So I'm going to be real instead of posting a belated Happy Father's Day I'm just going to go against the grain and say that Father's Day is not my favorite holiday. To be completely honest it doesn't even scratch the surface of my top ten. My biological father and I haven't spoken since I was 7 and my stepfather left my mom right after I graduated highschool. To say the least the father figures in my life have been less than stellar. But I find solace in the fact that I have a Heavenly Father who can encompass all an earthly father should be and so much more. I have struggled with feelings of bitterness and resentment over missing out on that special bond that a father has with his daughter but I know that God has plans that are bigger than my own and I can trust Him to provide all that I will ever need in a father.
So to end this gloomy note I do have something positive to say about Father's Day, and that is that I have a fabulous Father In Law without whom I wouldn't have my amazing husband. It was his relationship with his son that made Mr. A the man I married so for that I'm thankful and blessed.
