Robert Beyond- Amazing- Man!

Let me just start out by saying that crazy people and I don't do well together. I don't know what it is. I don't even have to open my mouth. The minute I show my face to a crazy person, they get all worked up and start going nuts! If I can somehow keep them distracted with all my bustling around, I just have to open my mouth and then it's on! So, I am overly impressed with people that can deal with the crazy! Robert is one of them. I still don't know how Rob gave up teaching so easily (really ran from it.) He is so good at it. Besides being an amazing teacher he is so good at the discipline. Ok, I know, I just compared crazy people to teaching teenagers- but let's face it, it's sort of the same thing! Yesterday, a lady from our ward came up to me and told me that she was sure that people had been talking my ear off about how amazing my husband was, "beyond amazing!" Um, nope, please continue! Then she told me about how he had handled a teenager who really needs medication and counseling bad! There are 5 kids in the recently baptized family and the father just died of a heart attack. They are all adopted after having been foster kids with this family. The mother hasn't the slightest idea how to deal with them and is actually part of the problem. I guess he was going nuts this Sunday (I was at work), hitting his brothers in the face, etc. and finally ran out of the chapel and around the building. Robert went after him and Beyond-Amazing-Man got him from crazy-out-of-control to calmly and humbly bearing his testimony in under a minute. (OK, I may be lying about the time frame.) But that's how he rolls. He can diffuse the craziest of situations. I am so glad to have him in my life to help me with the crazy that comes out! He definitely is Beyond Amazing!
