These guys. That pretty much sums up how I have spent the last 3+ years since my last post. They are my greatest blessing. Warrens like being busy. And that we have been! Lucas is our sunshine and we delight in the gift of being his parents. We take the job God has entrusted us with seriously. It is our responsibility to instill in him a respect for all mankind. We teach him to not see race or status, and to treat every single person he comes into contact with from day to day with love, not matter what they’ve done, are doing or might do. And he is better at it than both Robert and myself. We learn so much from him. Because he actually does practice what we preach. It is humbling to be his mother. It is the greatest job I have ever had. And I am a different and markedly better person for it.
Now, Mr. Warren. This is the guy. My heart. He has seen me at my best. He has seen me at my worst. And he is still here. I can’t imagine this journey with anyone else. Who else could tolerate me? He was MADE for me. What an undeniable blessing! I can’t begin to imagine a more supportive husband. He is my calm, my safe place to go, and my therapist. I would not be where I am without him. And I wouldn’t want to be. He is a father who is invested. He and Luke spend many hours together alone when I am working late or extra days in the week, or am out of the state. And I never worry about them. I miss them, but I never worry. He is a fabulous father. He has never tired of the duties given to him by fatherhood and I am so grateful for that. Lucas is blessed, as well.
Well, I thought that this might be a good way to segway back into this. I’ve been gone for a bit. But this is cheap therapy 😉 So, I think I’ll give it another go.
Psalm 122:8 For the sake of my family and friends, I will say, “Peace be with you.”
Much love and many blessings,Amanda
