Father's Day...a little late

I haven't gotten the chance to write in the past couple of days, but for good reasons.  Saturday, I woke up early and fed the homeless breakfast in downtown Bradenton.  This was my first week volunteering with Bayside Church, but I am going to continue to do it every week.  Because I was a new face to other volunteers I didn't get much of a chance to interact with the homeless, but rather just other volunteers.  I met two really nice women in their 50's or so who took me out to breakfast afterwards to a cute little place called Norma Rae's.  It was a good start to the day, but then I got slammed at work the rest of the weekend because of Father's day.

Father's day always reminds me of how blessed I really am.  I have the most incredible earthly father, the most forgiving and graceful heavenly father, and last August I gained a phenomenal father-in-law.  I am extremely lucky to have been blessed with these incredible men in my life.  

My dad has always been my hero--he has been a great mentor, provider, husband, boss, father, friend, and so much more to so many people.  I truly believe that this world is a better place because of him.  I am a better person because of him.  It seems like I can go anywhere in Fort Wayne and mention my dad's name and someone says, "Kurt is your dad?  He is such a great guy."  My response: "He truly is!"  
Thank you dad for being the incredible person and father that you are!

My father-in-law has considered me his "daughter" from pretty much day 1 of Brook and I dating--and that has always meant so much to me.  He would do anything for me, and would expect nothing in return.  He is a great father and husband--I am lucky that Brook has such a great model to follow. 

On another note I had an interview yesterday that I am pretty excited about--prayers would be appreciated!!  Thanks!

  1. I've always admired your dad, Abby. (Your mom, too, for that matter.) You've been blessed with wonderful parents! The picture of you and your dad is precious!
