Happy Fathers Day

Another year has gone by, and more fathering lessons have been learned. Hopefully my kids have learned a bit, too.

For my part, I’ve learned – perhaps more than in other years – that being a father is simultaneously the best thing I’ve ever done, and the most frustrating thing I’ve ever done. Thankfully the former outweighs the latter by a large margin.

I’ve got a lot of years left doing this job, hopefully, and I’m looking forward to them. (Well, most of them, anyway. I’m pretty terrified of the teen years with two girls…)

And as I consider my role as a father this year, I can’t help but think of my father’s role. Thank you is insufficient, so here is a reminder of what he started…

    Happy Fathers Day, Jeff! You’re not alone. I get frustrated and delighted by the very same kids. :) And I don’t think the teen years will be quite as scary and you do. But there’s no convincing you of that right now. We’ll just trust the Lord and pray hard!

    Our Fathers have much to be proud of (if I do say so myself!) and we owe them so much. Thanks Dad Brodhag and Dad Caddick! We love you both.

    And thank you, Jeff, for being such a great father to our kids. I love you.

  • Happy Father’s Day to you.

    We have one about to leave the teen years and were lucky enough to get out the other end unscathed. One down and three to go.
