This wonderful man works endlessly to provide for us. He works his full time job, and does a few side jobs to help cover the cost of our needs and medical bills. He gets up every day and never complains. He goes all day, and often time doesn’t get rest until after kids are in bed.
Some days it feels so easy to get frustrated when he falls asleep on the couch or when he isn’t home to help more. Especially on the days when I feel so run down, and consumed with tasks, and masons appointments. Instead of being upset with me, he comes home, helps clean up the house, hugs me, reminds me that we will work through it all together.
These Dads, if they’re anything like my husband, sacrifice so much. They’re running on fumes some days, and we miss it, we miss the exhausted look on their faces. We forget how hard their days can be.
A few years ago I wrote a post about him, and wanted to share it here.
Some times in struggles of motherhood, we forget the hardships of fatherhood. The early morning wake ups to get out the door for work, so he can be the sole provider for his family. The weight of it all on his shoulders. He works hard so I can stay home to raise the family he helped me build. He misses out on first steps, and first words. While through all of it, he gets the worst part of the deal. The kids choose mom over him in almost all aspects. He does the heavy playtime, he loves them despite everything. He also loves me, despite it all. Bad moods, messy hair, exhaustion. He still tries to make me laugh, he still flirts with me, he supports me always and he helps me. While I’m struggling to keep it all together, he’s the glue that fixes us. He never complains, he just does. He survives, and he loves with all of his heart.
Don’t forget how hard our husbands, and the father of our children work to make this life what it is.
I find myself in total awe of my husband. He truly is one of a kind ♥️
Happy Father’s Day! Enjoy your day ♥️
With Love, Tiffany
