Today is my wife’s birthday. In light of the birth and life of CJ within the past month, I’m so blessed to be the husband of such a beautiful woman who has transformed into a wonderful mother. She has endured much, and continues to grow and sacrifice for the love of our family.
At work, many coworkers ask me how many times I normally wake up during the night to take care of CJ. To their surprise, I tell them that I’m able to sleep through the night because my wife allows me to sleep while she gets up for all of CJ’s feedings. It’s extremely difficult to endure such a night, especially five in a row, in which obtaining a full REM cycle calls for praise and joy. I do not deserve such love.
I am constantly amazed at the life the Lord has set before, for I could not have asked for or imaged to be blessed with my lovely wife and cute son. Happy Birthday, Honey. I love you. 🙂
