I have been trying to keep up with a daily thankful list on my Facebook page this month. Try is the operative word because sometimes I am too tired or forgetful to post. It has been lonely tonight. I had hoped that my husband was going to be home for Thanksgiving, but it looks like another holiday without him. I miss him. The kids do too, but I am thankful for his sacrifice, his time away from me and the kids to do his job. I am thankful that I married the man I did. He is more of an introvert. Communication is sometimes lacking, but he adores me. I can see how much he loves me in his eyes, in the way he rubs my neck because it always hurts, in the way he drives home for an overnight sometimes just because he could tell by talking to me on the phone that I have had a rough day. I love how he thinks I am beautiful, even when I can’t always see it when I look in the mirror. I love that he is okay that I am a tomboy. I love that he lets me sleep in when he comes home and the laughter he gets the kids to make that wakes me from my slumber. I love that he is a good father and that he tries to be a parent even when he is gone. Most of all, I love the way he hugs me and holds me tight, makes me think I am the most precious thing to him.

I am thankful I found him. I am thankful for the two beautiful kids he helped create. What are you thankful for?
