father's day blahs


so I'm really just over father's day... 

sometimes when I see families all together and justin's gone, it's hard for me not to feel resentful...or frustrated...or annoyed. I know it's wrong. I should be happy for all of these families, that their daddies get to be home with them. but I'm not. I'm only wishing justin was here with his family. 

that said, he is a really excellent father to our children. 

over the last couple of years I have seen my husband do some awesome things. if I  listed them all it would take up an entire page front and back.,,

He stuck by me when I was a scared 19 year old girl; he didn't have to, but he did
When I was pregnant with Avery, he went to every single doctor's appointment; he didn't miss a single one
He stayed up the entire first night after Avery was born, just holding her and watching her sleep
He left his family and home to pursue a career and to be a provider…and he did it for us
He has played dollhouse, read the same stories a zillion times, and watched princess movies till he probably couldn't stand it anymore…and then he did it again
He bought me a beautiful watch for my birthday, because it "matched my hair"
He left me notes in my phone before he left for deployment
He is always encouraging me to pursue my passions
He is more patient than I ever thought about being…I don't know how he does it
He is hardworking, humble, and loyal; anyone who knows him is blessed indeed
He is a family man; I love that he is content to be home with us during all of his free time
He is the funniest person I have ever known
He takes everything in stride; it's hard to get Justin bent out of shape
He drove to mcdonald's at 10 at night to satisfy a pregnancy craving
He has attended ballet and gymnastics classes…and pretended he loved it
He has taken Avery on dates and shown her what  a REAL man is like, so that she'll know what to look for when she is older
He loves me for who I am, and is helping me our daughters what a marriage should be like
He has never raised his voice at me; not once 

this man…I cannot say enough about him. it brings tears to my eyes to think about our future together; I'm so thankful that I get to spend the rest of my life with him. I could not have chosen a better father for my children if I'd tried…I'm truly glad I get to share the adventure that is parenthood with him. 

and so, now I'm going to pretend that father's day is o v e r. moving on...
