THIS BOOK IS THE BEST LOVE STORY EVER TOTALLY a GREAT VALENTINE WIN
now for my annual love letter to my boy(he writes me one too)
happy Birthday Greg,
It seems like yesterday that you were born. funny how I cannot remember yesterday, but I can remember my nurse that February night, what she looked like and what she had on. I guess Those important Days and all their details Never leave you. I remember the over the top Excitement of having a BOY. I had always prayed I would have one of each. God answered that prayer. I also ask for the boy to be First, so he could take care of his sister. How true that would be many years later at such an important time in her life. There was a January day in 1999 that I saw you become the essence of Son, Brother and Uncle ALL in one day. Never had I been so PROUD of you.
I know this has been one of the hardest years of your Life. I think I already knew that, but you confirmed it to me in an email you wrote me recently by saying those exact words. Almost losing Dad, seeing him have to suffer to regain so much, seeing him helpless in some situations was enough to say it was the Hardest YEAR. Add to that some other problems, some I know and some I may not know…the best part is that I know you…(remember I have known you the longest) and you will get through this. This has been a Year when we have all learned who our real friends are. Its been a year you were able to reconnect with lots of old friends from dad’s earlier coaching days. we have been through Hard years before. And when at the time it seemed there was no way out, God made a way. I am trusting him to do that again for YOU. I know you are carrying a load. I know you are still worried about Dad. I know our record time trip to DALLAS on OCT 2, as we raced to Baylor, praying to find Dad alive, still Haunts you. I saw it in your face then and I still see it. Losing your Dad means different things to different people, but I know what it means to you. So along with your birthday, we have Dads recovery to CELEBRATE. You notice I am not mentioning your age as it would give a good hint at mine…so lets just stick to the story that I had you when I was 10. Since you are a Dad, you will understand it when I say I want to hurt people that hurt my BOY. I have had a running list all year and the same name appears on it over and over…
I am so proud of the husband you are. Dana IS BY FAR the best thing that EVER happened to you and please do not EVER FORGET IT. She is super LOW maintenance as opposed to me being HIGH MAINTENANCE. Low is easier. Never forget that. On the hard days, start your day counting your blessings….You have a GORGEOUS wife that loves you for just who you are….no changes required. That rarely happens….You have TWO wonderful healthy sons that adore you…..two nephews that think UNC is SO COOL, a sister that likes you on most days…..but will never forget THE relationship you had with Parker in his early years. I pray this will be the best year of your life…
I love you,
