Hearing little Nate call him "Grandaddy" like I do :-)

My Uncle Billy is one of my favorite people and he has been more than just an uncle, he's more like a friend-dad :-) - along with being an awesome father to his three adorable kids...

Favorite Uncle Billy Memories:
  • When I was little (like less than 7), he would be in his room hanging out with his friends, but he would still let me stay around and I even got to try his turntables.
  • Working with him on his campaigns for state rep in Detroit and watching how he interacted with, and was so committed to bettering the community.
  • In college, when we were on the phone once, we were about to hang up and he says, "Oh, and one more thing I have to tell you, :long pause: I have an icebox where my heart used to be..." LOL!
  • The fact that he was always there for me in more ways imaginable throughout my life and especially during my pregnancy "crisis" period lol.
