Almost Heaven

These are my favorite people on the planet. My kids. Individually and collectively they own a big piece of my heart.

I was lucky enough to spend an entire weekend with all three of them this past weekend. The boys and I went to visit my daughter at school and I must say that I don't remember having such a fun filled, fulfilling weekend in a long, long time. It was wonderful just being in the presence of their smiles, their voices, their personalities and their complete and utter enjoyment of each other. I felt like the richest man alive in their midst. And to be their dad? I don't suppose I'll ever find words that begin to describe how that feels. I guess what I experienced-what we all experienced-was a glimpse of what heaven must be like.

I think I'm gonna like heaven.

These three kids will be happier, healthier, more Godly human beings because you're their father. We should all be so blessed. :)

I understand 100%. My kids have brought more joy into my life than anything else on this earth. I can't imagine what life would have been like if I'd never had them.

We are blessed...
