monday morning melting

I read an article on this morning about Dax Shepards blog. His language can be rather crude and his comments crass....but he has a way with words. He writes about his fathers battle with and eventual loss to cancer and does so beautifully and hilariously at times. In case you don't know who he is, he's an actor and married to the ridiculously cute -and expecting- actress, Kristen Bell.
Here is the paragraph in his most recent post where i might have grabbed a tissue.

"At one point, and unbeknownst to both of us, my wife walked into the room. She had flown in from LA without any warning. It was a surprise. It was an amazing, incredible, perfectly timed surprise. She lifted her shirt up and he put his hand on her swollen stomach. He left it there for the better part of an hour. He was smiling from ear to ear, sitting contently, unable to put together a sentence, but still capable of connecting to the new family member we were creating. He wasn’t going to make it to the birth, but that didn’t get in the way of him meeting the new baby. It was an emotional and triumphant moment. One I will never forget. If I live to be a thousand, I will still be in debt to my wife for giving him that one last thrill"
