A Place Of Safety


Even though my hubby never comes to my blog (I will have to print up this post for him ;-) I wanted to write him a thank-you. Since it is Fathers day, I have been thinking about the kind of father David to our girls. I was thinking how he is a place of safety for them. Both David and I know all to well the consequence of having fathers that are not a place of safety. The good side of this is we both know the importance of a loving and giving father. A father who builds up his children, a father who put his children’s needs first, a father who delights in his children and mostly a father who creates a safe place were a child can be themselves. David always makes his time with his family a priority, everything comes second. He plays, he listen, he sets boundaries and he loves unconditionally.

I want to thank you David for how hard you work for us, how you always make your time with the girls important, how hard you try and for being a places of safety for our girls (and me too) xoxoxo

Of Fly Catchers and hidden lakes.

Of sleeping lizards and morning dew.

It is of birdsong and misty dawns

and fleeced clouds floating in a still pool.

The waters ripple awake in the gathering morn.

The first water birds head out for the far shore.

That is sweet. Yes, print it for him, he needs to see it. My husband doesn't read my blog either, but I told him he had to, today and he was glad he did. I doubt if he'll become a regular though!

thanks for the kind thoughts and tell your nice husband happy fathers day too from Sugarwings and I!


Beautiful tribute! Love that thought:
Place of safety!
Such a blessing to have that in a world that offers little stability and safety!
Keep up the great job, David!
Blessings to your family!
Love from J&J


A very lovely way of expressing your sentiments. I'm sure that David is touched and honoured by knowing he's thought of as being a place of safety.


That is so very nice.
Hope you are having a great Father's Day!


What a lovely sentiment, what a lovely family.
Happy Fathers Day David.
