In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture which means LOVE to you!!
Love is an emotion of a strong affection and personal attachment.
Love is also said to be a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection.
Love may describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one’s self or animals.
After reading this I immediately thought of my husband and how his picture means Love to me.
Their real father doesn’t have that much to do with them, he never really has, my daughter was almost 6 and my son 3 when their step dad became a permanent part in their lives.
I cannot recall a time either one of my children referred to him as “step dad” from the beginning he has always been their Daddy.
He’s their Dad in every way except biologically.
He has always shown them respect, and treated them like his own flesh. He never raised a hand, except for the occasional threat of a spanking, which he rarely had to deliver.
He did discipline them on occasion when they were growing up, but only when deserved, and on those few occasions, they did deserve it. Not often, they were good kids mostly, but they had a few moments.
He is their dad, he’s not by blood, but that doesn’t matter. Both of our older children couldn’t be more grateful to have someone like him who helped them both with homework, took care of them when they were sick, took them both to every school event, took them fishing, taught them to drive,who was there for them, loved them etc. And to this day, even though they are both adults he is still there for them.
Brian‘s the world’s most laid back, gentle guy. I’ve only seen him get really angry once or twice and it was always more than justified.
He’s a quiet guy, but he’s always taught our children by example how to sacrifice your own needs for the good of those around you.
Each of my children adore him, several times they’ve expressed their gratitude for all he has done for them, stepping in when he didn’t have to do so.
God sometimes calls upon men to be fathers or dads who do not have to be fathers or dads.
I’m blessed and incredibly thankful mine answered the call choosing to love another’s children as his own.
Kindness, compassion, Love and affection was unselfishly shared with them from the very beginning, continuing his selfless acts for ailing
family members along with everyone else he encounters.
Brian is the essence of Love
