Happy Father’s Day

I thought I would get to sleep in as a special father’s day gift. Nope. I have now discovered the new joy of waking up to your child in your bed, and he’s not even a year old. He’s not doing the “Daddy, Daddy, Daddy!” yet. He does stick his little hand out and pat me on the back to get my attention while he’s laying between us nursing. And then he smiles so big when I open my eyes from a deep sleep and look at him finally.
That is a joy that anyone who’s had a child can understand, but once you are a father…wow.
When I look at my son, I think about the joy my dad must have had looking at me. I still catch him looking at me that way.
So Happy Father’s Day to all the daddies out there.

What fond memories do you have of your father?
