Twenty five years ago who would have thought we would have 9 kids? Kelley didn't become a dad for the first time until he was 28 and had his last one at 50. When most men are meeting their grand kids at 50... my man was enjoying the miracle of becoming a daddy. I have seen him go from building houses to moving to the job of Deputy Regional Commissioner for GSA. If it weren't for having so many kids...I don't think he would have succeeded in all his achievements. Four years ago he was finally able to begin his dream of getting his masters degree. After two long years of nonstop classes...all the while working a FULL time job,raising a family and participating in a Senior fellow program...Oh! we had our last baby January 2007 and He graduated November 2007 with a Master of Science Degree. What an achievement! I am so proud to be married to a man that truly loves his family and is proud to let everyone know that he has 9 kids! In the past 25 years we have had many adventures,trials and achievements. I can't imagine ever walking this road with anyone other than Kelley Holcombe. He has been my encourager,confidant,fellow partner in crime of baby making,prayer warrior,husband and friend...he keeps me sane. The one thing that gives me peace about our marriage...no matter how tough the road is...is Kelley's walk with Jesus. My prayer is that our children will find that same peace in their future spouses. Nothing can describe how it feels to know that the one that loves you KNOWS the ONE THAT LOVES YOU!
I love you Kelley Holcombe! I am so blessed to have you as a husband and father to our children. Happy Father's Day!!!
Oh! And for this Father's Day weekend...OUR LAKE HOUSE IS FINISHED !
