The longest yard

Ok, so not a yard… more like six inches… but still.  I’m not going to take two minutes of your time to talk your ear off today.  Instead, I’m going to share two minutes of Tessa that literally has me floating right now.

If you’ve been following Tessa for quite some time… or if you read my post about my defective child, what happens at 1:47 might just get you, too.  I watched the video about 4 times before I saw it…

He’s a wonderful, supportive, loving, helpful, fun, funny, kind, and caring husband and father… and I am thankful to have him in the trenches with me.


Love you, Jefe!!
