Deeper than a puddle???

So Meg and I were talking today about me writing a post to our blog and I sort of chuckled. I told her that she always writes the "deep" stuff on our blog and I always write the "what up" blogs. And as I said that it really made me think about our relationship and I think that sums up a little part of our relationship and where we've come to. I think when we first met, I was definitely a little lost in where I was going in life and didn't have a clear direction. I think she was a little too directed and didn't allow any wiggle room. She knew what she wanted and was going to get there. I'd like to believe that we have balanced each other a little and we both see that other side. And please don't get me wrong, I can do the big speeches when I have to and she definitely knows how to cut it loose (just ask her about the time she slipped and fell in the kitchen). But overall, she keeps us grounded and I keep us goofy. It works for us.

While I'm on the topic of my wife and our relationship, I just want to tell everyone how incredibly proud of her I am. I've been gone over 5 weeks and I think some of the reality of my absence is starting to set in on us both. I don't think in a bad way. We're just coming to terms with it. In the time I've been gone, Meg has done some pretty incredible things. She has tackled our finances, is acting as both parents, handled a burst ear drum of Caleb and some other personal illnesses of her own. And not to mention that full time teaching gig she does on the side. And I could not be more proud of her. She has been keeping everything running smooth on the home front for me.

And to everyone that has given a helping hand to my family, "Thank you". As I've said before, I could not do what I have to do without knowing that my family is taken care of.

I love them so much and they are my everything.


  1. Wow- Josh for you that was deep...and very nice!

  2. Well said Josh! And poor Caleb...Lydia just had a burst ear drum last week too! NO fun!

  3. Did you REALLY have to bring up the kitchen-thing?! It hurts just thinking about it...*laughing*

    I love you more every just keeps getting better, eh?

    Remember...I knew what I was getting into 9 years ago when I married you. And I'm just as proud of you today...if not more so...than I was then. You love what you do...whether it's the Y...the Army...your friends or family...and you do it ALL with honor and integrity. You live life to the fullest extent of John 10:10 and I am honored to be your wife. I love you for everything you are, and everything God is making you to be!
