Yesterday was Fathers’ Day, but I received a present! My hubby, and father of our two wonderful [and exceptional] children decided to build a large, free-standing pergola in the center of our garden. I don’t know where the inspiration or motivation originated, but I am delighted. It will tie together so many other aspects of our country landscape, like a cherry-on-top or frosting-on-the-cake. My husband’s ability to build just about anything is one of the many things I am grateful for this year. Although I love the pergola, it is the builder who owns my heart. The pergola simply serves to remind me of the gift my husband is to his family.
God bless all Dads this Fathers’ Day. The father is the captain of the family ship, and too many families are sinking. Long may committed father’s reign at the home helm, steering, loving and supporting.
