One more day of November. That’s crazy talk! I thought September sped by, being the month we got married and my birthday, but I think November takes the cake in speediness… Which is totally fine because I’m happily embracing the holiday spirit and cannot wait for this weekend to start decorating! Bring on the merriment and mistletoe 😉
The past week has been busy with Ryan’s surgery, celebrating Thanksgiving, and balancing everything else in between… And my body is definitely feeling it, mentally and physically. Evidence: the stress sore that’s growing on my bottom lip. It is naht pretty. But, I’m a mother [of a furry son] and I’m a wife, it’s my duty to care for my boys and I wouldn’t have it any other way. With that being said, it’s Thankful Thursday- thank you Jessie for hosting another wonderful week!
This week I am thankful for Ryan [*cue the sappy music*]. Not once has he complained, whined, or pitied himself since his surgery.
He’s asked for help and I’ve quickly lended a hand… In sickness and in health, until death do us part.
He makes me smile.
He makes me laugh.
He makes me feel appreciated.
He makes me feel loved.
He consoles me when I’m upset.
He comforts me when I feel sick.
He celebrates my accomplishments.
He joins me in my happiness.
He helps me when I’m in need.
He listens when I speak.
He supports me in my endeavors.
He makes me feel beautiful.
He works hard at his career.
He always gives it his best effort.
He thinks of others before himself.
He is a great daddy to his [furry] son.
He is a great husband.
For all that he does for me, for both of our families, and for our future, I am so very thankful. Always and forever ♥
