Just before bedtime, Dayton (five-year-old) asked me what my “favorite thing” was. I said, “God.” The conversation continued. Dayton: “Then what?” Daddy: “The Bible.” Dayton: “Then what?” Daddy: “Mommy.” Dayton: “Then what?” Daddy: “My kids.” Dayton: “Then, my hair, right?” Yep–that is exactly what he asked! If you haven’t seen a photo of him, you need to know that he has a beautiful head of blonde hair! I guess he’s proud of it! Honestly, I really do like it! I also like the question my two-year-old asks me pretty regularly now: “Daddy, coffee shop now, please?” We spend time together on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Today we went to the coffee shop and then to the park. It was a lot of fun. I am thankful tonight that my son hugs and kisses me and asks me questions, and I am thankful that my baby girl likes to hang out with her almost middle-aged Dad. “Children are a blessing from the Lord” (Ps. 127:3). Thanks for peeking into my life today to hear my confession: I love my kids.
