I write books, articles for magazines and for three online websites. Still, I don’t get very personal very often. My family has never asked me to honor their privacy, I just do. But, hands down, my BIGGEST online/social-media-hater would have to be my brother in law. He hates it. He seriously HATES it.
I’d never think to post about him.. Any other time I’d respect his privacy–but today is different. Today we need your prayers. Today he’s having brain surgery.
Why am I taking my life into my own hands? As you can tell, I made sure to find a photo that didn’t show his face. I’m no dummy! Why do we love him so much? My list below might explain it.
- If anyone in our extended family is a “favorite” it’s Eric.
- Eric never sugar coats anything. He is honest and shares the truth–always in a hilarious way.
- He’s a great Dad and a loving husband. My sister and Eric began dating when they were 14yrs old.
- He is a gun-owning-deer-hunting-American-loving man with a heart as soft as a marshmallow that’s been sitting in the summer sun.
This photo is from the birth of their third daughter quite a few years ago. God knows Eric looks tough on the outside but there is no one more suited to care for a house full of women. He is the glue that holds them all together.
Would you please take a minute and pray for this person we love so much? We want him around for a long, long time. My sister and my three nieces could use your prayers, too. Thank you for taking the time for us today.
I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
