Thankful Thursday


Today I'm thankful for my sweet son-in-law, Erick.  Not only is he a good provider, but he's also a great husband and father.  This weekend he is sending his wife on a trip to visit her old college roommate, for a much needed break, while he stays behind  to care for a busy five year old son and a two year old daughter with special needs. 

    While my daughter is shopping and getting a pedicure, he will be home changing diapers, inserting feeding tubes and playing "cowboy".  He will give baths, have devotionals and stay up nights with a crying two year old who's having a seizure.  He'll do all of this with a patient and kind spirit.

   Since entering our lives ten years ago, we have watched Erick grow into a mature, Godly man who provides a secure and happy home for his wife and children.  He has become the man he is through his love of the Lord and because of Godly parents who set a wonderful example for him.

  Erick's mother once told me that when he was a high school senior, he was asked what his goal was and he replied, "to be a good father".  He's achieved this goal along with being a great husband, son and son-in-law! 

   We love you and appreciate you, Erick.  What a great blessing you are!

  1. I love it when I read where an "in-law" is really a son or daughter. That's the way we feel about our children's choices. Thanks for sharing and the well deserved "brag" on a lovely Christian man!
