I’ve loved you since we were just a couple of kids.
Becoming Mrs. Neville has made me one happy lady!
My heart has been filled to the max with love for you
but one thing I never knew till 2003, was that
a heart could grow…
When you became my husband, I thought that was the pinnacle of love
and to a degree, I suppose it was.
But when you became the father to our children, a whole new love
for you, in my heart was awaken. My heart grew a size
with the birth of each child we share
and love has filled it to the brim.
To see you hold, rock, sing to and love our babies
has been one of my life’s greatest joys!
There really are no words that I can find to describe
the love and appreciation I have for you,
for the kind of father that you are
to our little Neville’s.
So as simple as it may seem, I just want to thank you!!
Thank you for all the diapers you’ve changed, the vomit you’ve cleaned,
the tears you’ve dried, the boo boo’s you’ve bandaged,
every prayer you’ve said over them
while they were sick or hurting.
Thanks for all the hugs you gave, the kisses you’ve given,
the thumbs up and the words of encouragement
you’ve given them over the years.
Thank you for making time to read with them, blow bubbles, build block towers, play games,
take walks, ride boats, plan vacations, share dreams and goals,
and teaching them how to explore!
Thanks for the times you’ve made them belly laugh, the pillow fights, the silly jokes,
the wrestling moves and tickle wars, for teaching them the silly “art of pranking”
and for sharing your love for art with them.
Thanks for all of the holiday traditions, making memories together, the crazy grocery store trips,
shoulder rides and smiles that you’ve given them
Thanks for answering hard questions, leading family devotions, reading
God’s precious Word to them
and showing them how to reach the Throne of God
Thank you for all that you have taught them and are teaching them.
Thank you for being present in their lives and being an example to them by
how you’re living your life before them.
For walking in integrity, seeking out truth, living by faith,
trusting in God, showing mercy and living in God’s great grace
I am thankful that you are my husband and their Dad!
The righteous man walks in his integrity;
His children are blessed after him.
Happy Father’s Day my Love!
