Happy Father's Day

Asked my sweet husband if there was anything special he wanted to do for Father's Day weekend this year, his reply... he wanted a quiet weekend where he didn't have to go anywhere or do anything.

The weekend started today...so far he has worked on the car, cleaned out the gutters, moved furniture from one room to another, hoed in the garden and water proofed the fountain. What happened to doing nothing? Turns out, it was more about not wanting to have to go anywhere, he wanted to do all this stuff around the house.

For Father's Day we will see our oldest son and daughter in law and the grand kids, will have lunch with "sweet lady" then no plans except for some grilling for dinner. Quiet afternoon of doing nothing? that remains to be seen. Maybe some hammock time?

We  will celebrate Father's Day. Thankful for the kind of dad my husband is to our two sons and daughter in law. He has a servants heart and a love for his family. He is also Mr Fix it, the go to guy when something is broken...that talent is used often. He is also pretty good at squishing bugs and opening jars, just had him squish a spider cricket in the house...yuk! So to my husband, Happy Father's Day.

I understand your husband because that's exactly the type of weekend that my own husband likes. Just being together, uninterrupted, and getting stuff done is such a simple pleasure, isn't it?

Of course, spending the day with the family makes it just perfect.

If the only thing husbands/fathers were good for was squishing bugs, it would be enough reason to appreciate them. What a blessing when they are so much more...

Blessings, Debbie
