I woke at 5am this morning wanting to leap from bed and jumping into the enormity of responsibility that lay in wait for me today. I was frozen. The dog lay across my feet. And Evan was using my chest for a pillow. My muscles ached from yesterday’s races through the obstacle course and longed to stretch or have me move about; however, there is no better feeling than the love of wife, children and pets. I convinced myself that, if I moved from the bed, Evan was certain to squirm out of it to the floor, so for his protection, I slept in! Yeah.. that’s it..
