time away

its always wonderful to get away
its hard not to want to make vacation last forever
what comes easy for me is being a dad
and that job is right here at home
so even when its hard to do, I will push the vacation into its proper place
and focus on getting Miss Hannah though her next project for school
( I did really well on this morning's assignment)
and on helping Jared make sound decisions for his educational future.
I never wanted fathering to be easy
its a great gig
if it were easy, every man would be doing it.
They are not ( witness the front page of every local paper)
whatever my weaknesses: I am Dad
and I am good at it.

design by Barbara, of "trying to catch up" blog fame and host to BlogOlympics. she is a wonder! The banner picture is my own - a sunrise in my front yard in winter.
thanks Ragnar, who gave you your name?

I love this entry, David. As a Dad, it moved me, and I wish other fathers would read your words and let the spirit of this entry help them become better fathers.

Michele would absolutely agree.
