A Father's Love........

 Tim Nischan(2) The King and Queen (2010)

My friend's husband took these pictures during the homecoming festivities Friday night, and they make me smile every time I look at them.

Tim loves our boys so much, and the pain of losing Nick has been almost unbearable for him.  See, Tim and Nick were the biggest football buddies.  They watched every game together, talked stats together, and played fantasy football together.   In the off season, they followed players and teams through drafts and recruiting.  While life will never, ever be the same for any of us, I think the void has been amplified for Tim because of the loss of his kindred-spirited little man.

So seeing Tim's face beaming with joy as he watches Erich and Jena receive their awards makes my heart sing.

Thank you, God, for being the Almighty Joy-Giver.

Thank you for loving us with a deep abiding Father's love,

How wonderful is that? As parents we always think are kids are great, but isn't cool when others think they are great as well? Who knew that that little boy running around in his underwear during D-Group would turn into such a great guy! What a blessing!!!
