Because She Needs to Know
posted by Ryan
Kelly does most of the writing around this blog, but I make the occasional appearance when I feel I have something to add.
For those of you who are lucky enough to know Kelly personally you already know all the things I am about to write. For everyone else, this is who Kelly is plain and simple. As I type this, Bennett is banging on his crib (his way of calling for me to come get him). I don’t want to walk up those stairs to get him because that means my day officially begins. At full speed. I’m sure Kelly has these thoughts, and yet she does these little things every day. Sacrificing her needs because the needs of our two amazing children need to be met. I often wonder why God gave us such amazing children, but then I think to the root of that thought and realize that God gave me a strong, independent, loving, smart, funny, thoughtful, nurturing, beautiful woman that has been the one who has guided my children to the place they are. My kids are great because Kelly is who she is. God knew all this.
Looking back at these last 3 and a half years of children, I see a woman who has grown in so many ways. You took on a challenge that you didn’t know you could pull off. I know you doubt yourself. I know you have fears. I know you feel inadequate, but I want you to know that I could not have hand-picked a better woman to raise our children. God knew what he was doing and I thank Him for you I admire you. I want to be like you. I love you.
