These figurines were Father's Day gifts from the kids. My family is precious to me. I see them as a wonderful gift from God. Through my family he has shown me the essence of love and life. I'm well pleased to see them smile and enjoy life, excel and achieve their goals. It moves me to tears of joy when they freely show love to others. I invest time in my family to insure that they know they are loved. Virtuous time, not money, bribes, or material things, but virtuous time solidifies my affirmations of love. Yes parenting always presents a challenge, but the gift of family is well worth over coming that challenge.
