Unplanned Gifts!

Mitch Teemley

Both of my kids were “unplanned gifts.” Nevertheless, when my first child arrived I fell instantly in love with her.

So much so that I was afraid I could never love another child as much. I needn’t have worried.  When Beth arrived I fell so in love with her that I was afraid it would encompass my love for Mandy.

Love is like that.

Years later, my mom told me that I too had been an “unplanned gift” and that my dad had reacted the exact same way.

Ah, yes. Love is like that.

In Memoriam: I love you, Dad!
