A Strong Father

Lately, ever morning when Matt gets ready to head out the door to go to work, Elle breaks down in tears. She runs over to him, giant tears rolling down her cheeks, and latches onto his leg. She looks up at him with the biggest eyes imaginable and says, "Daddy, I don't want you to go! I want you to just stay here with me!" It is enough to bring a few drops of moisture to even my eyes! And yet, Matt just hugs her tight and promises he will play with her the second he gets home. He smiles at her and walks out the door. I am amazed that he is strong enough to do so. Good job being strong, Daddycakes!!!

Nicole, you sure did marry one of my favorite people! I hope we get a chance to get to know each other better.

Good job, Daddy! There seems to be nothing more powerful than a little girl's tears shed over her daddy!
