Mother's Day!

Posted by Derek

Call it laziness, procrastination, or what have you, but I didn't purchase a Mother's Day card for my wonderful wife this year. I don't know exactly where the construction paper and magic markers are, but if I did I would follow suit with the Rigby tradition of hanging little cards with clever one-liners in them about this holiday.

As I sit here early morning with a talking two month old, listening to his coos and smiling at his smiles, I realize that there is no easy way to correctly convey my love and gratitude for such a loving and wonderful individual such as my wife. Aynna is so willing to sacrifice for me and for Jonah. How many nights has she stayed up alone with this beautiful boy already, and how many more will she willingly sacrifice without question? Aynna is so gorgeous with such a wonderful disposition and personality, I find myself one of the most fortunate men around to have her.

So here's to the person I admire the most. Thanks for all that you do, for your loving example and all that you sacrifice and go through just for our little family. Jonah and any other future Riglets are so blessed to have you as their mother.

We love you!
