Happy Father's Day Bill

Happy Father's Day Bill!!!
I am writing a quick post to wish you a wonderful Day!

My thoughts on Father Day sometimes turn sad, but thanks to you I cannot stay that way. Instead of thinking about something I did not have, I see what my children have, and there is no way in the world that I would change things!

The kids have such an incredible man for a father. Nothing is too small for you to get involved in. I have so many neat memories of you with the kids that I am going to share them with you.

1) You were the very first person(aside) from medical staff that held each one of the kids.
2) You bought each baby a stuffed toy on their first day of life that they can cherish.
3) You were such a young man the first time you became a Dad, but you took your responsibility very serious!
4) You have read so many books to the kids.
5) You have made up so many songs to sing to the kids, and they delighted in the musical experiences that you created.
6) As the breakfast cook, you have taught each one to serve any style of egg, and variety of oatmeal, arroz con leche, bacon, ham, potatoes and anything else one could imagine for breakfast.
7) You became the Lego Dad and helped build towers to the ceiling!
8) You have taught the kids to always be lighthearted, loving, sweet, and generous!
9) You have shown by example how one is to be the head of the house, which I know is going to be such a blessing in their own marriages.
10) You have given the kids something that I lacked, and therefore missed even more. You have given the kids you. I will always be forever grateful to you for being the VERY BEST Dad for my kids.

Bill, you are truly an amazing are an amazing husband, you are an amazing friend. I love you so much.

Who'd thought that we would be blessed with these four super kids!
Love Jennifer
