10 Things I Love About Being A Dad

Wayne —  October 15, 2010 — 5 Comments

It’s time for a simple post.  Simple to read, and more importantly simple to write.  God has blessed me abundantly in my life.  One area is as a Dad.  I love being a Dad.  It is frustrating at times, and there are moments when I wonder whether I am really cut out for it, but when push comes to shove, I really like being a Dad.  The hardest part of this post was limiting the list to just ten items.  Here’s my list:

  1. Hugs and kisses after a long day at work, or before bedtime, or just because.
  2. The cute things they say that make you smile from ear to ear.
  3. When God speaks through them into my life.
  4. Hearing “I love you Daddy.”
  5. Seeing their face when they open that present that they really want.
  6. Having the opportunity to model God the father in their lives.
  7. Cuddling on the couch and watching a movie.
  8. Watching them grow and learn.
  9. Listening to their stories.
  10. Seeing the world through their eyes.
