It’s been forever since my last post. I didn’t intend to stop posting but somewhere along the way I got to the point where I didn’t feel as though I had much to say. (Insert “comment about how I promise to post more” here.)

I do feel as though I should write tonight, however. Bethany and the boys are asleep and it’s been a busy couple of days with family and friends. I’m sitting in the dark downstairs with my laptop feeling blessed, knowing that I have people in my life who love and support me and are walking with me through life’s journey.

pandkBethany went to bed early. She deserved it after being almost non-stop since yesterday morning (I’m sure she’ll tell about her early morning Black Friday adventures on her blog). So that left me with the boys. Without over dramatizing the situation, I just had one of those “dad moments” where I looked at my kids and was overwhelmed with appreciation and thanksgiving for the blessing they are to me. There are a million and a half things I could be thankful for today.  I’m not even going to try to mention them all because if I tried, I’d end up leaving something out.

So tonight, before I head upstairs, I just thought I’d just mention my gratitude for a beautiful, supportive and loving wife and my two energetic, fun-loving, wild and crazy boys.
