Remember the movie, “Regarding Henry,” with Harrison Ford? The well-to-do, workaholic, self-centered lawyer who gets shot in the head and gains a new perspective on life and family? The before-and-after nature of the movie caught me off guard recently, when it dawned on my that my husband is the after.
“Henry” wakes up not remembering his before-life in any way; he is honest and sweet, childlike and selfless. My husband, Wayne, already takes the time to listen to his daughter, to absorb her personality, to chart her growth physically and emotionally. He already takes the time to hug and kiss me, to put me above his job and his friends, to tell me that he loves me no matter who might overhear. He has never worked in a dishonest way or stepped on anyone to advance himself. He embodies loyalty and integrity and honor. He’s my man, and I am blessed.
Thank You Lord, for forming his heart without a bullet wound!
