Well, our weekend went off spectacularly. John Henry played his first soccer game, and he thought the tumble and roll was the best part of the game. Here he is before the uniform needed a good washing.
We were pretty certain this girl here was our ringer.
Not so much.
Anyhoo, the start of Takle/Landreth sports has begun. And, we couldn’t be more excited or proud.
Anna, much like her momma, kicked it back and soaked it all in.
As I gave John Henry one of his birthday gifts, I told him it was from his Dad.
His response and, no doubt, quote of the weekend, “What kind?”
In other words, which dad?
We all laughed at our not so normal life.
People often ask us how we do what we do. How do Kris and Bryan do dinner together, laugh together, and share the joys of one amazing boy together? I don’t know that I ever explain it all very well. This is what I do know:
– After Bryan and I separated (and I was pregnant with John Henry), I prayed several scriptures over Bryan’s life. (Thank you, Bob and LaRue McDaniel, for your amazing book, “Pray the Word”.)
– I chose forgiveness.
– I married a man who not only loves me, but loves John Henry so much that he loves Bryan, too.
– I took ownership in “my stuff.”
– I thank God every day that His mercies are new every morning.
Because, I need them. We all need them. And, I know that I know that I know, that I am nothing without Him.
What kind of dad? The kind that loves.
Aren’t you glad our heavenly Father loves us no matter what?
