Well it’s that time of year again….a time to honor fathers. I have to honor the father of my children. I think Rob gets an even higher honor than most Dads.
Rob married me when I was a single mom of 3 boys. He had two …one of them not biologically his and one that was. Then we had one together. Rob was also a single dad being the mother & father of his 2. He didn’t know what he was doing but he did his best and he loved them.
Rob has never treated any of our kids differently. He has treated them all as if they all were created by him. He would give any of them anything. In fact he does, He goes to work every day, breaking down his body…sacrificing all that he has in every aspect to provide for a large family.
Rob isn’t social but he goes to their functions and sacrifices himself for them. Rob goes without new shoes and jeans quite frequently to make sure they have all they need. I can’t tell you how many times he’s given up things so they could have sports fees ect. Rob would love to have a sports car, mancave and the latest & greatest electronics…but he settles for what he has…..mostly. 🙂
I think in this day & age we hear a lot about how dads don’t stick around for their kids and support them in more ways than one. Well I have a man who supports more than the kids he created and that says a lot about Rob’s heart and how honorable he really is.
On top of all of those things he supports a relationship with their bio-dad. If any of the kids say anything negative about their dad he corrects them and honors their dad’s position.
Rob also honors my position. Nobody can say anything bad about me or treat me poorly…if so he supports me, takes my side and corrects them. I appreciate that very much.One of the things I did right in my life was choose good fathers for my children.
I could go on & on about how blessed & thankful I am for the man I married. I know he has made a huge difference in the lives of our family and I think he probably doesn’t hear it enough. I am thankful that God brought us together and kept us together. I appreciate him.
I hope one day all of our children will understand how blessed they are to have this amazing man in their lives.
I hope you all have that special man in your life!
