Behold: January 22

Posted: January 23, 2010 in Uncategorized

The bemoan came first, the behold comes second.  But they are definitely intertwined in so many ways.

Behold:  my mom.  She gave me time, conversation, respect and – ultimately – so much security.  She set the standard for the way you might want to walk your girl to school and talk about her grades and her dates and her fears.  It wasn’t modeled for her, she just figured it out.  She did and she still does.

I am who I am because she and my dad invested just about everything into  three girls who were undoubtedly long shots.

Thanks, dear parents.  You’re a lot like Jesus, you know?
