to the happy dad.

this is what our happy fathers day looked like.

you needed no training or help
when you became a dad.
you just were.
like it is why you are even here
in the first place.
but not only that, you are
delighted to do so.

thank you for
never treating parenthood
like it's a chore
(i could learn a thing or two from you...truly)
thank you for your faith
and the comfort you bring
with your priesthood.

we would simply be lost without you.
we love you with a thousand hearts.

.....

and to my dad who has supported
me more than i ever deserved.

because of you i know
service.
acceptance.
humility.
how to bait a hook.
charity.
forgiveness.
and sacrifice.

thank you for your powerful love.
and thank you for loving dave and
bennett so much.
