When I first met Jeff I remember one of his friends telling me, “he may not be the best boyfriend, but he’s going to make an amazing husband, an even better father, and I wish I could be more like him.”
(He wasn’t a bad boyfriend, we just lived in different cities and had completely different lives)
But those words stuck with me, and proved their value 1000000 x’s over.
I think a major part of being a great father is showing up, helping out, and being genuine about it.
I won’t list all of reasons why my husband is a great dad (bc no one likes a humble bragger 🤣) but if anyone ever wondered if he was, all you’d have to do is see the happiness on our kids faces.
There is no way on God’s green earth I could have 4 children under the age of 6 if he wasn’t the kind of father who showed up, helped out and was 100% genuine about it.
Take a moment and think beyond the surface of what makes the man in your life a fantastic father and give them praise for it today.
If your guy is like mine, those words will mean much more to him than a tie or new grill.
💙 happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads who show up!
What makes the guy in your life a great dad???
