Toughest Job You'll Ever Love

I remember an ad for the Red Cross some years back, that described working for them as "The Toughest Job You'll Ever Love". I believe that that statement all describes fatherhood as well. It can be, at times, a thankless job. But it has been the most amazing experiences of my life. Other times, trying to get through to my very willful children can be like leading a hopeless charge up hill (they get that from their mom).

My role as a dad doesn't afford me the time to pursue my hobbies, but I have been able to see my daughters pursue their interests and I wouldn't miss one minute of it.
So, I would like to wish every dad out there, especially mine, a sincere and heartfelt Happy Father's Day, you are all loved more than you realize.

Next on the Docket

I just finished reading Legends of the Space Marines and now I'm about to dive into the next book in the Space Marines Battles series. Helsreach by Aaron Dembski-Bowden recounts the Black Templars battle against an Ork Horde on the world of Helsreach. Should be a good one. I enjoyed the first book in the series, Rynn's World - so I'm guessing this one will be equally entertaining. But being a fanatic of all things Space Marines, that's no surprise. Who knows, maybe I'll find myself starting a Black Templar army.......just kidding.........maybe.......probably.....
