Erin and I will celebrate our fourth anniversary today. I am hoping for some sort of Jell-O dessert to celebrate. If I could, I would shout about my love and gratitude for her from the rooftops of the city.
I was not courageous until I met my wife. I had many dreams and plans that were either completely shelved or were in the category of next year I am going to . . . Out of lack of support, fear and being comfortably miserable right where I was, there was only talking never action. It is because of the love and support of Erin that I write this blog, that I call myself a writer, that I have accomplished many of my dreams and of course that I get to be a stay-at-home dad.
Through Erin I have learned that not everything has to be perfect and sometimes, in fact, perfect is wrong. With her support, I have looked deep into myself and discovered the true me that had been hiding all those years. I am finally unafraid, no longer worried about ridicule or judgment. With Erin I have learned that dreams come true, you just need to be a little patient and have a little faith to get you there.
I may be a smart man for marrying a doctor but I am a lucky man for having such an amazing, supportive and encouraging wife.
