Another Permanent Hope

Yesterday Cash went to his first Astro's game - thanks to our new friend Carol, we sat in a very nice suite on the third base line.  Cash did well, except he didn't watch the game at all, he watched Diego on the iPad (oh well, we enjoyed the game).  Here are a few pics:

In addition to the game, I had to follow in my dad's footsteps and we visited the tattoo shop...Wendi and I started working on a tattoo for my arm as soon as we saw my dad's.  We already have 'Cuts for Cash', now we're working on 'Tats for Cash' - here's a pic of the still-swollen and a bit red tattoo:

Mucho thanks to my lovely wife for the beautiful design, she told me it was a great Mother's Day present so that makes me happy.

Speaking of Mother's Day, this has been the first time I've been away from my wife on Mother's Day and I know my mom misses all of kids and grandkids but we're making due.  No baby yet but Wendi's staying busy on this Mother's Day.  I miss her tremendously but I know we'll be together soon - she is an amazing mom to our two sons and third on the way (hurry up baby!).  Happy Mother's day to all mom's and especially to my mom who has given three-plus months of her life recently to caring for Cash, she is a very special mom and we love her very much.

Thank you for your prayers and support as always!!!


  1. OK...this is such a beautiful post. You have two very special ladies in your life...I know you are thankful. Give your mom a hug from me today...I am praying for all of you there in Houston and Wendi and the new baby too!!

    OH and SWEET tat!


  2. Thanks Jack for helping me and my kids realize that the best gift a mother can receive on Mother's Day is her children. I honor you and Wendi this Mother's Day be remembering to be the best Mom I can be. Can't wait to see pictures of the new baby. Love you guys and please let Wendi know we are praying for her and to have a blessed Mother's Day.
    RoxAnn, Michael and KathLene.

  3. Your flowers that you gave to Wen are gorgeous and I love your tattoo!! Your so right about Wen, she's such an amazing mom and I'm also very thankful your mom is there to help too. Excited to meet the newest addition this week. You and Cash are always in my thoughts and prayers.

    Please give Cash a BIG HUG from Auntie.

  4. Cash, I wear your blue band proudly and it reminds me to pray for you and your family...You are such a cutie, with SO MANY people who love and adore you! I also love your Dad's new 'tat'. Especially the Cross as part of the word Hope! Blessings on all of you. Jan Kok
