Happy Father's Day!

Brian, I know that you have already been spoiled with your amazing father's day presents of a tee-shirt, a foot scrubber and some candy. But I wanted to give you one more gift today, I wanted to write into our family record my feelings about you and the role you fulfill in our family.

You are such a wonderful father. You are a good provider, a good teacher, and a good man who is setting a example to your children of what a husband and a father should be. There is no doubt that your children all adore you. They run to you with open arms and genuine joy every time you come home, whether you've been gone for two days or two minutes. Your kindness, your humility, and your perseverance through all of life's challenges are some of your best qualities and things that I admire you for greatly. The priesthood that you hold and honor blesses our home and our family. The support you give me to learn and enjoy new pastimes is so appreciated.  Most especially I have come to realize over the past few months, that for all the struggles and problems we've had to work through and overcome through the years I have never, ever, not even for one second, ever doubted that you love me and the children with every fiber of your being.  Being loved that completely is a precious gift that I will always be grateful for.  I know that these children we have been blessed with are miracles. This life we have is a miracle. It's so easy to get bogged down in the day to day and forget just how amazing our story really is. I love you so very much and I want everyone to know what an exceptional man you are. So Happy Father's Day my love, thank you for being the father of my children.

That is the sweetest, most thoughtful fathers day gift you've given me! Thank you so much. (You've made me tear up at work!) You and our kids make it easy to want to be the best husband and dad that I can. I am so lucky to have you in my life. Thank you for being patient with me, I know it's not easy. You're a great mom and I couldn't ask for a more supportive and loving wife. Thank you, and I Love You! Brian
