My wife…is about the most amazing person I know. She is truly a SUPERHERO to my boys, the girls and me. Here is what makes her super….
This weekend she had her dreams crushed, I mean destroyed. She has a picture of our lives and what she wants out of life and how we should be living. She wants to raise her own chickens, if we could find the land to do it, she’d raise her own cows both for eating and milking. There would definitely be some sort of garden and probably it would be significant. We would go to farmers markets and personally know a fishmonger, a butcher and a baker. We would not have HFCS in our diet, nor would we have Xantham Gum, Monosodium Glutimate(MSG), or maltodextrin. We would like to eat “Hippie” and with all the other stuff be “Hippie”, to include live in a veritable “Hippie” place. That was Whidbey Island for Jo. She has more websites from her research of the place in her bookmarks than I’ve ever had in my life. She has been researching for months and within the space of one day had it all taken away….
She called her parents, cried, was sad and hasn’t done the dishes. This is since Friday night…LATE. Today is Tuesday. So this is, like, 3 days later. Now for the new place, she has a website list that rivals (possibly beats) the Whidbey Island list. She’s already found a place for us to get grass finished beef, she’s found a place for us to live…while we are looking for a house to buy. She has found schools for the kids to go (Japanese) which are probably to expensive to enroll them into. She has met with several people, sent e-mails and chatted…did I forget to mention I got sick today, I was going to be a good husband and do the dishes for her. I got sick, and SHE did the dishes for ME.
She is my friend and the mother to my kids. She is the keeper and caretaker of my family, she pushes me to new levels, new limits. I’m back in college, Jake will have an easier time learning Japanese in the future, Quinn is the strongest most coordinated kid in his gymnastics class, and Kira is BE-E -A-U-TIFUL.
She is MY WIFE…MY HERO….
