5Q Friday: Father's Day Edition


1. What do you appreciate most about your children's Dad? He tells them every day how much he loves them and he lets them know how proud he is of both of them. They know that he would do anything for them and that they can always come to him if/when they need him. :O)

2. Do you always wear your seat belt? always...always....always!

3. Do you dream and do you remember them? I dream often, and remember lots of them. They are always weird and make no sense at all though.


4. What is one thing you swore you'd never let your kids do before having them, that you have now changed your ways about? My answer to this would be "get a tattoo". I personally don't like tattoos, but when Logan wanted his first at age 16, Peter and I went along with the idea. Peter decided to make it a father/son thing and got his first ever tattoo also. Of course, anyone who has gotten a tattoo knows that you can't stop at just one, so over the next few years, Logan got several more. Fast forward to Nathan, age 16......he started talking about getting a tattoo, but I was dead set against it. Nathan thought that I was unfair for letting Logan and not him, but I didn't back down, and he turns 18 next week...still tattoo-less. It's okay to change the rules {back}, even if you went against some of them with your first child.

5. If you could be granted one wish, what would it be? The first thing that came to mind were the lyrics to the song "My Wish" that was sung at graduation last week. When I went back and read them, I thought that pretty much summed up my wish for my boys.

I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you want to go,
And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,

But more than anything, more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

I hope you never look back, but ya never forget

All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
And you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
And you always give more than you take.

But more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

This is my wish
I hope you know somebody loves you (my wish, for you).
May all your dreams stay big (my wish, for you).
