Maybe you read my post about my bad Friday two weeks ago. Since it's my anniversary I just want to share some things with my three readers.
  1. I am just so grateful he's HERE. He might not put his clean, folded clothes away for upwards of two weeks. He might watch too much baseball. He might get on my nerves. But he's HERE for me to get mad at him. And I have to say that it's so much better than not having him here.
  2. My friend said to me afterwards, "You always think of bad things happening to the kids, never to your husband." When I think of bad things happening, I always think of bad things happening to Scott. I can handle the kids getting hurt or getting sick because he will be with me to handle it and we'll get through it together. I know I could be strong if I needed to for the kids. I just don't want to think about life without him.
  3. You have to let the ones you love know that you love them. You can't part ways angry. Make up before you go on your way. Always make time to hug each other, even if the kids are screaming for their dinner or you're trying to get the lunches ready and the kids out the door. You will never regret spending time showing affection to each other. You will regret pushing him away when you were "too busy."
  4. You just don't ever know. Kiss them goodbye. Be excited when they come home. Always kiss goodnight. Pray together. Pray for each other.
