I have been asked by a few readers of my Blog, WHY do you do this and when do you have the time?
I had to think about that for about a minute, yeah just a minute. You see this blog is not just about me putting my thoughts down which really is therapeutic, but it is about sharing my love to my son and my wife Lina.
Lina and I started out together 16 years ago today. We started that slow crawl to dating and getting to know eachother. Then it escalated to knowing enough about eachother and knowing that there wasn't another soul on this earth that we'd rather be with so we got married. Then it was just believing that God's plan for our lives would eventually involve becoming parents. Eight years of dating, six years of married, and WALLAY, Lina is pregnant.
So waiting all those years for a chance to be a dad, well you hold a lot of emotions that you really do not know how to express. Every feeling that you have is bottled up inside and it feels like it will make you explode. But this Blog has allowed me not only to share those feelings with those that we love and cherish in our lives, but it has given me a great memory tool, so that when Christopher grows up and is able to read, he will have a diary full of many years that chronicled his life and our lives together. He will then be able to share this with his kids and his own grandkids.
This Blog started out as a mere way to share my feelings, but it has grown to more than that. It will be my way to communicate to Christopher when we are with the Lord, how much he changed our lives when he arrived on December 3, 2005. How much the arrival of a precious gift from God made all the years of waiting and trusting in God all worth it.
Oh yeah, when do I have the time, well I think about it this way, we are all busy in our daily routines, but if I just take out an hour an evening or a few days a week to write down all that I am thinking and new things that Christopher has done, by the time he is older and on his own, this Blog will be a novel and it will be about him. What a great gift to give to your child. A Novel about his life. I write every chance I get.
So my answer to those that ask me WHY? WHY NOT!!!!
