To my husband on Father's Day,
I'll never forget the look on your face as I watched you become a father. Your eyes were full of love and pride as you began what will perhaps be the most important chapter of your life, fatherhood.
Watching you grow as a father has been a privilege. I remember when Eli was small, you would chew on your tongue as you held him because you were so focused and fatherhood felt so new. Then I watched the two of you get to know each other. You became more comfortable in your role as a father and Eli grew to trust you and rely on you. As Eli has grown, so has his unfailing trust in you.
Each day when Eli wakes up, he immediately asks for "daddy." Every day when you return home from work, his eyes light up as he hears you walk through the door. He knows the sound of your footsteps, and he can't wait to greet you.
I have no doubt that as Eli continues to grow, the two of you will continue to become inseparable. Eli and his Daddy. Daddy and his Eli.
Teach him to be brave. Teach him to love. Teach him to serve others and serve the Lord.
Eli and I love you so much Joseph. Happy Father's Day!
