My husband is a man who gives endlessly, selflessly, and without reservation to his family. He works long days, and then comes home and cares for his children with all the energy he can muster. He gives his daughter bath time every night, reads her bedtime stories and says goodnight prayers. He plays baby dolls, performs puppet shows and kisses boo-boos. He changes diapers, makes meals, and cleans the kitchen. My husband wakes with our baby at all hours of the night, giving her a bottle and settling her to sleep. He pays the bills, takes out the trash and vacuums the floors. My husband encourages my hobbies, supports my dreams and works his hardest to make them come true. He has afforded me the opportunity to stay at home with our children.
I am so proud of this man. He is a better Father than I imagined, and a most supportive Husband. I want to thank him publicly for sacrificing his own goals and dreams for his family. Recently, my husband sold his share of the company he started so that he could be home more with his children...and me too, i suppose. :) What a testament of the man he is.
He is destined for greatness, and I am so happy to be by his side. There is no other man I would rather spend every tomorrow with; no other man I would want my children to call "Daddy."
We love you, Dan. You are the light of our lives, and we are so proud to call you "ours."
