Proverbs 12:4 “A worthy wife is a crown for her husband.” When my wife sets her eyes on something, nothing will stand in her way. When I call a restaurant, if they’re full I’ll look for another venue. When she calls she’ll leave her name and call back every five minutes to check on cancellations. Her persistence has really shined in this whole process with my father. At each step of the way, when the Korean doctors wanted my dad to wait weeks for the next appointment, she pushed to bump it up. From Googling expat clinics, to nudging us, to calling friends (thanks Jina!) she’s shaved well over a month from this whole process. That can literally mean the difference between life or death in situations like this one. In my last conversation with my mom, she said “please thank Elaine for us! It really means a lot that she cares so much.” Dear Lord, I thank you for blessing me with a worthy wife. She is indeed a crown for me. I love her so much, and I love you so much for putting us together. In your son’s most precious name, Amen.
