Sweet Olivia

My friend Lurenda has asked that we all post about someone who has changed my life for the better.  This is in honor of her sweet Olivia who would have turned 3 this past Friday.  Her short life touched many, including me.  So, this is for you, Olivia.

I'd like to tell y'all about my sweet husband, Daniel.  He's brought so much to my life that I desperately needed and didn't even know that I wanted.  He has brought me friendship and love, wholeness and faithfulness.  He has brought me inspiration and has challenged me in ways that I couldn't imagine.  He is talented, witty, funny, insightful, smart, protective, strong, caring, sensitive, thoughtful, and big-hearted.  He is an amazing husband and incredible father.  He tolerates his increasingly neurotic wife, cares for his precious daughter, and sails the high seas of family dysfunction (mine & his) like a weathered sailor - cautious, determined, protective of his domain, but flexible to the waves.  I have learned so much from him and cherish his partnership and love.

Thanks Lu for asking us to acknowledge those we love.
