My Husband's Heart

My husband has a good heart. It's not sappy or romantic. It's not full of fear or anxiety.

It's just good.

Many times after we lost Ellie and Kate I wondered if he was angry at me. If somewhere deep in his soul he held me responsible for taking his little girls away from him.

He didn't.

I wish I could say I would've handled the situation the same. That I would've never questioned or wondered if he could've done something different to keep them safe.

Even when his heart was broken it was good.

We had this joke a McD about "a guy named Bob..." He's a great guy, and a regular guy. We love BOTH of you. So happy to be in your lives...
