As I find myself at the kitchen table gathering my thoughts for a class paper, some photography biz deals, an upcoming beach shoot, wrapping up fundraising for Young Life, and sipping some good ole’ morning coffee it dawned on me how little I’ve written about the most special person in my whole life, Tracy.
Just last night as we lay in bed we were chatting about how in the world we’ve made it these eleven years together. You take two individuals from different nationalities, languages, cultures, family values and strong personalities and it does not take long to see danger ahead. But in spite of how different we are or how the deck has been stacked against us, our relationship keeps going strong and our bond even stronger.
Second, the icing. Tracy is incredibly sharp, discerning, social, a servant, great steward and timely hilarious. It is truly a treat to partner through life with such a beautiful, both inside and out, person.
A Lot has been said and written on love, relationships, who loves who, who respects who, how much you give and what to hold back. In my opinion, I could not have achieved this level of relationship if not for the tremendous respect and admiration I have towards the mother of my kids, my best friend and partner in life. Needless to say, Tracy I’m your #1 and biggest fan! My hope is to keep appreciating you for who you are today and to model this mature relationship to our kids and the world. I love ya!
