Life is crazy, right?

I have three kids. They are everything to me. I grew up wanting to some day have kids. That’s something I thought that I could be proud of, and share my life with and all the adventures that comes with.

There are obviously hard days. Days that you wish you could just come home and lie down, and not think of anything else than just pull some Z’s. Kids are amazing, wonderful and perfect gifts that come wrapped up in imperfect bodies with a tendency to break things and resemble terrorists. But really, they’re great!

Especially nights like this one, where you’ve had a long day, and those Z’s are so compelling and having a little ice cream sounds delicious just before bed, but that’s not possible until they’re pulling the Z’s first, and you draw them close to you and feel their warmth as they draw in a big yawn and fall asleep in your arms.

I live for moments like that. That’s unchanged.

I also have the world’s most amazing wife – she takes care of the kids during the day, and she’s a saint, because I don’t know how she does it, couped up in the house all day. She is amazing at what she does, and I’m lucky to have her in my life.

What has changed though?

Putting things into perspective, which is a definite must; not much really. I love my family, my kids, my life. We all have things that we wish we could do, and things we regret, but I think it would be difficult for me to say that I would do it any differently. I do wish that I’d met my wife sooner – that’s something I would definitely say I could wish. And not because I think she will read this. (Though, brownie points, hun?)

My self-talk is mostly positive. I do find it hard to find moments to express myself though, which is the reason that I wanted to start this blog. There’s a lot of things I’d like to talk about – I’m just not certain how or when I will do all of that. Some day.

Maybe you’ll join me?

If not, that’s okay too.

For now, I want you to know that Jesus loves you.
