How do I count the ways I love thee? These two pictures of you holding Kapaun and me holding Kapaun summarize our mutual shared loved and mission. Our children. You know I am crazy about you, but the love I have only multiplies after the births of each of our children. My favorite hospital memories shared between us are the moment when the baby is born and how we look at each other and each day you come up to see me after having been at home helping with the other kids. I am sure it is the grace of the moment, but I love seeing you walk around the curtain and how you smile at me. I bask in the admiration and esteem you have for mothers and their work, but pridefully admit that I love that you shower me with that deep affection.
