The Men in My Life

What can I say about the men in my life? First, my husband...

He is the best. When I met him, I knew I would never find another man as good as him...and I still haven't. He stepped up to the plate when our marriage included not just adding me into his life, but also becoming an instant father. And that's what he is, Mister's father. I have to remind myself sometimes that they are not biologically connected, but, in my mind, they are. Mister loves him like no other. H is the perfect person for Mister. H is kind, patient, and very loving. Mister took to him quickly and is still by his side. And then Tiny came along. I knew that she would be her daddy's little girl, and she is. I remember her face lighting up with a smile when H would come home after work. He was the only one she wanted to see and jabber with after he got home. Both of them still smile big with a hello when he comes in. As a father, H has not only stepped up to the plate, he's knocking them out of the field. He is a man of God, a good man, and a loving husband and father. I love you, H.

And now, my dad...

I've been told that I was his little sidekick when I was toddling around. He was the first person I would see in the morning after he got off the night shift, and I would follow him around the house while he made breakfast. He told me that he's the one I walked to when I took my first steps. And he's still the one I go to with many things. He taught me to drive, to tell a joke, and to keep working hard. I saw him work through two jobs and go to school full-time to better our lives. This inspired me to keep going in school too. He knows everything about cars. He can fix anything around the house. He is always smiling. He loves God and his family. He is perfect in my eyes. I love you, Dad.
