It’s an awesome thing (and I don’t mean awesome like, dude…I mean - leaving one full of awe, awesome) to really know and love someone so intimately, to be so familiar with them that you know every, single piece of them. Do you know what far surpasses that kind of closeness?
…to be blessed enough (five time in our case) to be able to recognize all of those same qualities, in varying parts and patterns, in and on your children. To have these other, little people…half you and half the person you love…here (listen to me now) HERE on this earth as a result of LOVE…awesome.
This post is dedicated to Antonio Lavette Sparrow - father of Antonio DeShawn, Devaney Antonia, Destiny LaVette, D’Angelo Antonio, and Adarius LaVette – and all the pieces of this man that I love, clearly visible in the children God saw fit to put together by the mixing of our DNA.
His feet, shoulders, and passion for the game on our oldest…his face, waist, and confidence on our first daughter.. his booty, hands and sensitivities on our second daughter…his ears, bottom lip, and sense of curiousity on our fourth child…his mouth, round head, and bright smile on our last…and his beautiful, brown eyes on all five.
Thank You Father for all the pieces of him…but especially for the five parts of him we call our kids…we are so blessed
