It's Thankful Thursday and I just have to say I am so very thankful for the man I get to spend life with. Even after almost 38 years of marriage and 42 years of being together, he is still such an incredible blessing to me. Not a day goes by when I don't realize just how lucky I am. Thoughtful, patient(he definitely needs it being married to me), tolerant, fun, loving and kind. Not only the very best husband, but a wonderful dad and Papa as well as brother and a great friend. Yesterday, we took a drive to a quilt store to get fabric for our quilt and then even went to Joanns. I took him by a model home to show him a bench I want him to build for my birthday present(yes, he's very gifted too)and he said no problem. Later, I showed him a quilting ironing board(to enlarge the ironing board for quilts)that I want him to make and he told me to buy the cover so he'd have the right dimensions. We happened to compare the costs of our hobbies, because quilting can get expensive, but he said his golf is way beyond my quilting.
So this morning, we are both home and had a wonderful breakfast. So many friends are battling with cancer or other life threatening illnesses and I realized we just don't know how long we've got on this earth. This year was our year to go to Kauai, but he decided that we would pass on it and use the $$$ for other things. I thought he'd be so disappointed, but we both have other adventures we want to go on. If you have family close to you and a person you share your heart with, make sure you tell them on a regular basis how lucky you are.
So today, I lift my heart to my beloved and say I'm so glad to be married to him.
Always and forever,
