Being a dad has surpassed all my expectations and preparations. And even with my second son, it did not get any easier. However the ironic thing about this experience is that I would never exchange being a dad for anything in this world. Just look at the their smiles:
In days where I feel down and tired, I just take one look at them, and my strength is quickly renewed. Seeing their eyes light up when we pass by cars, trucks, pickups with a rear bike rack, and ofcourse their favorite train – is more than enough to keep me going. I know even more challenges await in the future but I push on for their sake, and I am glad that I am never alone because we all have our heavenly Father watching over us.
