I slowly woke in my hospital bed to the sound of my husbands voice, a low, tender whisper, a tone he had never used with any single human 'til that day. I drifted in and out of sleep, but as I clung to consciousness, I focused my eyes across the room.
I knew a long time before we married that Matt was a special man, but on that day, watching him hold our son, I realized just what a treasure I have in him. There are some things you can know before you marry, you know the limit of their patience with you, you know it makes them angry when you mutter under your breath, but what you don't know, what you can never know, is what kind of a parent they will be.
Happy FIRST Father's Day Matthew!! I am so proud of you!
