Today is my dear husbands birthday and I just wanted to take a minute to share with the world how lucky I am to have him. Don’t get me wrong…our life, our marriage, our family – they aren’t perfect…I don’t know that anyone’s are. I do think though, that they are perfect for us and that’s all anyone can really ask right? Despite his love of material things (you know overgrown child syndrome — if I see something cool I pretty much need to buy it and play with it except I’m an adult and everything I want to buy cost tons and tons of money!), he’s a hard worker and makes sure that we all have what we need and at least a little bit of what we want.
He’s an amazing father and would do anything for the kids…yes even our son who was mine before he was his too. He’s an animal lover and that’s pretty important by my standards because I have a tendency to want to rescue everything that looks like it may be lost. He puts up with my horse obsession even though horses are a money sucking pit…they sure are beautiful though. He doesn’t even hate my blog (most of the time) and as any of you who are bloggers know, it can be very time consuming and the rewards aren’t always visible to others beside yourself. He’s even supportive of my recent weight loss journey and not because he feels I need to lose weight, but because he wants me to be the best me I can be and that means being more comfortable with myself — in this case that means dropping a few (or 50) pounds.
Does he ever get frustrated with me? Yup he does. Does it last very long? Nope it doesn’t. I think that’s normal and I think that’s healthy…without issues, you can’t make improvements to keep the relationship growing and strong. But that’s not really what the point of this post was…it was really just to say that I’m so thankful that we found each other and decided to give it a try. I hope that all though it won’t be super exciting hubby has a great day today on his birthday and I hope that we get to celebrate many, many more birthdays.
