This past April I joined my wif,e Shannon, during the DiabetesSisters Weekend for Women Conference in Washington D.C.
I’d never really given much thought to the notion of love at first sight until the moment that my precious daughter, Nicole, was first placed into my arms, and I was as they say, instantly and utterly ‘hooked’! I couldn’t stop looking at her, completing the requisite counting of fingers and toes, and marveling at this tiny perfect being my husband and I had created.
I met my wife online in March 2011. We clicked almost instantly and married on August 4, 2012. We share a love of our faith, TV crime dramas and cats, serving as “mom” and “dad” to Callie and Stash.
Diabetes has been a part of her life since she was 10 months old – and now it is a part of mine, too.
I have come to recognize the musical sound of her sensor and just nudge her in bed, lovingly saying: “Hon, you’re beeping.”
I am blessed to have married the strongest and most remarkable woman I have ever met. I was amazed at her ability to make the most of what life brought and not get too hung up on the small stuff. After all, Vicki and I were, and still are, in the prime of our lives. She is deeply passionate about living her life and raising our family including three children and a pugnacious puggle, Miss Lola.
I love quotes. I always have. I actually had a quote wall for some time. It was an oversized canvas that hung in my living room and every person that came over to visit needed to add their words of wisdom. It could have been a quote from someone famous, words that they live by, or advice that they would share with others. So it makes sense to me that I share my perspective along with one of my favorite quotes.
