My Life. Beautiful, Ugly, Unfiltered.
father of the year

Our church has sponsored a “Father of the Year Nomination” and will choose a letter at today’s service. Mom’s could write letters for their children if they were too young, and so I decided to write one for Astaire, because I feel like Josh totally deserves this recognition if anyone does. There was so much more I could write, (like all of the work he does AT the church…but everyone there knows that…) so I thought this would be sufficient. He is amazing…
I am not old enough to write yet, I can only color really great pictures. In fact, I can only say a few words. My favorite word is Daddy. When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I yell over the monitor is “Daddy! Up!” He is my favorite person in the world, even though I spend all day every day with my mama.
If anyone deserves to win the father of the year award it is my daddy. Even before I was born he loved me. I know because I could hear him singing to me and praying for me every night as I was growing inside my mama’s belly. He was the first person I saw when I was born and he gave me my very first bath and changed all my diapers while I was in the hospital.
My daddy is a really hard worker. He has three jobs! He works so much so that my mama can stay home and take care of me, and I like that a lot. My mama says he works more than 80 hours a week, but I can’t count that high. I just know that he always has time to play hide and seek with me, and he is almost always here to read my bedtime stories, say my prayers and tuck me in at night.
My daddy is the best daddy in the whole world, and I love him so much!
