Life Starts Now.

Living each day to the fullest, because we know first-hand just how fragile life can be.

Needless to say, the last three months have shifted my priorities a bit....Ok, a lot. I'm a part-time mom, a part-time wife, I have only one chore to do a day, and sometimes that doesn't even get done. My entire existance, it seems, has been placed on hold. AND, for the first time in my life, I feel important. Like, really important. And missed. It is very apparent that a household and family can go bananas without a mama. Kids go into shock, the house doesn't look, feel, or smell right, the husband is forced to do all sorts of things he wouldn't normally do...ummmm, SCARY. Am I patting myself on the back here? Ok, maybe, but that's not what this post is about. It's about the man who picked up the slack when I left.

For the last 12 weeks, my husband has gone above and beyond the call of duty. During the week, he's at home, working and taking care of the house and cat...mowing the lawn, and realizing just how fast a big house can need dusting. He's getting recognized, with a nationwide company for his good work & ethics. He has spent hours in the garage, setting up my pottery studio, so that it's ready for me to jump on in when I get home. He's been working on my business website. He's taking care of finances, which are OUT OF CONTROL,.....(and it's just the beginning...) Commuting on his weekends, he's driving back and forth, with a smile and a good attitude. I am amazed at his composure when he comes up after a long day of work and wants to immediately go see Joel. It has to be exhausting walking in his shoes. He's taking special time to do romantic things, and cover my emotional needs, so that our relationship can remain a rock, regardless of circumstance. He has been my 3/4 when I can only be 1/4.

I want you to know how truly grateful I am to have you by my side. To give me piggybacks when I can't take another step. I am your #1 earthly priority, and I say that with pride, because I know you don't take that committment lightly. I am so lucky to have you for my husband, and the father of my children. I promise, you'll have your wife back soon.
