It's All About Him Today

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there! Mr. Tide and I were both blessed to have wonderful fathers who taught us that hard work pays off, honesty and fairness will always prevail, a sense of humor will get you through, and that loving your children is the most important job you'll ever have!

Even though the last year of my father's life was not a good one for the two of us, I owe so much of who I am to the man that he was! And Mr. Tide is also the loving man and father he is today because of his wonderful Dad! Along with being great fathers, both of our dads were very special grandfathers who have enriched our children's lives immeasurably over the years!

So today will be about Mr. Tide. He'll get breakfast in bed, a yummy dinner, his favorite dessert, and some presents. I realize each and every day how lucky I am to be able to call him my husband and am constantly reminded of how happy I am that he is the father of my children, but today he'll get a little extra pampering. He works hard and loves harder, and I know that our children will be extraordinary parents if they choose to have children because of the stellar example he has set for them!

I hope that each of you will have the chance to spend today doing something fun with a special dad in your life!

To honor my late father, my father-in-law, and Mr. Tide I created a video to say how grateful I am to each of them and for the fine example they have set for fathers everywhere! (be sure to have your volume turned up)

  11. Too, too lovely.
    I spoke with my dad today - his birthday, for a double-celebration. I wish that I could make the miles disappear so that I could have seen him today - but my son and my grandchildren were with him, so he had a great day!

  12. Awwww, love seeing the old photographs, and what a perfect song and tribute to all the fathers in your life Kat. I just know Mr. Tide was lovingly pampered today. ~Lili
