and it starts new
it’s amazing how your paradigm for – well – just about everything, changes when you become a parent. i’ve had some friends ask me what it’s like. i’ve been a dad for a daughter outside the womb for 5 days now, so this is obviously expert. i think of how i changed being similar to three other times in my life – when i was baptized in Peru, when i proposed to Bethany, and when we made our covenant to God & each other at our wedding. each of those times there was this almost instantaneous change that i perceived in my head & my heart; things were just suddnely different. that happened again on Thursday at 5:24pm.
