A Thankful Man

What kind of man would send his wife and 12-year-old daughter to Kenya by themselves?

The answer I wish I could give is: The kind of man who was smart enough to marry such a woman.

But, alas, when I married her I didn’t know that’s what I was getting.

So all I can answer is: A thankful man.
