Happy Mother's Day Linds

I'm usually not inclined to post a blog, but wanted to express to my sweet wife how much I love her. She writes so many nice things about me on this blog, so I figured that it was my turn. This Mothers day has caused me to reflect even more about the things for which I'm most grateful. I realize today that she is truly the source of all my happiness. The gift I gave her today and the breakfast I made this morning seemed to fall short of expressing my true feelings. As I sit here writing this, I find it difficult to express how lucky I am to have found my best friend as my eternal companion. I'm so grateful for her selfless service to our little boys. I can't imagine the stress and patience that she must endure day after day dealing with the pulling, nagging, crying, pooping, etc. I don't know how she does it. I know that she feels inadequate at times, but I want her to know what a fantastic job I think she does. I'm so proud of the growth I've seen in her these 5 years we've been married. She cares so much about Drew and Cameron and puts her whole heart into teaching and being a perfect example to them. Linds, I hope you know how much I love you. I couldn't have asked for a better mother for our children, eternal companion and best friend.

What a pleasant surprise! Although I have never met you TJ, I can already tell that you two have a wonderful relationship. I'm sure that Lindsay is equally happy and blessed to have you in her life. : )
