The Little Gentleman

I decided I wanted to share a little about my biggest, little man, David. Yesterday we went to pick some pizza up that we wanted to share with a family and while I was getting out of the car (David had already jumped out of the car) the woman was getting in her car next to me and started saying something about how nice our little boy was. Then I realized that David had run up to the door and held it open for her. She kept on saying how nice that was, and really she seemed shocked about it.

As I was thinking about this experience I remembered that when we go anywhere with doors David rushes up and opens it and stands there holding it to let me and anyone else through. He is such a little gentleman, but he didn't just come up with this on his own. I remember how people always say, "it was my angel mother who taught me". Well, with David, all the sweet things he does is because he saw his "angel daddy" do it. He is always finding flowers to give me, because he sees Clark give me flowers. He helps in so many things because he sees his sweet daddy always serving and doing kind deeds.

I am so thankful for my sweet husband who really does more for my family than I have ever seen one person do for anyone! He rides his bicycle to work (~8 miles) because he doesn't want to leave me without a vehicle. When we have an appointment where I need to pick him up from work, he will actually run (at least to the bus stop, which I don't know how far away that is, but it isn't just a walk down the street). From the time we were dating up to now he has kept a vase of fresh flowers for me. When he comes home he keeps himself busy doing things for us like cooking, dishes, and anything he sees that needs to be done. Yet, he also seems to have time to play with us, read books, and do fun things. He is the hardest worker I have ever seen and I am thankful that this amazing man is my best friend and husband. I know that our Father in Heaven guided us to be together because of our miraculous meeting (you can read a little part of that Here), although I don't understand why I was blessed with such an amazing man for a husband. I really had no idea that he was so amazing, and I am still learning about how amazing he is!

After all is said and done, I am sure our children will say that they learned all good things from their "angel father", Clark. I love him so much and am thankful for him.

I love you, Clark!
