This weekend my son and I had the privilege of honoring the wonderful women in our lives. But there's is one women who holds our heart the most and that is my beautiful wife Ciji Gamble. Throughout our five years of marriage we have had many ups and downs but nothing compares to the moment in February 2014 when we found out we were expecting. We'd been on this road for almost our entire marriage, trying to have a child and it never happening. It became even the more evident that God had allowed such a beautiful and wonderful person to come into my life when we experienced the arrival of our son. It was the most shocking and exciting day of our lives November 4, 2014 when Matthew II made his grand entrance into the world.
This weekend makes it even more special because my wife will really be able to experience what it's like to be celebrated on such an important day for every mother. Yesterday was a special day because she informed me that she wanted to be celebrated individually from our mothers. I had many options of where we could go but I asked God to guide me and he did. South Haven, Mi is where he led us at the same restaurant and table that we had dinner at days before the arrival of Matthew. It meant a lot to her that we ended there and I was happy to celebrate her along with our son. Although our son has no idea what Mother's Day mean or what will be going on the fact that he is finally here is what matters most to my wife. Her having a child to call her own and to be celebrate was something that I will never forget.
On today and everyday I am so honored to celebrate a loving, selfless and compassionate wife on this Mother's Day. No one could ever compare to the love and joy that you have brought Matthew and I and there's no way possible we could do it without you. Happy Mother's Day!!!
