Sweetness Overload

Leading up to Thanksgiving, I have decided to post on things I am thankful for. Gonna start with a sappy one so contain your gag reflexes cause here we go......

The Husband

He is my bestfriend and the love of my life.

Most of the time I post silly things the husband does or says but rarely do I ever say what a great person he is or how lucky I am to have him in my life. So today and everyday, I am thankful for my husband.
When I first met him, he had buckle bunnies waiting for him behind the chutes. Why you ask? Cause he was a hot bullrider guy! I always wondered how I ended up with such a goodlookin' fella.

Over the years, we have had our share of struggles and issues. Being so young when we met, we have matured in thirteen years. I am thankful we have grown together and not apart.

I am thankful that we laugh at each other all the time. He loves my goofness and believe me, I'm full of it! It's great to know that after a long day, we can come home and laugh at each other.

I'm thankful he still thinks I'm pretty after all these years and tells me so everyday. Some days I think he is full of crap and is up to something but he truly means it.

Most of all, I am thankful the husband doesn't mind doing dishes and laundry! He got the short end of the stick with me regarding domestic chores. I apologize frequently for not being a good housewife. But he doesn't mind and I am so lucky! Just the other night, he said, "Honey, I'll do the dishes while you do your blog." I mean really, how many husbands say that?!

So here's to the husband and him putting up with me all these years. I love him so and am thankful for every minute we share together.

Oh, dang, ya got me all teary eyes!!!
I am so happy to hear that there are husbands and wives who STILL love each other! It is such a rarity these days and that IS sad.
Seems like ya got a great guy there...never heard the term "buckle bunny" before, but I got it right off the bat!
Remember that each day is a learning experience and a chance to grow in your relationship...and it seems like that might include growing in girth as well around our house !!!
Here's to many more years together!

I love this post! I too think that it's very important to be thankful for our blessings in this life. And by the way there girl - have you looked in the mirror lately?? Hello!! You are a gorgeous gal yourself!! And, I think your cowboy is a looker too!! It's nice to hear that not everybody out there is a domestic goddess too - there are more important things to do other than clean house all the time - yuck!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

The W.O.W. factor said...

Did you step into my life?? (if ya did, you'd better get out while you have the chance!)
My Cowboy was riding bulls w/buckle bunnies around him too when we met!!! I still, all these years later, wonder WHY ME? (and still smirk when I think of all those BB's who missed out on my guy!)
He is also a wonder when it comes to dishes & domestiction!
I love the picture at the end...a truly happy ending to a great post!
