X 7.13.14 (World Cup Day)
Dedicated to two amazing friends: Addie and Dustin Wescott
My grandfather survived his trip to the hospital on the morning of July 10. This alone was a tremendous birthday gift. He’s not out of the woods, but there is some cause for hope. But, I had even more to celebrate and be grateful for this year. I’ll try to hit the highlights within the next three mini-posts.
I woke up around 6AM on my birthday snuggling with my two year old son in the nursery. I walked into the master bedroom where my wife and 2 month old were already awake. Lindsay jokingly prompted Silas to “Say Happy Birthday to Papa,” and as if on cue, he ripped an audible toot.
Waking up as a father of two was the best way I’ve ever woken up on my birthday. I ended up only working a half day and getting to enjoy some beautiful summer weather with the three people I love most.
