So I haven't been on here for awhile because my wife does most of the talking/blogging for us both. I wish that I had some explanation for the happenings in our lives for the last 2 years but I don't. I don't even know what to say to people who ask. I don't write my thoughts for those of you who frequent the blog, to analyze them or to tell me " what I need to do". I think that the last 2 years can compare to my time spent in Afghanistan. It has been the same in many ways like a battle spiritually. I don't mean that in the sense that I've felt less spiritual but, to fight to keep the same level of spirituality and harmony in our home. I think that Lord has given Myca and I these trials to better us in some way. Maybe there is something worse down the road and this is to develop "calluses" to soften the blow. Maybe Afghanistan and the things that have happened with the police departments are giving me experience so I can share it with someone who might go through something similar. I for one, don't claim to know what role I will take in the big scheme of things but I do know that a wise man ( it's always a wise man) told me that the only thing that you can do is open your mind and heart to let the Lord speak to you. "You have good fiber in your soul, a good father, and strive to be the best husband you can." I never show this part of me, those who know me, but I listen to the still small voice leading me and my family somewhere. I don't know where it will be, but the fact that He has guided me through a lot worse is comforting. I have so much to be thankful for. I have three of the best sons that a dad could ask for. They know how to push my buttons to the point that I yell....and sometimes maybe a bit too much. The Lord has put each one of those boys in my life to help me be a better dad.
Speaking of putting people in my life to make me better, that would be my lovely wife Myca. There are no words that can describe the way she makes me feel, but I will certainly try. When I met Myca over 8 years ago she rocked my world with that sexy hair. I saw her coming from the parking lot of the church. I still remember what she was wearing. I thought....well I wont tell you what I thought, but I knew that I needed to get to know her. I'll save you the details, but we were married 6 months later. She is what I think about when I have down time. She is the best friend that I could ask for. She brings the soft side out in me. She can give me "the look" and say, "That is your lie face... what are you really thinking?" I dont know anyone who can tell "my lie face" because I don't even know it, so there. She works so hard. I know there are people out there that can say there wife is the best but I can say that mine is even better. She is better because she makes me better.
Myca and I will have been married for 8 years on the 20th of this month. We have had some trials like so many other married couples have had. The only differnece is that I got to have those with my Myca. I love you very much Myca and can't imagine my life with out you. We will come out of this valley and be standing on the next peak and just think of the hard work that it took to get there. Happy 8 years.
