People make declarations for their spouses on social media these days. It made me chuckle this year because everyone said that their husband was the best father ever, along with many other well deserved compliments. I joked with Kev that I was going to write something sarcastic about him on Facebook like, "Happy Father's Day Kev, you're hanging in there," or "maybe you'll get the hang of parenting next year." I didn't though, I feared some well meaning church folk would find my joke less than respectful.
The truth is, he's not perfect. He is however, mine and I couldn't be more proud of that fact. What most people do not realize when the meet us is that he gave up everything he knew, everything he was comfortable with, friends, family, culture, even something as simple as food to build a life with me.
That is huge. Who does that? It's scary, it's crazy, I still can't believe he did it.
No, he's not perfect. He is human, he is patient, he is kind, he is hard working, he is adventurous, and he loves us well. How about that for well deserved compliments.
