Father’s Day is fast approaching! I love getting to celebrate my hubby. He amazes me with his intuition, and love for teaching his children. I am hoping to put together some of Josh’s favorite things to spoil him on Father’s Day. Last year we made him cards and took him to a water park. This year I wanted to capture this time of his life with an interview.
First a bit about Josh aka “Daddy”. He has been an entrepreneur for the last 10+ years. Currently he owns his own advertising and mobile agency. In just a few months we will be married for 13 years (and counting). He loves to run and study other successful people. Now onto the interview.
What is your favorite thing about being a dad?
Josh: Do I have to narrow it down to one thing?
Me: Yes, just a few things… if you can.
Josh: I like a lot of things about being a dad. Probably the most being a leader, teach them new things in life and watching them grow. Challenging them to grow. Just putting better people into society. Knowing that not just through them, and their future generations, but to help to create a better society. Knowing that I am putting better people into this life. Doing a job that… I don’t want to say that… My parents did a good job, but doing the very best that I can to put the best people, kids, into society. That they will then pass that down to their generations. It’s a huge responsibility. I love being a husband. I think that being a husband and a wife a big thing. Seeing two parents in a household is very important. I love everything about being a dad. I don’t think their is one thing I don’t like. It is always challenging, when you have 3 very intelligent kids that are going to push you. It builds character, they get to watch me be a dad. They are going to get to learn everything that I am doing.
Me: What is your favorite memory so far?
Josh: That is tough!
Me: Narrow it down please mr. Windy, LOL!
Josh: For each one of the kids?
Me: Something that stands out in your mind? Doesn’t have to be each one of them.
Josh: I think going to wrestling tournaments. Experiencing victories and a few losses as a family. Not just as an individual. To watch them grow.
Me: It’s a learning experience for all.
Josh: It is a learning experience for all. That is probably my most fun experience.
Me: What is something you hope to instill in your children?
Josh: Hard work, integrity and being loyal. Wanting to be a leader and to teach other to be successful as well.
Me: To be a service to people.
Josh: Yes, service encompasses so much. So yes, a service.
Me:What is one of your proudest moments being a father?
Josh: The proudest moment for me is knowing they can come to me and talk to me. That they tell me they love me and be open. It’s every day. Watching them grow and knowing they can come to me with anything.
Me: Do you have anything you want to add about being a dad?
Josh: It’s important. We have a fatherless society today. It’s extremely important, we see the goes results of what goes on having a fatherless society. I think everything negative is tied to fatherlessness. Also it is such a biblical thing, I’m not saying in general, or every father, is not present, because their are a lot of fathers that are. They work hard, they do a good job, but as a whole, I think we are missing out on that element of a dad being in the household. Being a dad also means being a good husband, and I feel like that is something that our society is losing. We have got to rebuild. It’s an important job. I could go on forever about being a dad, (smiles) and what it means to me. Those are just a few things.
I adore that he has such passion about his kiddos. Not only about our children, but about our future grandchildren and great grandchildren. Yep, we look that far ahead. Creating generational blessings is our goal.
So glad I am able to capture this. Hope you shower the daddy in your life with lots of love.
