Happy Father's Day!

Happy father's day out there to any Dad's that read our blog (I can only think of one or two!).

Today was a bittersweet day for me. It included many firsts....some I looked forward to, and some that I didn't.

*This was the first Father's Day without my Dad. I have been overwhelmed this whole past year with thoughts of him. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about him. I knew this would be a tough week, because Thursday was one year since he has been gone. I can remember that day like it just happened. It is crazy the details your brain remembers. So I have had a double whammy of a week, but with God's grace and mercy, I have survived!

*On a happier note....today was Bryan's first Father's Day as a Daddy! It was really fun to plan and celebrate with him. Cale bought him a grill a couple of weeks ago (so B could pick it out), but of course we had a gift for him to open today. I was able to order him a photobook through Shutterfly that was full of pictures of he and Cale.

*I also did a little cooking :) Yesterday while Bryan was gone playing football, I baked him a cake - chocolate bundt cake (his favorite). Then this morning I cooked his special order breakfast - bacon, grits, and eggs! It was yummo :)

*Then it was off to church....where we had nursery! I heard it was a great message though!

*For lunch we went to the Libby's to eat with the family. Then came home and took a nap (since Cale got us up at 6:00 this morning!!!).

All-in-all a bittersweet day. I miss my Daddy dearly, but am very grateful to be surrounded by people I love and that love me!

I thought about you a lot leading up to today, which in my mind was a way of God telling me to pray for you. You are such a sweet family! Thank you for selflessly serving in the nursery today! I will make you a copy of the message.

I can relate to what you're going through. It was the first fathers day w/o my Dad too. We can rejoice in the fact that they are with their heavenly Father today.

Sorry it was such a bittersweet day, because I know it was here as well. However, it was Bryan's first so please wish him a Happy Father's Day from us (sorry it's late.) I hope you guys had a blast. Maybe the next time we're all able to come down, we'll let Bryan test out his new gift on us, lol. Love y'all!!
