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!
