Building on what others write

My sweet wife has just posted some very well written words about our son Gavin. I will most likely write about him later this week, but for now all I can say is that I agree with everything she said, and I too love Gavin and appreciate him, even if he drives me crazy sometimes.

However, I would like to build on my wife's post in a slightly different direction: isn't she wonderful? Seriously, go read her post if you haven't already - she is amazing. I love her more than I can say. She is a marvelous wife and mother and my best friend. I can honestly say that we have never really had a fight between us. We've disagreed occasionally, but never for long and never to the point where we yelled or stayed mad for more than an hour or so. If you take into consideration who I am and what I am like, that is pretty darned remarkable and a marvelous testament to how patient she is with me.

To list all the ways she blesses my life, my kids lives and the lives of everyone who knows her is just not possible. I watch the hand of the Lord in our lives every day as I watch my wife as she serves everyone around her. There is no greater blessing that I could have asked for in this life than to have Marci as my wife and companion.
