Happy Father's Day

Today it is Father's Day in Australia.

What a wonderful thing fathers are!  I, myself, have a splendid Dad with whom I enjoying hanging out.  He's good to talk to, supportive, helpful, funny, strong and really loves my Mom and their children.  But most importantly, he's faithful to God and clings to His promises.

I have married an equally splendid man with wonderful attributes and I'm chuffed to have given him a son, so that he gets to celebrate Father's Day.  It's been incredible watching Adrian grow as a father to our little one: more patient, more kind, more gentle, more tired, more loving.

Happy Father's Day to the dads out there.  Know that you are appreciated and loved, even if your children don't always say it.


  1. Happy belated Father's day Adrian! Sorry I missed it, I'm not up on all of your holidays (those not corresponding to our NA dates). I'm glad that we get to celebrate our dads twice now, with NA holidays AND Aus ones too! (That must go for moms too, does it?)

    I'm glad you're, would you like to translate? ;)

  2. Chuffed would be a good thing--like happy, proud, pleased, etc., (Or if you use google, then you might find, before the urban definition, that it is the past tense verb of chuff, which is regular making of a sound of a steam engine on a train--or something like that.)

    Happy Australian Father's Day
