These past couple of weeks have been completely surreal. It seems like the world stopped turning and then started moving in a different direction. Up was down, chaos and turmoil was the norm, and everything was in a constant state of upheaval. There’s always been one rock I could stand on, that would support me, and was always there when needed…
Throughout these past weeks Becky has been there for me in any way imaginable. She’s been there to hug me when I’m down. When I needed time alone she stepped back. Several times she reminded me to take care of myself. In the moments that I needed to collapse she held me up and wiped the tears away. The nights I stayed over in the hospital she kept the house running, the boys fed, and all going to the right places at the right time – never once giving me a hard time or complaining. Whatever was needed, Becky was there for me.
When I wasn’t sure what to do she pointed me in the right direction. The couple of occasions in which I just wanted to run away or shirk my responsibility she encouraged me and coached me. When I lost sight of what was really important she guided me. Every step of the way, whether present with me or not, she was there with me, supporting me.
As she did all of this she stayed strong for me. She misses my dad as much as I do and has her own sadness to deal with, yet she set it aside to take care of me. There were many sacrifices she made as she has kept me going over the past couple of weeks, I am incredibly grateful for her presence. Without her love and support I wouldn’t have made it through this. Every day Becky helps me to become a better man. Every day she supports me. Every day she loves me. For that I am extremely thankful!!!
