Back on Fathers Day, someone in my family asked me something like "What is the most important thing you have learned about being a dad so far?"
My answer was (and is) that the most crucial part of fatherhood involves finding the right person to be a parent with. Honestly, at this stage of parenting it is all about mom, so choosing a bad mom would be a dad failure.
And I say all of that to say that I am blessed beyond all measure to have Renee as my wife, friend and Joshua's mom. The Lord works in strange ways to put people together, but part of the fun of faith is living within that an recognizing the beauty of it.
Today is our 9th wedding anniversary. As many of you can attest, I got the better deal in this marriage partnership.
Early in our marriage we decided that we would commit to staying married for 75 years. By then we will be able to decide if we really want to stick with it. I think I will ask for an extension on that to 95 years :-).
