Wishing a very Happy Father's day to a wonderful group of men who show my children what is means to be Dad and not just a father.
Daddy, who is always there and bought The Boy golf clubs so they could play together.
My uncle, who sent The Boy a personalized autographed copy of an autobiography of one of the players on his favorite football team.
My cousin, who took The Boy to Atlanta to see his favorite team play.
My girl friend's father who makes a special deal of The Girl.
The Boy's god father who makes a big deal out of both kids, but especially The Girl.
Lawn Boy who steps up to the plate whenever he isn't helping his own children to help me out doing "Dad" things like carpool, practice runs, and delivery of forgotten items.
My children's own father, both because of physical distance that I created and emotional distance that is his own, is just not there for them as a dad should be. My children and I are so very blessed to have so many who help minimize that loss.
