Choosing Connection: My Gratitude Photo Journal

I have watched Kris’s transformation as a parent.  I do not think he will mind me saying that he had no idea how his life was going to change once we had a child.  In fact, I do not think he believed it would.

Couple that with a wife who does not back down and whose own views of parenting were turned upside down, and my poor husband was in for quite a ride.  Like most dads though, he always wanted what was best for our children and he trusted their mother.

Today, I am grateful for:

A daughter who loves her dad,

and a father who is madly in love with his children.

For a father who always “needs” a hand,

and who never runs out of strength.

For encouraging projects to take longer,

and insisting that comfort always be given.

Today I am grateful for the father of my children, who has chosen connection… over and over again.

Happy Father’s Day Kris!

  1. Absolutely love this! Your kids are adorable and so is your husband. I love the pictures, all that love and comfort – and I love being reminded of all the good daddys out there.

    • Elena,

      That is one of my all time favorites. I remember the moment so clearly… thinking of how Owen was experiencing the moment! Thank you for visiting!

  2. Such a sweet tribute to your husband. I love this, especially the one with the drill.

    • Jennifer,

      There is something about a parent taking time from the completion of their project to teach their child, isn’t there? Thank you so much for stopping by.
