” I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been” Thank you Jason Mraz
As I was giving my husband a kiss goodbye this morning, all I could think of was I am so lucky.
Here are just a few of the reasons!
He supports me! I mean really supports me. Supports all my crazy ideas, dreams, goals. Supports me if I need therapy, need to write, when I want to work, when I want to be with the kids.
He shows me affections. At the end of a long day, while we are sitting on the couch watching TV together, he holds my hand. He may even, scratch my back or put his arm around me!
He works his butt off! I get to get the kids ready for school every morning, take them to school and pick them up from school now. It wasn’t always like this, but now that we have figured it out…it is.
He shows up for his children. Baseball games, watching them sing at church, driving hours away to watch a dance recital, basketball or football game. Standing by their side during their school open house, fundraising events and playing video games with them. He is an active participant in each of the 6 kids lives, because he wants to be!!
After some deep conversation with women I am close to, I realize that not everyone has a partner like this. Where, I can’t tell what other people need from their significant other. THIS is what I need, a partner, a true supporter and a cheerleader (even if it is a pretty silent one)!
It is often that Paul and I reflect that we wouldn’t know how lucky we were if we weren’t in this for the 2nd time together. Sometime you have to go through the brokenness of the first in order to see all the special things in your relationships instead of the nit picky things!
