Thankful Thursday

Nablopomo ~ Day 21

After my "downer" post yesterday, I thought I would focus something a little more positive today. Despite life being pretty hard at the moment, I really do have quite a few things I am thankful for.

The one that comes to mind today is my hubby.  Our whole marriage he has bee there, standing beside me when others wouldn't.  He is the one that lets me cry on his should night after night.  He is the one the encourages me and makes me smile, even on my worst days.

He is the one who is gentle and kind with the girls and calms me down when my patience in gone. (really I think we cancel each other out here because I tend to do the same thing for him) He is the one that works his rear end off to make life as good as he can for us.  He is the one that tells me it's okay to go away for a few days, that I need it and deserve it.  He encourages me to go and hang out with the girls, because he knows I need it and I always come back laughing. :)

He is the one that when I am feeling overwhelmed will do the dishes (I know that may sound like a small thing, but for me it's huge.) for me and has even offered to take over the grocery shopping (God bless his soul, but I'm afraid all we would eat would be eggs, brats, hamburgers and chicken on the grill.). He will even do the laundry and put the girls to bed.  He is the one that after my longest days, will treat me to a glass of wine and a nice foot massage.

He is the one that I can complain to and he doesn't take offense.  He is the one that no matter what I do or how much I screw things up, he loves me anyway. He is my rock.  I don't know where I would be without him and his love for me and the girls.  So today, he is what I am most thankful for.
