Mowing the lawn with Dad

Mowing the lawn with Dad

Our only daughter is getting married in 2 days.  That’s her on top of my shoulders in the photo when she was still in diapers.  She loved to ride on my shoulders whenever she could. It didn’t matter if I was going for a walk around the block, in the backyard, or even mowing. She always wanted to plant herself on top of my shoulders and hold on to my head.

I miss those days, but I do know she is going to be happy.  I just hope I will have taught her some of the important things in life like how to be a good spouse, and how to be a good parent.  I also hope I have taught her enough about the LORD along the way and I hope she will be able to train up her own children in the same way.

I did the best I could and now it’s her turn!

  2. I am happy for you, Tony. I am certain that your daughter feels very loved by you as well, and that will never change. May your son in law bring you great joy in the years ahead and may God bless you with many grandchildren. 🙂 Then you can read all of your story books to them and they will have a precious treasure all of their days from their dear Grandpa who wrote them. Blessings on you and grace and peace to you as you celebrate this very happy occasion.

  8. What a wonderful photo to share Tony. The relationship you have with your daughter reminds me of the one I shared with my Father who passed away when I was 16. I hope you all have the most perfect of days Saturday. I’ll be thinking of you.
