Hubby as a Son and as a Dad

According to John, when he was a kid, he seldom had the opportunity to bond with his Dad because my FIL was always working. It was his Mom who was there for him 24/7 but despite that he respects and loves his Dad so much. He understood that his Dad had to earn a living to support them and for them to have a decent life.

As he grow older, he became very close to him. I can attest to that because even if when we were overseas, he would call Dad and talk to him for a long time. He always speaks very highly of him.
Now that we are back here in the mainland, we visit him almost everyday and talk to him on the phone several times a day. I could see how much my husband loves and adores his Dad because every thing that he does, he consults Dad and gets advice.

As a father, my husband makes sure that he spends quality time with our kids because he believes that it is extremely important for their growth. He is trying to be the best Dad for them.

This post is dedicated to my father-in-law and to my husband who both served in the military. We are very proud of you guys. Happy Memorial Day!

We look to our dads for character, to learn right from wrong. The value of work, dads so often by example. We as children look to them and so often see a quiet dignity. Giving the kids he can, he will always lead by example. He looks great in the suit!

Happy Memorial Day to you all. It's nice to see the three generations of Cottrill in a single photo- your FIL, John and EJ. They are all so similar in almost every way. As they say, the torch is passed on from one generation to another. There is no doubt that your FIL was a wonderful father to John and his siblings. And John is also a wonderful father to your kids and a wonderful husband to you as well. How blessed can you be with all these men and girl in your life? Thanks for the touching post. God bless you all always.

aww... very touching naman ang iyong post, ate rose... and it's highly visible naman - how much your kids adore their dads... parang napaka playful ni daddy john... Happy Memorial to you there!

By MelCole of PA said...

Wow, both of them served the military and until now they are still close to each other. Been watching lots of your pics, Rose and I noticed your FIL is always there. That is really good to have a husband who respects his father. The kids will do that to him as well.

Patti said...

Your husband learned a lot from his hard-working dad, I'm sure.

Nice post. Happy belated Memorial Day and Ruby Tuesday! I'm running late this week.

Bambie dear ★ said...

I know how close you are with your FIL.. kaya naman pala nagmilitary din si Sir Joops because he looks up to his dad. I won't be surprise if EJ decides to join military too.. Sa photos nyo palang, kitang kita na ang closeness ng mga kids sa Dad and grandpa nila.. Happy family =)

Have a nice weekend mwah
