What Dads Do

This one is from a grateful wife and mother:
My husband is the father of three children currently 21, 19 and 17. He is also their hero. He hasn't done anything that this world considers heroic yet they have him on a pedastal.
He has coached all of them in soccer since 4th grade and continues to coach in the youngest one's high school.
He jogs with them to the park where they will play pick up games.
He does work around the house when needed and takes out the trash, does the yardwork, pays the bills and occasionaly makes supper.
He helps with their homework when asked.
He does not miss a recital, game or function that they are participating in.
He lets them know when he is proud or disappointed in them.
He loves them unconditionally.
He does not give them everything they ask for.
He says "no" to inappropriate television and movies.
He listens to them.
He leads by example.
He expects them to do their best.
He eyes tear up when they graduate.
He gives them big hugs.
He prays with them.
He prays for them.
and he is a wonderful husband.
We've been married for 25 years and I am so blessed to have him in my life.
