If you are a father and you like it.



I was driving alone in the car today listing to my music really loud. 
 As you may or may not have known already,
I really, really like Brandon Flower's new album.
So, I was driving listing to his romantic words and thinking
of Mr. Nielson, and how much I love him and how
thankful I am that he loves me with all of his heart-and the children too.

So there I was, thinking of Mr. Nielson and remembering
earlier that day when he tenderly hugged each of the children goodbye for school.
I thought of him picking out the raisins in Nicholas's cereal bowl.
(Sometimes we add it to the morning oatmeal- and Nicholas hates when we do).
I thought about the way he loves me, and treats me like I am the most
beautiful, wonderful, and sweetest girl in the world
- even when I know I am not.

The thought of Mr. Nielson holding our new baby girl in a matter of weeks
gives me that tingly feeling in my stomach. The kind I got when he kissed
me for the first time in my Mom's car 11 1/2 years ago.
It is so attractive to see a man who loves being a father!


I am grateful for all the men in the world who are fathers
 and who are committed to their children and wife.
They are involved in family life, they honor God, play, teach, and love.
That's my Mr. Nielson, and I am eternally grateful.

{PS...Speaking of Brandon Flowers- he has three children.
Watch this cool video of him}
