We started our day, as most Sundays, with Mass. The kids were on their "best-special-day" behavior and it was such a blessing to celebrate our family in the presence of our very favorite dad. He doesn't get nearly the praise he deserves. It's nice that all the dads at Mass were recognized and blessed.
After Mass we made a quick change, packed a picnic and headed to a local park for Bach, Beethoven and brunch. The day could not be more perfect weather-wise and it was so nice to share some time with two families who are so dear to us. I came to a realization the other day...just because our family "looks" like another family, that family may be worlds away from what we value and believe. Ultimately, the values and beliefs are so much more important than how many kids they have or where they live. We are so blessed to have found some families who seem to work so well with our own.
Wishing all of you a very blessed Father's Day!
"Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen."
