{Husband's Letters}

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Dear Little, sometimes you give me anaconda hugs when I come home after a long shift from the ER. There is nothing more rejuvenating than a special embrace from my love. Dear 9 Year Old Moti, you are the newest member of our family. You are in the 2nd grade, like science, and help your family carry water. I think your smile is contagious! Dear Thoracic Dissection Patient, yesterday you reminded me that life is short. Today I will be more intentional to value time with those I love. Dear Emma, your faithfulness has always led you to adventure. You are blessed to travel to Ethiopia this summer as a blogger for Food for the Hungry. I'm already looking forward to reading your posts and to seeing pictures of you and Moti together!

Over and out,
Tim

Are you a hugger or a hand shaker? Em's a hugger. I prefer a firm handshake, unless I'm getting hugs from a little someone I know.

Hugger for sure, although I can't remember the last time I was hugged.

Tim tam,

I'm a hugger, just like Em. Must be why we give each other a big squeeze when we haven't seen each other in awhile. Sending Em one right now. Will you make sure she gets it? :)

Women I hug. Men, I hand shake, unless they are a great guy friend.

OMG! Look at that smile!! A very bright Light is shining through him!

I'm a HUGGER for sure and my favorite thing to do is hug people who aren't necessarily huggers
: ). (i'm careful to pay attention to body language though and know when it's an absolute no-no)

I've turned several non-huggers into huggers that way.

I'm usually a hugger, but how awkward is it when one person goes in for the handshake and the other goes in for a hug...

Where will you be in Ethiopia? I spent a summer there, and then returned for two weeks the next summer. I definitely have a couple of kids there that I would love to take with me! Ethiopia will steal part of your heart for sure!
