Happy Father’s Day! Later this week, we will be celebrating Gabe’s birthday which also means the start of our role as parents. Looking back to that time brings many emotions that we will always remember…for many reasons and in many ways. For those of you who have known us for awhile then you know what I’m talking about (sorry this story would go on and on if I started the background ;). And, here we are 7 years later seeing how God is continuing to grow us into who He wants us to be as parents.
I’m not gonna lie…having a business and a family requires a lot of balance. And, I’ll be the first to admit that we fail miserably at the balancing side of things. However, we are continuously setting goals and taking steps that will not only grow our business, but even more importantly, grow our little family. I have seen how God is prepping us all of the time to be who He wants us to be, as business owners, and especially parents.
All of that to say, I am blessed…our kids are blessed. Jeremy is an amazing father to our children and the husband that God knew I needed. 😉 He loves them, shows them Godly discipline, has more patience than I will ever be able to experience, isn’t afraid to get on the floor with them and play and the list goes on and on. Looking back 7 years we had no idea how we would do with this whole parenting thing, but each day God gives us the grace and perseverance to continue this road. Our prayer is that we will be able to raise children who not only know God, but have a relationship with Him. I am thankful, beyond words, that we were raised by God-fearing parents who modeled true parenting to us. On top of that, I am thankful that our children have Jeremy for their father because I know Jeremy’s heart and the relationship he has with our Heavenly Father. This alone brings comfort in this world of parenting and gives me the confidence to believe that God has our little family in the palm of His hand. Happy Father’s Day, dear…we love you.
