Thankful Thursday

Yum

Today I would like to focus on my husband Bob. He is in a pretty thankless position as my husband. He seems to get the worst of me most of the time. For example, I hurt my back at school so every night for the past two weeks I come home, make a hot pad, lay on the sofa and moan. How annoying can that be?? I really don't know, since he hasn't complained about it one bit.

Last night we went grocery shopping for his school retreat this weekend. I got together the ingredients for two meals I wasn't going to get to partake in. Do you know how hard that is??? Especially for me, the eater! Then, I remembered I am not supposed to lift or push anything over 5 pounds. Heavens, I was sure that cart weighed more than that. So poor Bob had to carry in all those groceries by himself. Complaints?? Not a one.

So today I want to say how thankful I am to have a good husband who sees my worst but loves me best. I love you, honey.

  7. Such a sweet tribute Dear Terri. He IS a good man but I am thinking he feels pretty lucky to have YOU in his life. : )
    I doubt that anyone else would put up with me, save for Bill. He is a good man. Those of us who found the good ones are lucky aren't we?
    You take care of yourself now...as another lady with a bad back, I know how painful and difficult it can be. I am sending lots of good vibes your way.

    I love the picture. You two look so good together...you have the prettiest, the cutest smile! I love it! And he is a handsome guy!

    I have the feeling that if we lived nearer to one another, we would be good buddies. : ) But, for now, we will be buddies this way!

    Sending hugs,
    Sue

  9. Awww, that was sweet! He sounds like a keeper for sure. But, I'm sure that he's not doing anything for you that you wouldn't do for him!

    Love,

  10. I'm laughing my butt off on this one! It's his food for his retreat, so why shouldn't he carry the darned groceries in? I've been torturing my beloved for 39 years come October 15...but he must like it, he's still here. Okay, gonna go read some more of your stuff, do a bit of back tracking as it were, lol...see if I can get a handle on you guys...see you again soon

  12. He's definitely a keeper!
    I had a back spasm on Monday, and my husband had to get the kids from their schools and take them to all of their activities that evening. I think I'll keep mine around, too;)
    Does he read your blog? If not, you need to show him this!
