More showers...more than words
We are four days away from getting on a plane to China. In the past week, we have been so blessed by friendships and community support in all kinds of ways. I have had not one but two "showers" since the Church gave us the most wonderful celebration (and I am the dad). My school faculty gave me so much in celebration of Emma Rose on Wed. Then, and this is the kicker, all 115 my students, my softball players, and my wonderful team honor teachers blew me away with a surprise going to China to become a daddy party. That moment, their gifts of love and kind words meant more to me than any words I could come up with. I tear up now just looking back on it. It all seems so surreal to think we are receiving such a gift as a child to love and to raise. WOW!
