Father's Day

My heart is torn a little tonight. I suppose that on a day that focuses on fathers it's only natural to think about Joey. Perhaps it's because we just finished watching a video from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints about an amazing father. You can watch it here--grab a tissue or two. It's called "A Father Indeed."

Watching Brett watch it kills me because I know he's mourning the loss of a father/son relationship. All he wanted and wants is to be a dad to his kids. Including Joey. I won't go into details to protect his feelings, but I know the ache is so big for him without Joey. They were the best of friends--truly. They really loved each other in that special father/son way that seems so magical and so tangible.

So even though Brett doesn't read this blog, I think it's important to state what an amazing father I find him to be. He promised he would take care of us, and he has--in so many ways. And I find him to be the greatest Dad that I know!! Happy Father's Day to all those dads out there. There isn't a more noble profession out there for a good man!


  1. So sorry for the pain you guys are feeling. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I don't have enough words in English to express how I feel when I read your posts about Joey, so touching... SO beautiful.

    This layout is perfect.

  3. I have 3 children of my own and I ache reading this.....you are amazing and so strong. I don't know you yet I would love nothing more than to give you and your husband a big hug!
    God bless your family!

  4. I hope you had a good father's day even with the longing thoughts of Joey. I'm sure he spent the day with you, watching over you in his special way. ((Hugs))

  5. Oh Jen, I always think of your family on days like this. The ache that never goes away, the far off look in your eyes. Joey was so much more than his earthly body. He is a bigger spirit and a huge kind soul. Both of which will ALWAYS be with you.

    Hugs to all
