Thankful Thought #2

IMG_2386 

Today I am thankful for this guy.

He takes such good care of us.
He keeps me grounded.
He makes me laugh.
He loves me more than I deserve.
He puts up with me...that is almost worthy of sainthood!
He is adored by his kids. And he adores them too!

It's easy to get caught up in the details of everyday life.
It's easy to take for granted all that we have and the people in our lives.
It's easy to assume that he will always be around to take care of us, to love us, to love him, to make me laugh, to hold me when I cry.

Today we attended the funeral of a friend.  A 34 year old cowboy with a wife, a 7 year old and a 5 year old.  Sort of makes you realize that it can all be taken away...whether it is over the course of months or years or it could all be taken away before I finish writing this.

Either way, when life starts to creep in and make me wish for more I hope I can stop and remember to be so thankful for all that I have right now.

I am learning to stop and thank God for the simple, most treasured things in my life! My heart breaks for H, and those poor babies.

Thank you Sara! I really feel that we all have many things to be thankful for within our families, & within our communities. It's really hard to imagine this world without Davy in it, but as Andy told me about the many tributes to him...well, aren't we all thankful that we knew him!
An extra hug you way this evening in thanks for your input today.
