To My Wife

I know it has been awhile since I've posted, but after Sarah's last post, I feel like I have something to say as well.


When people find out that my wife is studying business marketing they often ask me: "What is she going to do with that?" Which I proudly reply: "Be a mother." Some people do give me weird looks, but I don't care. What I do care about is that my kids have a mother to take care of them. And I'm very lucky to be married to such a woman.



Sarah, I am very grateful for a wife who understands the important role of women. I know in today's society that it is easy to get caught up in a lot of new trends that can, in ways, demoralize the role of women. I'm glad that you are not caught up in these trends. One of the major reasons I wanted to marry you is because I knew you would be a good mother. I knew you had an understanding of what really mattered in life. I knew that my job would most likely require that I be gone more than I would like and I needed someone to stay home and raise our family. So thank you, Sarah, for being that women in my life. I know that I'm not easy to deal with at times, but when it comes down to it, I love you. I love you for who you are and what you want to be. I wouldn't have it any other way.


P.S. That is not our baby, and no, Sarah is not pregnant.

Beautiful post, Jeff. And I thank you for loving our daughter and for wanting her to be the one to care for and nurture your children each and every day. It's nice that she knows you share her feelings on the subject. Good for both of you--and most important of all...good for your children!!

Nice post Jeff... I guess Kim and I must have done a few things right to have such great kids! Being a mom is awesome. I am still waiting for the "meanest mom award" I keep coming in as 1st runner up!

I like this new trend of announcing your pregnancy status at the end of each blog post. Now if you don't, everyone will start assuming something...
