Day 2

Today I am thankful for my husband. We have been married almost 19 years and have been through a lot together. Through the military and transitioning to civilian life. Moves and kids issues. Taking care of our parents and foster kids.

He has encouraged me to go back to school. Encourages me to grow. Oh, there are many times that he moans at my creative endeavours. But, when I decided to turn the dilapidated shed into a playhouse he was right there helping with the shingling.

When life gets crazy around here he just steps over the mess.

When I say that I want to adopt another child he goes along on the wild ride. He is a great diaper changer and does his share on the weekends. He watches the kids on Saturday mornings so I can get a breather and go to garage sales.

He supports his family. Even if it means he has to live in an apartment alone during the week because he is too far away to come home every night. We are thankful that he has a good job in these uncertain times. However, it would be nice if he could get a local job!

Best of all, he loves me, even with all my flaws. I love him too, even with all his flaws.
