Lamar was made for me. He’s kind in the most authentic and pure way. He’s intentionally thoughtful in the details of even the most average day. I’m so encouraged by him because he’s passionate about seeing me thrive and love myself. I feel challenged everyday to give my best because I know he’s doing all he can do to give his best.
He’s the father of our six-month-old son. Watching Lamar become a dad was not a drastic change at all. The father in him emerged so naturally, like that man had been there all along. That’s because he’s always been a caregiver who chooses to give all of himself for those he loves. During those middle-of-the-night cluster feedings, he would simply sit with me. To keep my company. Just being with me was far greater a comfort than anything. He didn’t have to, but he did. I didn’t even ask. His servant heart is so intuitive and innocent. Lamar is my sweetest partner and teammate.
He is truly my refuge in every storm. Sounds cheesy, but it’s true. When I’m fearful and anxious, he’s sure and strong. We may think we’ve seen each other at our worst and best, but I know there’s so much more to come. I just feel so lucky to get to figure it out with him.
