For once, I seem to be speechless. A miracle, I know.
I have been sitting here at the computer for several minutes not knowing exactly how to being this post.
How do I begin to thank all of the fathers in my life?
I have an incredible earthly father who provided food, shelter, and spiritual nourishment for me. I have an amazing father-in-law who shows me every single day what the true meaning of service is. I also have a pretty outstanding husband...the father of my children. The one who can calm me when I get crazy and who can make me laugh when I'm feeling down.
I could go on and on! Not just about the men I have mentioned but grandfathers, uncles, brothers, cousins, neighbors, friends. I have been blessed with a multitude of good men in my life and I am grateful for them.
Whenever I think of going to church on Father's Day, I get excited because 90% of the time, we sing "O My Father" in Sacrament Meeting. It is one of my favorite hymns because of the truths that it shares with us.
We have a Father in Heaven who loves us and He has sent us here "for a wise and glorious purpose."
We lived with our Father in Heaven before we came to this earth and we were "nurtured by His side."
We have a Heavenly Mother.
When we "leave this frail existence" we will return to our Father and Mother in Heaven.
I am loving my second chance at life.
