I Love My Wife

First thing I want to say is that I love my wife, Yasmine, so much and I greatly appreciate all that she does for me and the boys. Second, I want to give a shout out to all the single parents out there. I try to do as much as I can with the boys and provide moral support for Yasmine, but the reality is I can’t do much. So at the end of the day it’s like she is a single mother of 2 and a care giver. So part of my quad experience has kind of felt like I’m a camera that is filming an all access reality tv show about a single mother. It’s hard because I literally have to sit here and watch my wife do all these things that I would normally do or help do. Seeing my life in this way has given me not only a greater appreciation for my wife’s strength, but what it takes to be a mother and even more so a single parent.

S/N: It is extremely hard for me to live life as a bystander. I’m a doer, always have been and always will be. Seeing my wife doing “man stuff” and not being able to do for my boys drives me crazy!

I have to get better, I have to get stronger!

    Had to catch up on your real honest, great, awesome, insipring blogs. After reading them I thought about a song I always hear in the car, relaxing at home and thought how much it moves me because it always makes me think of you. It’s a very prayerful song. The artist is Isarel Houghton, I think he’s the musical director for Pastor Joel Osten. Just wanted to share this. Here are the lyrics:
    Is not over, it’s not finished
    it’s not ending, it’s only the beginning
    when God is in it, all things are new,
    I know its darkest just before dawn
    this might be the hardest season you’ve experienced
    I know it hurts, it won’t be too long
    cause your closer than you think you are
    closer than you’ve been before
    so look to the sky, help is on the way
    something is moving, turning around
    seasons are changing, everything is different now
    here comes the sun, piercing the clouds
    your closer than you think you are
    closer than you’ve been before
    so look to the sky, look to the sky
    help is on the way, help is on the way
    our God is faithful, faithful to say
    It’s not over, it’s not finished
    it’s not ending, it’s only the beginning
    it’s not over, it’s not finished
    it not ending, it’s only the beginning
    when God is in it
