This is my first post in months I believe. I am still up at 1:30am, and am done working on my paper for the night. For some reason I am not going immediately to bed. I just wanted to say there are a few things I am thankful for this year:
Stephanie - my wife, my best friend, and the best mother I could have ever hoped to raise a family with.
Hope - We named her Hope because she was created and born at a time when we were sustained by hope in God and his promises. Hope has now brought immeasurable joy to my soul. No matter how my day has been, one smile from her and I'm happy. I love being her dad, and am enjoying every smile, cry, diaper change, hug, laugh, kiss goodnight, evening prayer, song, story, and new thing she does. I just wish I could spend more time with her. Thank you Lord.
Here is a thoughtful look from Hope, in honor of finals week.
