Uncle JW and My Daddy

Growing up there were several men in my life I was blessed to know and love.
Two of the men that I admire and love, my Daddy and his brother my Uncle JW.
My Daddy always has a way of making everything OK and making us feel safe. Standing in the face of danger, we would never know we were. He is everything to our family. My Hero, and I will always be Daddy's little girl.
That is true for my Uncle JW as well. A man of strength and integrity I adore him and have my whole life. I get giddy at the thought of seeing him and his big bear hugs.
He came to my side the moment he found out that I was in the hospital 2 months early with my first child. My parents were not able to get there right away, but he was. He stayed until the Princess came into this world and all were safe and resting.
As children he always had the four wheelers washed, gassed and ready for us to ride when we got there. He never fussed at the fact that we got them stuck in mud 3 ft deep, just laughed at us and teased us about getting his clean four wheelers dirty.
When I was on the road while in college and had car trouble, he came to my rescue ( my parents were living two states away at the time) again teasing me by getting out with a saw and telling me to give him my foot he could fix that jeep. LOL
These two are truly men among men.

So it warms my heart when I get to see those two together and having fun. They did that this week. They caught some pretty awesome fish in the process. See it here in pictures!
