I have to say, I have a really super husband. He's smart, funny, a great dad, a wonderful husband, and of course I think he's pretty easy on the eyes. But beyond that, he's really supportive.
This morning I woke up in our guest room. Not because of anything weird, just because at four o'clock this morning my oldest had a nightmare and ended up in bed with my husband and I. And let me just say, there is just NOT enough room in our bed for two adults and a squirmy, stretched out four year old. I took the hint once R whispered "Mommy, I'm getting squished, can you move over?" and I fell out of bed. Needless to say, I was more than happy to move to the guest room!
Then at six o'clock I woke up (half an hour before my alarm was set to go off) when my husband came in to check on me. I'm a light sleeper and so I heard him come in and woke up...no fault of his own. But once I was up, he asked if I wanted to go for a jog earlier than usual. Today is going to be really hot, and he thought I might be more comfortable if I went earlier. Also, he had to go into work earlier than usual and didn't want me to feel rushed or want to skip my morning workout.
So I went. And it was GREAT! At 6:12 this morning I started my workout and it was already hot. In fact, when I came home 30 minutes later, I was a disgusting, sweaty mess. But I sure felt good, and it would have been so much hotter if I had waited until the sun got much higher.
After my husband went to work, I forgot that he had a really big day at work today. He had an important meeting and I forgot until he called me later to tell me how it went. It went well, and we spent twenty minutes dissecting what was said, and mentally planning what it might mean for us (potentially really cool stuff).
I appreciate my husband tremendously. I appreciate that he remembers my personal goals and encourages me even on his busiest of days. Tonight I'm going to cook us a special meal...a healthy, balanced meal so that we can BOTH celebrate. We'll celebrate the strides that we're making towards achieving each of our goals, and how much better our goals are making our family.
