Father's Day

It was Chris's first real Father's Day yesterday, so I thought it deserved something cute and special. I gave him a framed picture of our 12 week ultrasound along with a poem called "My Daddy's Hand" that sits on a cute little rod-iron easel. The poem made me cry the first time I read it, I thought it was so adorable. Happy Father's Day, Chris. I love you!

My Daddy's Hand
Daddy, Take my hand in yours and you will plainly see,
How very much I need you now to love and care for me.
As my little hand grows, I will need you even more,
Everything I do in life, I have never done before.
Teach me to be kind and loving, sharing and forgiving,
Show me through your acts of love the pure joy of living.
The years will pass by quickly and one day I will be grown,
I will pass what you have taught me onto children of my own.
Hold me always in your thoughts and remember when we are apart,
The special love between a child and a daddy's heart.
