My Family




This may be a bit of a gushy post, but I think I have the right to be overly wordy about how wonderful my family is. God has blessed me so much with the two men that I spend most of my time with. And aren't they unbelievably handsome?


B is the best little boy I know (of course). He gives his momma kisses whenever she asks and almost always has a smile on his face. He thoroughly enjoys life and every little new thing that he learns.


He finds joy in the simple things. 


We could learn a lot about life if we looked through the eyes of children. He lights up when exciting things happen to him such as holding on to the hose and realizing that momma turned the water on. Water is amazing to him. Have we taken the simple things for granted? Sometimes I think so. Having cold running water is such a blessing and having enough of it that we can use it to play in is a big blessing. 


He's a very sweet, kind boy too. He likes to share with me and I hope that he learns how to share with all the other children. I think he'll make a wonderful big brother someday (and no I am not expecting just making an observation). 


I am so blessed to be able to stay at home with B. I wouldn't want to miss all of the milestones that he's gone through and just be able to experience him all day every day. Yes, we have our difficult days where nap time is nonexistent and nothing makes him happy because he is overly tired or teething, but it is so worth it to see the moments of pure joy in his life. 


I have the best husband ever. 


Yep. I said it. Ever.


God made him especially for me. I'm sure of that. We fit together perfectly. 


I'll probably jinx us when I say this, but we haven't ever had a full blown out fight. Disagreements, yes. But we've never yelled at each other or put each other down. We've never left each other in crying heaps or had to sleep on the couch. We talk it out and understand where each other is coming from. 


Neither of us like to fight, but we don't hold onto our feelings either. We just choose not to fight because it doesn't do any good for either of us. Fighting works for some people...it doesn't work for us. 


He supports me in everything I do.


Since I am still a full time college student my studies sometimes take the place of our evenings together. However, he knows how important my education is to me and why it is important. I want to be able to finish school and have my degree not only for me, but for my family. He thinks it is important that I finish and he encourages me. The encouragement he gives me is motivating and gives me that extra push I need to finally receive that diploma (Spring of 2013 if all goes correctly!). 


He also supports my crafts, my home projects, my blogging, my couponing, my desire to be a stay at home momma (which is his desire too) and my overall craziness at times. 


He helps out


When I've had a long day with B and have homework to finish up, my husband begins to pick up the house, finish up any laundry, wash the dishes or anything else that needs to be done in the evening. It is nice to know that he doesn't expect me to be the only one who does the housework and takes some stress off of me when I have a lot on my to-do list. 


He gives me breaks. 


I go to zumba at least twice a week so I can get a good workout in and so that I have a little time to myself. He gladly spends time with B, gives B a bath, puts B to bed and anything else that needs attending to while I am gone. 


He loves me. A lot


He always tells me that he loves me. Not a day goes by that I don't hear the words "I love you" at least five times. Usually more than that. He always makes sure that he kisses me goodbye in the mornings, when he gets home from lunch, goes back to work from lunch, and gets back at the end of the day from work. I never, ever wonder whether he loves me or not. I know because he tells me and shows me daily. 


He's a Christian man.


I am truly amazed by my husband every day. He is a man of God and God shines through him every day. He provides for our family not only financially, but spiritually. God truly blessed me through my husband and He continues to pour out the blessings for my husband and I. 


He's the best daddy. 


My husband's eyes shine every time he sees B. It's true love. Love for his son. He kisses him, hugs him, tells B that he loves him, plays with him, cares for him and is a wonderful daddy to B. I love to see my two boys together.


I love my husband more than words can express. We are perfect for each other and I thank God daily that he has given us the marriage that we have. 


I love my family. This family that God has blessed me with. This family that continues to provide joy and happiness. This family that stands together in Christ. This family that I can call mine
