Everyday I am thankful for all the wonderful people in my life. However, the one thing that brings True Joy to my heart is my Family. I am most thankful that I have the ability to be the husband to my beautiful wife and the father to my 4 awesome kids.
Sitting in church the other day and listening to the pastor speak, I felt like I had to write this and share it with everyone. In a world full of “things” we often forget what true joy really looks like. Some people may think is comes in a set of new keys. No it doesn’t come from the shinny new sports car. That “happiness” will come and go, as does that new car smell. Some may think it comes from that new video game you got for your birthday. That “happiness” will also come and go, when your brother gets a new game for his birthday.
Henry War Beecher stated: “We never know the love of a parent till we become parents ourselves.” This is so true. Parents we will do just about anything for our kids because we love them. Don’t forget to take the time today to tell your kids how much they mean to you! Remember the amount of unconditional love you felt when you first laid your eyes on your child. The first time you held their tiny and fragile body in your arms. Now look a your kids, and I mean really look at your kids. Look into their little eyes and remember what you have created. It is the best part of my day and I hope you remember to make it the best part of yours!
