BIRTHDAY PRESENT


Dearest……….
“I” is not a word that you
say very often. You’re
humble. You’re strong. You
don’t ask for much. In fact,
to ask for a simple glass of
water is upsetting; you
want to get it on your own.
You don’t want to
inconvenience others. It’s
too
much. I do get it. You are
tired of being cared for.
You are tired of asking. I
do
all the running around and
as crazy as it may sound to
some, you want that. So
I can have a rest. If you
could have anything for
your birthday, I bet you
would
want to care for others –
to do the giving for a
change. An extravagant
vacation
is not what you want most.
Sure, it sounds great. But
you’d settle for much less;
to have life’s simple
pleasures. To just enjoy
the many things that most
people
take for granted; things
you probably took for
granted yourself, before.
And even
my ignorance existed for
years. Now we know better.
Now we can show our
boys a better way to view
the world. We can teach
them to enjoy every
moment,
to make the most of every
occasion, to experience life
to its fullest, and to give.
School doesn’t teach you
those things. Watching it
lived out everyday does;
each
and everyday, in a
classroom led by mommy
and daddy. Even if all we’re
able
to accomplish in this life is
to raise two good boys, it
will have been worth it. But
go tell that to the world.
And they’ll laugh.
“Rubbish!” is what they’ll
say, “get
on with your life.” But what
they don’t understand is
that this is our life. We had
a different plan, but it
didn’t work out. I know
something better is in store
for us. A
date set by God; a path not
entirely clear at the
moment, but that will leave
us
with more blessings than
we could ever imagine.
That’s my prayer and that
is
my hope. One day very
soon, you and I will
experience a joy beyond
your
husband Eddie’s wildest
imagination.
You deserve it. I hope and
pray you will get it.
Yours loving………
