Love Him

Just a heads up, this one a little mushy...

Thankful Thought #11

11. I'm thankful for my husband. I really am. He can drive me crazy sometimes like when I can't get him to focus on one topic for long or when he gets so impassioned about something his ears turn off or when he leaves dishes in the sink. It's all part of his charm, really. Plus, I know I do some things that drive him nuts, too, and I'll be the first to admit that.

But what I love is that he really cares for me and my wellbeing and he does take time to listen and understand my concerns or points of view. He is a compassionate man who genuinely wants to help, who thinks beyond his own needs, just really selfless. He challenges me in so many ways but it pushes me to take a stance, have a stronger say and I feel more confident in my opinions and beliefs. 

He knows what to say when I need to hear it and he's always trying to crack a joke to keep it light. We balance each other out and I appreciate that we're both willing to learn more about the other's interest. I've sat in a stand and yeah, I've even gotten a spike--the truth is I've enjoyed being more of a outdoor girl with him. It's a whole new world! He equally will sit through shows, listen to my creative ideas, and even offer help. I think he legitimately thinks he can help my budding choreography students but dang if he doesn't actually nail it on the head! He's helped me design props and sets for my future shows and it makes me really happy to know he shares in my dreams.

We're a good fit and I don't think I could have dreamed up a better guy. He's everything I ever wanted and everything I never knew I needed. Today I'm just extremely grateful to have him by my side.
