After reading my wife's last blog, I knew I had to write one depicting her in some other ways. My wife is an extraordinary person with a unique sense of humor. At the same time she is a bit reserved and sometimes lacks self confidence. However, Tess has really made tremendous gains in that area in the last few years. When she first came to the United States, she was as timid as a mouse. Not anymore! I have discovered that she can be as tenacious as a bulldog. Tess has had this dream of going back to school and entering the medical field. She has clung to that through many difficulties. Recently she fulfilled one dream by becoming a citizen of the United States. I am so proud of her. If I think of adjectives that really describe my wife though, it would be these: kind, caring, loving and generous to a fault. I really think she would give her last dollar away even if it meant going hungry if I did not stop her. She is really a loving person, especially with her children in the nursery.
Really though it is easy to see that she does have a terrific sense of humor and she is gaining self confidence. Witness the fact that she allowed me to post this photo. It would not be fair however to post this photo without posting one that shows the true Tess. This is my wife Tess with our two boys taken last winter.
