As you know in our house we are gearing up to Father’s Day and I’m happy to report Miss 7 is thrilled with her purchases, and we have had some time to get Daddy’s homemade present together, so were getting on top of it. I have been reminiscing about when hubby and I became parents, it was indeed a very special time in our lives. A moment of pure love and I must admit, pride, in being able to make and raise a new person in our family. As a wife I was absolutely amazed that I was able to fall in love with my husband in a different way, to see him as a father just made me melt, and it still does. I have loved nothing more than observing my husband, friends and family become parents, you see this transition is far beyond the one you make from a teenager to an adult, it brings with it a sense of pride, honour, love, hope and protection. I know that other mums have shared in this moment as well. When they fall in love with their partner all over again and I’m sure you have too.
As an adult I have also enjoyed watching my brothers become fathers. I have watched them grow as a brother to a husband to a father and it’s exciting to seeing your brother grow into a father. It brings with it elements of both families coming together with of course the couple’s own elements. I can say that after 10 years of seeing my brother as a father I still find it just as wonderful, just as eye opening and equally a moment of pure joy and pride. I know it’s father’s day this weekend and it is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on all fathers, be they your father, uncle, brothers, grandfather or other adult male role models in your life, So let’s start the celebrations with a positive celebration about the importance of these wonderful men in our lives, here’s a lovely quote to get us started in the celebrations for father’s day:
Hope you enjoyed it,
