I want you to know that I am very excited that you want to be a part of my daughter’s life. I’m sure you are already sensing what a special woman she is, which is why you are considering entering into a relationship with her. I want you to know that we’ve been praying for you for a LONG time. In fact, her mother and I have been praying for you before our daughter was even born. Well, maybe it wasn’t you.

No matter the task, it really has much less to do with my “passion” but much more about my “willingness” to do what needs to be done since there is no one else that can do what I can do in my family as a father.
It’s the weekend. It’s man time, right? Well, some of the best times you’ll have with your kids are in those projects and work around the house. Get ’em off the bench, dad.
