I’d like to take some time to give this man some “public” recognition.

Danny is a full time student in a program and university that requires intense rigor and a very high academic standard. His interests of study are even more difficult and challenging than others within the religion program. (He’s really smart guys.) In addition to this workload, Danny has a part time job. He walks home from campus late at night in freezing temperatures. He gets up early to read and prepare for class the next day.

Danny is fully supportive of my decision to stay at home and mother Naftalie. He loves Naftalie like only a father can, and there’s something deeply connective I feel when I see him with her. He is why I am able to do what I get to do every day.

Sacrifice isn’t one of the choices when you take the “What Love Language Do you Speak?”, but sacrifice is what communicates Love to me. Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross is the ultimate act of Love, and I think it represents what true Love is. And Danny has sacrificed for me. He has given up a lot for our relationship and for our marriage. And it hasn’t been easy, it’s been really hard. Which makes it all the more sacrificial and Loving.

Thank you for being so loyal Danny. Thank you for providing and for sacrificing. Thank you for regulating. Thank you for loving your girls.
