Husband & Father vs. Provider...

Since, I've begun this journey with my husband, I've learned that sacrifices and compromises would always be made. Trying to be the best husband, father and provider became a struggling decision in the Reed Household this summer. Would he stay home to be a part of every step of our pregnancy or would he leave to play basketball in hopes of making it home in time to be a part of Julian's delivery. 

In order for my husband to return to basketball this season we laid out strict guidelines, circumstances and request. The deal had to be perfect and in favor of our family in order for us to accept it. The tough decision came when everything we asked God for came to pass. It's what we wanted, however, at the same time it's not what we wanted. Definitely a bittersweet moment.

That's when my husband looked at me and said, "sometimes being the best husband and dad requires being a provider first". With that said I am currently asking God to keep me healthy the last few months of my pregnancy, allow my husband to make it home in time to witness his son entering this world and bless my husband with a wonderful season in Argentina, South America! Julian and I can't wait to join him in January.
