My dear Mr. Darling is the picture of a loving, sacrificial father. He is the first man in my life that I have known to be the ultimate dad to his children. I am not just saying that to puff him up... Since the day we brought home our first born, to life's struggles, the loss of our second child, the birth of our third, finishing his degree while working a full time job, to full time Seminary at present...he is and always have been Godly, patient
( as well as one can be),
loving, giving, mentoring, honorable, loyal, genuine, always there for us and true from day one. I have experienced through him things I have not had the opportunity to experience in my younger life, due to a childhood of inconsistency, trials and unfortunate pain of a broken home. Not to say I never loved my father, I always have and do to this day. We have a better relationship now then we had many, many heartbreaking years ago... I am truly blessed that he is my dad and all that is behind us... We have built a sweet relationship I am very proud of.. I have also been blessed with a step father. Being as young as he was, with no biological children of his own, coming into a broken family, I have to say I really look up to him for enduring those dreadful teen age years and hurt he had to live with over the years. I call him dad too... and proud to also call him a wonderful friend.
Yet, it is in my husband, through his endless love and faithfulness in God and his family that makes him a one of a kind dad. My children and I are blessed beyond measure, in which I owe completely to my Heavenly Father for blessing us with such a gift.
May you have a wonderful Father's Day!
