This picture was one of my favorites. We had just arrived home and I was carrying in Clairvaux and turned to see you playing and talking with Damaris in her car seat. Her laughter could be heard through the home. My favorite thing about our marriage is how much we enjoy our children together. My mom always says to me, "I don't know two people who mutually enjoy and delight in their children like you and John."
|Not intended to be a picture of BUNS, just cute that you were talking to Damaris.|

We have days that we look at each other and flash the "five more minutes" sign because they are almost in bed. We have days that life is just dull and ordinary, but as we always say that the inner peace that God grants to us each night is irreplaceable. You are a perfect husband and father.
Not in the world's "PERFECT" sense, but perfect that you know God made you and made you for heaven. One of my favorite lines from Les Miserables "She has the Lord. He is her father. And you're his creation. In his eyes, you have never been anything but an innocent and... beautiful woman."
How does this fit here? I know you know God is your father in heaven and you are His creation. You are quick to apologize and to forget. You are first to serve. If I hope to imitate one of the many traits your parents taught you, I hope to imitate this one the most.
