Iced Coffee and Chinese Food

First off, a major Happy Father's Day to my amazing dad! My birth mom tried so hard to sabotage my relationship with him over the years when I was younger. God thankfully opened my eyes to what she did and he has been by my side ever since! He has been there for me through thick and thin despite all we went through when I was a child. I know he loves me unconditionally and is there for me no matter what! I'm so thankful for such a great dad and am thankful he shows my children what a real dad should be like!

Today is a bittersweet day. I wish so bad my children had a father like I have but God had other plans. I was brought to tears today when one of my daughters surprised me with an iced coffee and some chinese food. Her words to me were, since you are having to be both mom and dad, this is a gift to you since you are also "dad" to us! Wow!!! I know I fail in so many ways, but I am thankful my kids still love me no matter what and realize what I try to do for them! Only by God's grace!!

Happy "Father's Day" to those moms who have to fill both roles. Rest assured that God will fill in the gaps knowing you are doing the best you can!!
