Gratitude

Some days I feel so tremendously grateful for this amazing life and family that I have. Today is one of those days. As many of my friends and family know, my life was almost very different than it is today. I was engaged to someone who was all wrong for me. I thought I knew what love was. Then Ron came into my life. He is a gift. He has taught me what love really is. We have been married for more than 13 years now and I love him more with each passing day. Not only is he a better husband than I had ever dared to dream about but he is an amazing father. Today was a great example of both of those. I wanted to get out of the house alone (with baby of course) so since we are a one car family we all drove to the restaurant where I was meeting a friend for lunch. He then took the girls across the street to go see a movie while I got to visit with my friend. Brave brave man to take 2 young girls by himself to a movie. After the movie was over we all drove to the pool. He then took the girls swimming for the rest of the afternoon. Since J is so little I couldn’t go. Again, brave man, he managed both girls by himself all afternoon while I got to go browse in some stores. When he and the girls got out of the car to go to the pool, I was watching as he carried R in one arm, held the swim bag in the same arm and held S hand with the other, I was just in awe. What could I have possibly done to deserve a man like this? After 14 years together I still think he is the sexiest man alive and I am so grateful that he is mine!

To my best friend, partner, lover, soul mate, co-parent; thank you for being mine. I love you more than words can ever express.
