Daddy, you carry me to bed and open jars for mom. I like it when you hold me up high and I look down into your eyes.
My husband, your inner strength is what attracts me to you. You persevere through thick and thin. You do not sway from your duties because things are tough or because you are tired. You keep going. I love you and I thank you for this.
Daddy, you fix things and build things. I want to work hard at school so I can fix things like you.
My husband, your mind is amazing! So different than mine. Your insights into ongoing struggles are so matter of fact I wonder how I didn’t see it. You keep me striving for betterment so that I too may be a source of knowledge for you. I love you and I thank you for this.
Daddy, I like when you bring flowers to mom. She lights up with a big smile. Sometimes you cook breakfast and let mom sleep in. I like it when we surprise mom like this.
My husband, your kindness is evident in your willingness to help with chores and being present to our children. Such tender moments I enjoy witnessing. I love you and I thank you for this.
Daddy, no other laugh brightens my day like yours. I feel so safe when I see you laughing with mom.
My husband, laughter used to come so easy between us. My heart soars when I see you laughing with our children. For the family we have created together and the laughter we have shared, I love you and I thank you for this.
For being the man mom wants and the dad I need; I thank God for you, Dad.
