A Father's Day Favorite Reposted

In thinking about Father's Day this year, I can't help but reflect on sons as much as fathers. My husband is a retired Marine. A few years ago, our son thought he'd follow his father's footsteps right into the Corps. Interestingly, neither my husband, or myself, thought the Marine Corps was a good fit for Jonathan. Before he signed on the dotted line, he realized that also and went back to college instead.

Fast forward several years and across a continent. Jonathan never lost that desire to follow in his father's footsteps--or in this case, the footsteps of his grandfathers. My father, my stepfather, and my husband's father were all in the Air Force. We learned this week that Jonathan was accepted into the public affairs division of the Air Force and will be heading to basic training in October.

So today, as I thank my husband for being such a good role model to our children, I'm also looking forward to the day Jonathan becomes a father. The following is a Father's Day card I made for BassMan back in 2005. I think it bears reposting.

I love when our progeny find something in us worth following. Jonathan has had great models, no doubt, and through that he will always be successful. Lovely card and post, Carolyn.
