To the Father I always wished for my Children...

I feel the need to express my love for the Father of my wonderful children...
"President [Howard W.] Hunter said: 'A man who holds the
priesthood regards the family as ordained of God. Your leadership of the
family is your most important and sacred responsibility. The family is the
most important unit in time and in eternity and, as such, transcends every
other interest in life' (Ensign, Nov. 1994, 50)."

Ian is very 'laid back' in many ways (he loves playing a good game of chess) but never in the responsibilities of his family. In fact this is one of the attributes that attracted me to him in the first place ( He is the Eldest of 8, with all this in tales) I love that he dates me every week - the best gift you can give your children is to love their mother! He councils with me regarding my callings,frustration and inspirations, He makes me laugh, helps me cry and encourages me to follow my dreams. He is a hard worker, a great example and a good teacher. (Always taking opportunities to make those teaching moments with the children) I am grateful for such a man in my life....and more grateful that he is mine for ETERNITY! - I love you Ian

My dear husband truly understands this principle, for this I am grateful.
