Dads

I believe that, perhaps, the most influential factor of being a great dad is having a great dad. Fortunately, I have had 27 years of that kind of influence.


I'm pretty sure that Tricia has been just as fortunate.


Thanks to everyone who has/is wishing me a happy first father's day! I really appreciate it! Make sure you check out Tricia's Blog Post from early this morning.

Thanks!

Nate

You are ROCKIN' the Daddy gig, Nate! The first picture of you doing Kangaroo Care with Gwyneth made me cry like a baby; it's one of the most tender moments I think I've ever seen captured on film. My world is a better place for getting to watch you turn into SUPERDAD, and you have some good footsteps to follow in, fo sho.

I think you're right Nate. Gwyneth Rose is a lucky little lady. Again, Happy Fathr's Day.
Tricia, your post choked me up. It is 10 years since my Dad's accident and I miss him every day. Your Dad sounds alot like mine..
Hope y'all have a wonderful day and that soon you'll be able to go home again. Continuing to pray for y'all.
God Bless

Missed the last post so I'm catching up... glad to hear the biopsy is at least over - I will turn my prayers to good results.

Our small group at church this morning was talking about how WE (as parents) are the biggest influcence in our children's lives... be it their spiritual lives, their physical mannerisms, their emotional needs - we're it! I am happy that you and Tricia both had such great role models.

Happy father's day, Nate and both grandfathers! I hope you were able to celebrate.

Take care,
Kara

I loved these pics of the two grandfathers with baby Gwyneth. What beautiful expressions on their faces as the gaze at her. Nate, this was a great idea to post about your own dads. These are the men who have molded you and Tricia into the people you have become and are today. I am still praying for Tricia, now even more after this last setback.
