We all look forward to summer as a time to sit back and relax, but somehow our schedule missed the memo. We’re still carving out time to really connect with family, but between the graduations, weddings, birthdays and other summer activities, we’re booked! It is for all these joyous occasions I am thankful along with the health and happiness to enjoy them. As I sat down to highlight one of them I realized that it is not one event that stuck out in my mind this past week, but one person…my absolutely wonderful and incredibly handsome husband.
The hustle and bustle of preparations, baby juggling and energetic rascal chasing can often add stress and distraction, but having someone to share the joy and crazy with is a blessing I simply haven’t verbalized my gratitude enough for. You’d think I would be more appreciative….it wasn’t long ago I was a full-time working single mom who was wrestling the aftermath of divorce all alone. Someday I’ll need to share our awesome story of how God brought us together. It was beautiful and at the time I recognized the pure gift (and miracle!) it was. Yet somewhere along the way, though his awesomeness and contribution to my life have only increased, I have let the exhaustion, clutter and frustrations of life decrease my affirmation and thanks.
So to the beardo who married a weirdo, the teacher who could be a preacher, the sound guy who makes my heart fly, the biker dude who endures my crabby mood, and the architectural engineer whom I revere….aka, my handsome hubby :
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
That’s right…23. You deserve so much more than this. I am sorry if my weaknesses have ever made you doubt yourself as the amazing, anointed, strong, courageous, wise, talented, kind, wonderful, necessary and cherished son of the King of Kings that you are. I am beyond blessed to be yours, and I am incredibly thankful that you chose me to spend this side of Heaven with. MUAH!! 🙂
Sorry for the mushy part there, but it’s true, he’s pretty terrific. Now you make think I’m biased, and that’s totally understandable. So let me know who YOU are especially thankful for this week? Who has blessed your life in a special way? Maybe you want share your gratitude for something instead of someone?
