My Sweetest Man



So sometimes I look at Mike and think about how lucky I am. He's so gentle and kind, and handsome, and loving, and a great dad. He's very good at giving of himself, even if it's not the most convenient for him. A couple days ago we got some snow, it wasn't too much, but the next day it was blowing around. So when Mike got home he went out and shoveled, and was patient enough to let Brooke come out and shovel with him. After a little bit I looked out the front window and didn't spot these two in the driveway. I looked over next door and caught them shoveling the next door neighbors driveway also. A little bit later, when I thought they should have been done and back inside, I looked outside again. What did I find? Brooke and Mike one house further down doing their driveway also. After finishing the first one, Brooke said to Mike "I want to do one more." I'm so grateful for his example of service to others. It really does follow you, and of course the children are picking up on it, even at 3 years old. I love you, Mike. I'm a lucky woman.

What a nice tribute to your husband! He's a good example to the children and neighbors and even has fun doing it!

He is a great guy! Mike's parents did a good job instilling virtues, you are doing the same with Brooke.

Yep, Mike is great! I remember joking with him a while back about his having a bass thumb for guitar and a bass thumb for fishing. Oh, and TAG! Check out my blog and respond, if you would.
