(aka) my husband, our son #1, our son #2, and our son-in-law
Another Father's Day weekend is here. What I can say that I haven't already shared?
Pictures. I'll share fun pictures of some of the men in my life.
First, of course is the very first man to hold my heart, who taught me the basics of life and launched me into adulthood...
|Daddy walked me down the aisle|
After a few boyfriends in my teen years, I met this one just out of high school ...
He did the math to convince my daddy we could afford to get married before he completed his Bachelor's Degree and the rest is some pretty wonderful history.
Also there was my father-in-law, a man who was humble and kind.

With the college years behind us and Beloved's new job as a Lieutenant in the Air Force, our family began with Son #1...
I call him "Gray Beard" on this blog because ...
|stuffing his birthday money into his beard|
He can grow a pretty hairy face when he wants to! He's a lot like his dad in some respects and has also become an extensive world-traveler.
About two years after his birth came Son #2 ...
This son shares some of my interests such as cooking and artsy creativity. I refer to him on this blog as "Web Designer" because that is one of the many things he and his wife do with their home-based, free-lance careers.

Surfer Boy married our daughter and created a happy place in our hearts. We love him for the way he cherishes our daughter and their children...

and because he is an all-around nice guy!
There are many more good males in my family (a host of grandsons, a nephew, three nephews-in-law, and my two brothers-in-law) but I don't have enough really good pictures of all of them to do them justice, so I'll just quit here and say I am one very blessed woman to have so many good men in my life.
My prayer for every one of them is from Psalm 37:23 (NIV)
The Lord makes firm the steps
of the one who delights in Him.
