Emmett's Dad

I want to take a moment and share a few things about an amazing dad. A dad who sometimes has to take the back seat in his family, who spent 8 months worth of nights in a hospital reclining chair to be by his fragile son's side as he fought for his life. A dad who spends hours upon hours on the phone with the insurance company, paying medical bills or making the "stern" phone calls when his wife is frustrated and can't get answers from doctors offices, ect. A dad who always puts his family first, loves his God and Savior and loves with wife with all of his heart;)
This dad, many times, works long 60 hour plush weeks, never complains and provides an honest income for his family. He teaches his son's how to work hard and how to run and play, sports, legos and video games with his son's in which loves every minute of it.

This dad loves to challenge himself in work, education and extracurricular activities. He has great patients as he sometimes has to only "listen" and not try to"fix" his wife's firecracker moments when she goes off on a tangent. He is supportive and encouraging of his wife's crazy ideas. He quietly and modestly loves to serve and help others. No public praise is needed, for he receives satisfaction from seeing the joy in those he serves. 

 I am so blessed to have this "dad" as the father of my two boys and my husband. I am grateful we are a family who will be together forever! I am grateful that after nine years of marriage, we are stronger than ever as husband and wife and I sure am in love with this man. I am so grateful he is example that my boys have to follow.  Hooray for a terrific dad!!! Thank you Michael!
