the best dad

Our local newspaper is having a contest for THE BEST DAD to be announced in the Father’s Day issue.  To enter, a child must write a short essay about why their dad is the best.  Once I showed Briggs the idea, he went right to work.  He ran out of ink shortly after beginning but it was so precious I kept it ‘as is’.  What I find particularly profound are the memories that children keep of very simple things.  It isn’t about the toys but about the moments.  The moments where we provide security, love, protection, laughter…

Even if Tim isn’t selected, he is certainly THE BEST DAD in his children’s eyes.
