Happy Father's Day to all the great dads out there! We had a wonderful weekend and I hope yall did too.
All last week I worked on two things: writing my blog about bullying and getting all the Father's Day presents ready. The two may not seem to go hand in hand, but on this particular Father's Day, they do.
See, I was bullied in high school and I decided to share my experience in hopes of reaching someone who really needed to hear my story.The part where I talk about how it doesn't get better after high school because adults can be petty also, resonated with me.
The difference in getting bullied as an adult is your skin is thicker. You learn to take it with a grain of salt because there is always more to the story they are creating about you as well as their motive behind it.
My husband is going through this right now and even though he endures it every single day, he never wavers from the strong, loving, giving, selfless man he is.
I am not sure I could go through what he goes through on a constant basis and not let it change me.
I would like to shed some light on what it is like in our household. Just to give you a better perspective of this man who some adults say puts on a political show when he is out in public. When he hugs you, tells you happy birthday, asks about your family, or goes out of his way to support your cause, I am here to tell you, that is not a political act.
Every single night or day that we are home, he cooks a full course meal for me and our family, bathes our son and is constantly helping me with ANYTHING around the house. I never have to go to the grocery store and when he does, he calls my mom to see if she needs anything as well.
He makes me coffee every morning even if he is running late, pours it in my cup, helps me get Tripp dressed and loads the car for me.
When I wake up in the morning, he drops what he is doing, gives me a hug, and tells me good morning.
He cooks dinner for my parents every time he cooks dinner so they don't have to.
If any of you are going through something, he is always telling me how worried he is about you and how he wants to reach out.
If I am sick, he waits on me hand and foot and makes sure I am better.
He goes out of his way on any occasion, and sometimes for no reason, to make sure I feel loved and appreciated.
When I am at work, I am so busy during the day I never get to take a lunch break and he always shows up with lunch for me even when I don't ask him to.
No, he is not perfect, but he is an amazing father, husband, best friend and I, along with Marion County, are lucky to have him.
Happy Father's Day, Leward, you deserve to be celebrated every day!
