Still Giving Thanks
Thursday, November 22, 2012
I am copying this from last year’s same blog assignment, but it all still applies perfectly.
“WHAT I AM THANKFUL FOR” – Thanksgiving is traditionally a time to give thanks. Write about anything you are thankful for this year, or throughout your life?
I find myself this week most thankful for my husband.
He has almost infinite patience which I test regularly (not intentionally!).
He provides a realistic point of view when mine gets skewed.
He provides a shoulder to cry on when I need it.
He never judges me.
He gives me gentle prodding to stick with the goals I've set for myself but also supports me when they become too much & I just need a break.
He gives me space when I need it.
I feel completely safe to share anything with him.
He's not particularly clever but he's very wise and gives me good advice.
I know I don't show my appreciation as often as I could but I'd be lost without him.
