So, while Melody was gracious enough to thank me, and her own mother, it is really a day to celebrate all that she is to our family. She has become a mother with such strength and grace, it's as if she has always been a mother, only awaiting her child. The way she cares for Cate, in talking to her, reading to her, holding her, playing with her, praying over her, and always worrying about her and thinking about her, just simply amazes me. But on top of all that, she is a great, caring wife, keeping the two of us (Cate and myself) in almost perfect balance. I know that none of this is possible without the grace of God, but it takes a strong woman to respond to his grace, and accept it. To all other mothers who do likewise for their families, thank you, and please know how much you are loved and appreciated. And to my wife, know that Cate and I both will always hold a place in our hearts for you. God Bless.
