My morning gratitude for:
- Shelley Goldy, one of my aunts. Happy birthday today! I am so glad that you have been part of Uncle Fred’s life and that you have raised awesome kids in Brittany and DJ. I have always admired how Fred and Shelley deal with life and how easy going and good natured they are. I hope Elana can reflect their personality even a little in our marriage!
- Christopher Moore, one of my cousins. One day I just nicknamed him ‘Click’ and it has stuck ever since. Chris has taught me a lot about loyalty and patience and what family really means. I love when I get to go home at Christmas time and see Chris.
- Elliot and Sydney. Today is their wedding day and we are in Louisiana to celebrate this day with them. Now I don’t know Elliot from Adam, and I know Sydney a little as she is one of wife’s best friends and she was in our wedding. But one thing I know is that my wife has fun when she is with Sydney and also that one of the funnest weekends we ever had as a couple was here in Alexandria with Sydney. I appreciate her friendship with my wife, her single mom toughness, and now I share a kinship with Elliott and step dads of young boys with crazy baby daddies. Thanks Sydney for your fun loving personality (all wrapped up in a small package!) and may you and Elliott be blessed in your marriage for many years.
