I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend.
We just had our 8 year anniversary and I love him more today than ever.
I was tired and run down today. I had a headache and was just feeling really drained.
So what did he do?
Well, he forced me to sleep in. Then when I woke up he had a warm breakfast waiting for me. He took the girls to church and made me stay home to sleep and rest and have some alone time. Then when they got home he made lunch. And he put Lilly down for a nap. Then he cleaned the house. Then he provided us with a yummy dinner. Then he cleaned some more.
Do you know what I did?
I slept. I read my kindle. I did my nails. I rested. But mostly...I just thought about how unbelievably lucky and blessed I am to have him. To have this man. This man who works two jobs and then still finds time to take care of all his girls.
To have my best friend as my soul mate is such a blessing.
I hope I can be as good of a spouse as he is someday. I'll keep trying. But he'll probably keep winning. Because he's good. Very, very good.
And I am lucky.
