november gratitude {part three}


since it was thirteen years ago today that my husband and i went on our first date, i thought it would be appropriate to write about things i am thankful for that are related to him.



i'm thankful he makes me coffee every morning. i hate to say this, but i've become dependent on this legal stimulant we all know as java. and it is he who gets up first every day and puts the coffee on. every day i am awoken from the groggiest of states by the aroma and taste of it. i'd be "lost" without it. {pictured are the coffee mugs we use each morning.}

i'm also thankful that he works overtime, and then tells me he is doing it so that we can get a new computer {which we really, really need}. when he told me that, i was so surprised -- in a good way, of course. {you all know how much i've been whining about our slow computer!} what a guy!



i'm thankful that we are both healthy. although we are starting to feel creaky and old, and we are no longer the spring chickens we were in this photo that sits next to my bed {taken by my sister almost thirteen years ago}, we both have good health and are physically able to work and earn a living.

i know i already said this one, but i'm thankful that we both have jobs again.

lastly, i'm thankful that he does his own laundry, cleans the bathroom all the time, washes the dishes just as often as i do, and let's me have all the closet space i need. oh... and he lets me have my "me time" for blogging and taking photos. which leads me to another thing... he puts up with my constant photo snapping, and he never... scratch that... he rarely complains. {he even let's me take my camera with me into the grocery store.}

thanks, mr. b. i'm thankful for you.

Oh Georgia, what a beautful copple you are. And hold on to a love like that because they're rare. Luckilly I've found one that really sounds like yours. So we both blessed her girl. I love this post, giving me great ideas for one of mine to come. Hugs and happy week.

I enjoyed that all your thankfulness was for the little things. I too enjoy the little things. Isn't neat that yes we remember the extrangvant dinners, or expensive birthday presents..BUT just not like we remeber the letting us pick the movie that night, cooked dinners, bathtubs ran etc...=) Good men are rare, sounds like you have had one of the few for quite some time.
