A Favorite Photo, My Favorite Girl

This my friends is a picture of DramaMama at her truest and most excellent best.

I love this picture.

Nothing is more beautiful than the love a mother has for her new child.

DramaMama went through an incredible ordeal to bring the Bear into this world. She spent the better part of two months in the hospital being induced, tortured, tormented, poked, and prodded. She endured excruciating pain to the point of wishing for death.

Yet after all of this, when the new little one was in need of an IV, the needle of which was as long as his wee little arm, DramaMama wept for him, not for herself.

The love in her heart is overflowing, and she gives it freely to the point of utter exhaustion. Her thoughts are for the well being of others and rarely for herself. Even when we are at our lowest point, she wants to help others who have it worse than we do.

She is a beautiful person both inside and outside. Her character is pure, her soul is pure, her love is pure. I am truly honored and blessed to call her my wife and my best friend. I kneel at her feet as the court jester in the Queen's royal court.

In many ways I feel unworthy of such a wonderful companion, and I thank the Lord for his love and guidance, and for bringing the two of us together.

I love you honey!

Now in light of DramaMama's latest post, please visit The Peebugg Press for some nice photos of DramaMama from yesteryear.

Ohhhhhh what a blessed woman -- not only does her husband ADORE and HONOR her, but he's a WRITER on top of all that!!!!!!!!

Dave-- I cried... Gee thanks! What an amazing post and it's very flattering to see that men can actually pour out their feelings about their spouse or loved ones without trepidation. Your wife and children are very lucky to have you. I am lucky to call you a friend!

XXOO,

Thanks for the comment at our blog, both the wife and I are on our computers looking at your blog. I just heard a loud "AHHHHH he loves his wife."

Awesome pictures, you must be very proud of your wonderful family.
