what a good man

ray is so good to us. he is a wonderful father. he loves them so much. he wants to give them so much more than what we can give them. i love this picture because you can see how happy he is when he is with his children and how happy they are when they are with him. there are kids that get a lot--toys, clothes, ipods, computers, etc.--our kids get hugs, kisses, and our prayers everyday. our kids are happy. they have a daddy that pays attention to them. just look at this picture--they're happy.

as a husband, he is just so great. he treats me so good. he listens to me even when he doesn't feel like talking. he is patient with me. he puts up with me when i throw my baby fits. i can tell he loves me. i also get hugs and kisses everyday. he told me he wants to give me much more but i am so happy, what more could he give me? i know he is feeling discouraged about his books being rejected. i know it will happen soon. i pray almost everday for him. God is so good and i just know He will answer this prayer. ray is so talented. i try so hard to encourage him when he gets the rejection letters. i tell him it's in God's timing and He is sending the perfect agent for you. sometimes, though, i get discourage and that is when it is the hardest to encourage. i do believe God will give us this request--i can feel it in my heart when i pray.

ray, you are a wonderful husband and father. don't let anyone or anything get you down. we love you so much. and one more thing that is so great about you is that you always keep your word to the children and to me. wasn't there a promise about a back rub?

more booboo questions

one day afterwork, brooke asked me "papa told me i didn't have booboos. do i have booboos, mama?"

i said "well...not yet but you will grow them later. but because you are a girl, you still have to cover up."

her response "ok"


we watched a movie called Nanny McPhee. it was a very cool movie about this father who couldn't manage his kids so he would hire a nanny. btw, the mom passed away. anyway, the kids would drive all the nannies away until this one nanny came along. she looked like a witch and had magical powers. she was tough on the kids but in the end the kids weren't brats anymore.

the night we watched this movie i told the kids to brush their teeth. paige told me to wait. i gave her a few minutes then said "paige, go brush your teeth".

"no, mama, i want to finish this."
"go brush your teeth or i will call nanny mcphee"
"no, no wait. you don't know her number."
"oh, yes i do. 755-2594"
paige ran into the bathroom to brush her teeth. i went outside to talk to ray. the door opened and it was paige. she was crying and said "mama, did you answer the phone?"
i asked "answer the phone?"
"did you call her? did you call nanny mcphee?"
i gave her a big hug and told her nanny mcphee isn't real. i was joking.

9 years Anniversary

Ray and I started dating almost 11 yrs ago. We’ll be married for 9 yrs tomorrow. 11 yrs is a long time but it feels like only a few days. I was a single mom when we met. I had made many ugly decisions and have very dark secrets. He took Chantze in as his own and he doesn’t care about my past. He is a wonderful father to all 3 of his daughters and his son. He is a wonderful husband. He tells me I am beautiful all the time. He takes care of me. Scrapes my car window in the winter and drives because he knows how much I hate driving. He doesn’t care that I am a terrible housewife. He is fun, talented and very smart. He makes me very happy. I love him so much. Ray gives me something that no one else can—a love that can only be satisfied by him. Happy Anniversary, baby!
