I can't believe that it has only been almost three weeks since Michael left. I feel like it has been an eternity. The kids still tell me daily how much they miss him . . . . I am glad it isn't just me.
He has been my rock since I met him.
He is the one person that I could always count on to be on my side.
He has literally saved my life on a couple of occasions.
He was by my side throughout each pregnancy and there when I delivered all of our babies, in one form or another.
He has supported me, with some voicing of opinion, throughout all of my crazy ideas.
He is the most amazing father that I could have ever asked for with our kiddos. He is loving and attentive and just down right amazing.
He loves sweets, watching movies (especially scary ones), bowling, music of all kinds, playing with the kids, working out and all kinds of Wii. All the everyday things that I love and miss now that he is gone.
He is the amazing man, that a year ago, truly began following Christ and changed a lot in our lives because of this. He was always a believer but he has really become an amazing follower and is leading us, as a family, down the right path. He is an amazing leader like that.
I am truly lucky to be able to call Michael my husband. I am proud to carry his name, even if we always joke that being a "Qualls" leads to bad luck. He is my love.
So as I sit here, stalking the Facebook page that they have for his regiment to catch a glimpse of him, I wanted everyone else to know that I don't just miss him because he helps me with the kids.
I don't just miss him because he is usually just here.
I miss him because he is Michael . . . and Michael and I have a special relationship. He is my lobster.
If you don't get that line it was on a Friends episode. :)
