What a gift!
Friday, April 03, 2009
I just had to take a minute to share what a gift my husband is. He has loved me through thick and thin (well, much more thick, really) and never, ever made me feel bad about myself for being overweight. In fact, he can make me feel beautiful even on the days when I feel I'm at my worst. In all my weight loss endeavors, he has always supported me and never judged or criticized me when I didn't do everything right, or even when I gave up. He takes walks with me anytime I ask him to help me get my exercise (and of course, he knows he needs the exercise too) and he regularly tells me what a great job I'm doing.
Tonight, he made me dinner--all healthy, and extremely delicious! Sauteed spinach with garlic, grilled asparagus, and my favorite AmyLu chicken sausages. Yummy!! And to top it all off, he agreed to start using Spark People also to try to lose some weight and get healthier. (He's about 30 pounds overweight and has a lot of heart disease in the men in his family). I hope I can be as supportive to him as he is to me!
I don't know what I ever did to deserve such a wonderful gift in my life. I guess it's just one more example of God's grace!
