And then I watched that man be a father to his son. He was successful in his career, enjoyed spending time with me, and was really good at having a good time. But nothing in life was more important to him than his son. The love and devotion he showed for his son were remarkable and absolutely heartwarming.
And somehow, while I was busy trying not to, I fell in love.
It may have been Rob, the smart and successful man, who caught my attention; but it was Rob, the compassionate and devoted father, who stole my heart.
Fast forward five years later. I married this wonderful man and am pregnant with his child – another son. As excited as I am about becoming a mom, I am just as excited to see my husband become a father again. Given my life experiences, I am so grateful to have found a humble man who knows how to forgive and love unconditionally. I know that my son will never have to wonder if his father loves him, or worry that he’ll make a mistake too great to earn his father’s forgiveness.
This year, on Father’s Day, I have a lot to be thankful for, especially my husband and the father of my child. Thank you for giving me all of your heart, and thank you for being you.
