Over at Minivan Momma they’re starting the celebration early by giving thanks on Thursdays. I thought I’d join in.
I’m thankful today, for Mark.
I know I know you’re rolling your eyes and grumbling about how sappy I am and about how of course you’d be thankful for a boyfriend bla bla bla fishcakes.
Well, sure. I don’t deny any of that.
But during these past few months, as his job ramped up to MockFourCrazy and mine began to slowly eat my lunch one bite at a time, he has been steady and solid. He never yells when we are completely out of clean whites. He will go to the CVS at 7am to get catfood when I haven’t gotten to the store for the week. Last night, as I crashed dead before 10pm he stayed up and did laundry.
The first words out of his mouth this morning were, “you have allstaff in oklahomacity and you have to wear black pants and they are in the dryer”
Because ya know, zero things clean in this house as of yesterday.
I am thankful to have a partner in this crazy, even though Sammy has decided that he loves Mark more than Little Friskies, I am thankful that—while I know I can navigate this alone—I don’t have to.
I don’t ever want to take him for granted yet I know that will happen as is human nature. Today however…I place it here.
Thankful Thursday indeed.
In clean black pants.
