I was fully prepared to listen to a sermon this morning at church regarding what it means to be a great father. I am lucky enough to have a great Dad and several great father-figures in my life, so I felt like I knew how the message was going to go. Let's just say I was pleasantly surprised!
As always, I was searching for a seat while the choir was singing their first song. Since I didn't know it (sorry, but I'm an old-fashioned hymn kind of girl!), I found myself looking through the bulletin to check out what was going on in the church. Guess how excited I got when I read that Patrick Henry Hughes was the guest speaker! Some know him from seeing him on Extreme Home Makeover, ESPN, Oprah, Ellen or have simply heard about his physical limitations. Although he would never call them disabilities, but "abilities".
To say that my heart was happy and full when I left church this morning is an understatement. It doesn't take much to realize just how lucky and blessed we really are.
