to my dads.

there are four dads in my life.

i was raised by one here on earth. i have a father in heaven. my husband's dad became mine, the day tim and i were married. and, on the thirty first of may this year, timmy became a dad - the father of my own child and any that may be ours in time to come.

all of these men have impacted my life for incredible amounts of good.

tonight i write about two of them. 

i was raised in a house full of love. my mum is kind and gentle, creative and beautiful. my dad is strong and generous, soft and passionate. 

my dad especially loves cuddles. i have known of my power over this tough man my whole life and that power lies within a single hug. 

he is a big sucker for affection. my dad is a genius. he can do any maths equation in his head within seconds. he loves sport. he lives the gospel and gives himself wholly to the God he loves. he cherishes my mum and is completely in love with her. he loves bush poetry - i could listen to him read 'the man from iron bark' all day. he laughs loud and often. he uses hankies instead of tissues. his favourite meal is my mum's steak and kidney pie. he doesn't like my hair when i colour it. he loves babies. he is a wonderful poppy to his eleven grandchildren - he makes every one of them smile and laugh. he loves roo (or "joey" as dad calls him, 'cos "he's only a little roo") and wants to hold him every chance he gets. he is my dad and my heart swells with the love i have for him. 

timmy is now raising roo in a house full of love. tim makes everyone happy. he is understanding and slow to judge. he is giving and considerate. he is passionate. he loves hard and full of emotion. he is the most talented person i know. he is wise and kind. he is an artist, a musician. he loves to make people laugh. he loves to be silly. he feels deeply. he has a big sweet tooth. he explodes with love when he looks at roo. he loves our Saviour. he gives of himself freely and openly. he is the most honest person i have ever met. he is brave. he loves pineapple lumps. he loves hip hop. he is a loyal friend. he is the best birth partner in the world! and, i can't even believe that he is mine and i am his - that we have roo. he loves me so much and i love him more and more, a lump forms in my throat as i try to explain that love.

he is the best dad. roo looks at him with so much love. he knows the safety of his dads arms. roo is full of happiness when he is with him.

thank you, dads. i love you.
