But rather than sit around feeling sorry for myself, I got up, brushed my teeth, took a shower, walked the pups, grabbed coffee and settled into work, determined to make the best of the day. Of course I am half way through a box of Kleenex and keep running to the bathroom, but things could be worse. Much worse.
And for some reason when feeling like total garbage, I become reflective. I think about all of the health crap I have gone through (and will probably continue to go through) but how lucky I am to not have anything worse to deal with, and to have an extremely supportive and caring husband and family that would do anything for me.
Enter Shaun. We have a saying that we must have done something right in life for God to have given us one another. That has never been more true. Every day, I am constantly amazed by him and the amount of love he has for not only me, but for our 'girls' i.e. the pups, Hailey and Coaly. He takes such good care of us before, during and after working long, crazy days and never once does he ask for anything or leave us when we need him. He's never raised his voice and he is always there. And we don't tell him thank you enough, so this is our (that's right, the girls are now co-authoring this post) public thank you.
I must have done something right :)
Looking back at our first wedding anniversary below, it's hard to believe we've celebrated three more already. I can't wait to see what life has in store for us :)
