But that's not what this post is about.
As I sat here studying the ultrasound picture of Noisykid #14, I started thinking once again about the woman who carries this child in her womb. I thought of all the wonderful blessings she has brought to me - any one of which would qualify her as a wonderful wife and mother. All these thoughts prompted me to think about marriage, and what a tremendous gift it is that God gave us.
God has given me a friend unlike any other; one who knows me better than any other person on earth. She has known me since we were children, and has shared my life for more than 18 years now. She has had to deal with my moods, temper, absence, and somnolence for all these years, and yet she has stood by me. She has turned her back on the world for the sake of her children and her husband, giving all of her time and talent to caring for them.
I can only attribute her love for us is an indication of how much she loves Our Lord, because there are times that all of us(especially me) are hard to live with.
Someone once told me that I married UP - way up - when Wifeofdadwithnoisykids said 'I do' to me. I have to agree.
This little Noisykid represents the only creature I can take with me to Heaven. Long after this computer is landfill, and the words of this blog are dissipated, the souls of the Noisykids will continue for all eternity.
