Giving Thanks

21 Nov


Alright, can I be a bit sappy with this post? I’m writing this Finish the Sentence Friday post on Thursday evening which is my husband’s birthday. I’m very thankful for him & for his support. He’s been a great dad from day one. I had trouble nursing & had to pump for the first month. So my husband was there to bottle feed Andrew around the clock with no complaints. I was also suffering from some postpartum depression and anxiety and he was able to work from home and take care of Andrew and myself. He’s always been the one to give Andrew baths and he has no problem being the primary caregiver over the weekend so I can unwind and catch up on any errands and yes, even get a haircut or go shopping. He also watches the little one when I go out with my friends. He also helps with the chores and the cooking, and he’s done that even before we had the baby. He’s always been a really mellow guy who never complains, has been my best friend for the past 10 years and has always stuck up for me no matter what. I feel like I will always be indebted to him, he never asks for anything in return & believe me, I’ve tried. I guess you could say I picked a really good guy, right?

How about you? What are you thankful for? Join us at Finish the Sentence Friday & share!
