Many Gentle Voices Call Him Father

“Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!”- Lydia M. Child (1802-1880)

My husband is one of a kind. He is an incredible father- a good man.

His children love him well.

He loves them well, makes them laugh, encourages their hearts, and believes in them.

They make him laugh and encourage his heart too.

They say a million words with their eyes and “I love you” countless times with the touch of tiny fingers.

They are his reward in this life. The fruit of a labor of love.

They grow and they reflect him in so many ways, while at the same time becoming who he believed they could be; because over and over again, he told them they could do anything they dreamed of doing, be anything they longed to become.

He is a good father, and we love him.
