Who is the luckiest guy in the world?

I had an interesting interaction with my new boss today. We were individually bragging about our spouses. His wife works across the hall from me. He said to me "watch this." He hollered his wife's name as he yelled "who is the luckiest guy in the world." Her immediate response was, "you are."

I thought it was cute, but it made me wonder if I would get the same response from my wife who is now 36 weeks pregnant? I certainly feel like I am the luckiest guy in the world. I have a wife who at least pretends to adore me on most days. I have a son that greets me with a smile and a hug every day and I have a another blessing on the way.

I was thinking that I would make a list of all my blessings today on this blog, but it turns out it is too long to list. Today, I am especially thankful for my wife and for the awesome woman of God that she is. I look forward to the next few months that promise to be the most challenging in our marriage thus far. I pray that together we will endure it with love and acceptance of God's many blessings.

I have heard people respond that they are "living the dream" when they are asked how they are doing. I am not "living the dream," I am "living a miracle" and it is more than I ever could have imagined!
