Two years ago I hit a rough spot at work. I have many of those. I hope one day I can explain why … so you don’t have those yourself.
Two years ago, I hit a rough spot at work, and I made an active choice. I was going to spend every some time every single day talking about what made me grateful and what made me thankful.
I did this for a long time.
About a year later, we realized we were going to have you.
And today, two years later, here we are. Here you are. And you’ve plugged yourself into the perfect place. You are the love your sister’s life, from moment one; and your mother and I feel the same.
Two years removed, I look at this moment and say unequivocally: #iamgrateful and #iamthankful. I say I am, and I tell you Jaanu, no matter how I may act in precise moments, I always and I always will be. You (and your sister) have made certain of it.
Today you make me proud because, today, you have given me yet another reason to be forever grateful and forever thankful.
I love you, homie. We were a family before you; but we are only a complete family because of you.
