Thankful 30: Post 1 - My Husband

The first thing I'm thankful for is my husband, Doug. He is the love of my life. Yeah, we fight and have disagreements, but who in a relationship doesn't?

He has worked so hard to take care of me and Keira. He has worked jobs that put him out in the wet and cold during winter, at high risk for injury, up early and out late, just so I could stay home with our little girl. I'm happy to say that he is starting a new job soon which I know he has wanted for a long time.

There are so many little things he does for me, I couldn't even begin to count them. He makes me coffee and always gets it right. He makes sure the cars are in good running condition so that we're safe (that one's not so little). He makes sure things around the house get fixed. He watches Keira on Saturday and Sunday mornings so I can sleep late. He brings the pellets in the house just so I don't have to go outside in the cold. He's even gone camping though he hates it. He does it because I like it.

He tells me I'm beautiful, even at the times when I couldn't feel less. He tells me I'm a great mother when I doubt what I'm doing. He holds me, when I need comfort, strength or just a hug. He makes me laugh. He makes me smile. He puts up with my whims, mood swings and craziness. He believes in me. He gives me hope. I'm thankful because he loves me.

Happy April

I know, I'm slacking on the blogs posts lately. I'll update soon with pics of Keira, I promise. I've been busy with a bunch of different stuff. Cooking, cleaning, crafting, laundry, Keira, etc. Sometimes, I just lose track of the days.

Anyway, since April has 30 days, I decided it was going to be the perfect month for a Thankful 30. A post a day telling what I am thankful for. It's easy to focus on the things we don't have, whether it's a job or a big screen TV and feel like we're missing out. I'm choosing to focus on the things I do have.

I'll still be making regular posts, so never fear, you will see plenty of pics of Keira.
