I was reading a book that encourages concentrating on the best most positive parts of our lives. I have a great husband and a wonderful marriage. Before you think that I must be a newlywed I'm not. We will be married 22 years next anniversary and we met 28 years ago this month. When I get up at 4:30 AM to go to work he gets up too even though hes retired now. He makes my breakfast, starts my car and in the winter he shovels a path to my car. He takes me to work if he thinks the roads are bad. He does the dishes, helps with the laundry, does the yard work, maintains the cars, and helps with cleaning the house. Recently when I have had problems with my back hes given me massages twice a day. The other day when I was depressed over my oldest son I cried in his arms and he was very supportive even though he doesn't get along with him and for good reason. They had a very difficult relationship over the years and my oldest wanted us to split up. My oldest thought if I wasn't with his dad I should be alone although he didn't think his dad needed to stay alone. He adopted my other son who was rejected by his biological father he would have adopted both but my oldest didn't want to be adopted. We had 7 children together. He was my labor coach all 7 times and we have raised several teens together. He still opens doors for me and if he sees me lifting anything heavy he carries it for me and says I should ask for help. He buys roses for my birthday, our anniversary and many other special days. I often tell my friends that even when other things go wrong I can always count my husband and our marriage as a great blessing in my life!
