Gratitude

Just want to take a second to express some gratitude to my sweet wife. Tammy was up most of the night putting together valentines packages. These packages include candy, toys, books, pajamas and all sorts of goodies. She made these for our son's daycare class, for his grown-up sisters, for his cousins in Dallas, for his other cousins in Minnesota and for his family and friends back home in Des Moines, Iowa. She'll repeat this routine again at Easter, Halloween and Christmas. But that's not all. They get birthday cards and well wishes throughout the year.

And no one will say thank you. That always blows me away.

The thing is, she doesn't do these nice things for a thank you. She does them because in her heart it's the right thing to do. To show a gesture of kindness because she believes that's what GOD would want her to do.

So I say, THANK YOU TAMMY! I appreciate all you do.

(even though you think blogs are stupid)

Valentines are always special.

It's sad no one will ever know how much preparation went into them.
