Hey Mommerz. . .Just wanted to let you know on your very special holiday just for you that I love you SO much! And our family would never be able to function without what you do for us. Cooking, cleaning, reluctantly submitting to my hugs [see The Chinese Problem with Hugs for more background}. . .all very much appreciated. So like most other holidays that we’re supposed to be obedient for you on, we’ll probably fail again today and you’ll be sad. Just want you to know that we all really wish we were good enough to give you that gift.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. . . I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. (Romans 7: 14, 18-19 TNIV)
