The Kindness of My Husband

Every day I am amazed by the incredible thoughtfulness and kindness of this guy!
So blessed to call him my husband.
I'm sitting here writing while I sip a steaming cup of hot tea.  I look outside and I see the beauty of summer quietly slip away and I can't help but be incredibly thankful.  I have a million blessings in my life but the one I often forget to mention is the blessing of my husband.  Almost six years later he continues to amaze me with his kindness and thoughtfulness.

He is currently on his way to Walmart with two tired children in tow to make a return so I can rest.  Our sweet Evangeline was up a lot last night and neither one of us slept well.  We both drove 7-8 hours yesterday.  Yet he has given me a wonderful gift-the gift of time to rest.  An hour to drink a cup of tea, write in my journal, read a passage of Scripture, and take a short nap.  What a gift!  Few women are so blessed and yet how often I forget to tell him how thankful I am for him.  So honey if you are reading this thank you.

Thank you for putting my needs (and wants) above your own.  Thank you for getting up early and entertaining the children while I took my Anatomy Lab Exam Thursday morning.  You truly are my biggest cheerleader!  Thank you for the countless hours you spend investing in our children.  Thank you for the memories we are making as a family.   Thank you for your love which grows sweeter with each passing day.

Thank you for taking our whole family to a conference I really wanted to attend.  You ate frugal meals for weeks so we could afford it.  We had a great time in North Carolina.  Thank you for looking at me and saying we need to get your mom home as soon as possible even if it means skipping the rest of the conference and the fun extra day in Pigeon Forge.  (She is very sick with bronchitis.)  Thank you.  Thank you.  I don't know anyone with a heart like yours.

Thank you for your kindness which seems to grow deeper with each passing year.

You continue to amaze me.

I love you Brandon.
