This was the title of an Eminem song. I think it applies to me (the words in the title-not the song). These two kiddos take a lot of time and energy. They also need that, and I need to give it. Who I am must be put aside for their benefit.
So many people are scared of losing themselves to their children. I do not share that fear. I also must lose myself to my wife, and ultimately, to God. The point is, as Christ showed us, we only truly become who we are supposed to be when we lose ourselves. This is most clearly the case with my wife and kids-I must lose myself to them.
Besides...it's a blast.
