Happy Mother's Day

I have had the awesome privilege of getting to sit back and watch my wife, my best friend, my better half - blossom in to an amazing mother! The road to where we sit today has been full of some unexpected bumps - but one thing has stayed consistent from the start - God made Laura to be a mom! And even though we fought Him for a bit and thought we knew what was best - He eventually won and He led us to a place far better than what we could have ever imagined.

And there - in that place - thousands of miles away from anything comfortable or normal - a spark was lit in a mom that hasn't stopped burning yet. And the upward hugs from Meron are there to prove it! Truth be told - I believe with all my heart that Brighton is storing up a heavenly handful of hugs to shower on his mom when we all finally get to be together. That's a sight I can't wait to see.

Laura - you are one amazing mommy! Your family loves the heck out of you and we just hope you know how much you mean to us! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY LAURA(and all the moms out there selflessly doing the same thing Laura does - knocking it out the park in the mom category).
