Because It's Been That Long

I really don't post on this blog very often, and that is pretty obvious. If you think I do then you haven't really been paying attention very well. I don't know why I don't other than I just don't take the time to say anything. But it bugs me that sometimes I gloss right over this part of life, sharing my thoughts and feelings. I decided to write a short post because despite all the things we are trying to keep up on around here (and it's A LOT!) I feel like I need to give a shout out to my family and say you guys are the best.

I have great kids. You make me smile and laugh. You let me be needed. You give me hugs when I need them. You make every day interesting and unique.

I have a great wife. You love me unconditionally. You take so much time to make sure this family has a rich and meaningful life. You make me smile every day. You are spontaneous and help me see the beauty in all of the mundane.

I even have a great dog. You keep me on my toes. You love to hang out with me. You make me laugh (a little more than you make me cry). You know just when someone needs a little love.

(Yes, Stacy just posted this picture here, but I'm working from my work computer so my choices are limited.)

Sometimes it gets really easy to forget how great I have it. I mean, it only takes a few seconds to start counting out all the good in my life, but it can be just as easy to focus on what isn't going as well as I'd like. So, this post is for you Stacy, Thing 1, Thing 2, and Scout. You are easily the best things that have ever "happened" to me and I want you to know that I don't take that for granted. I hope I can always be one of the best things that has ever "happened" to you, too.

I love you all!

Thanks, Sweetie. That's really nice of you. It's nice to feel appreciated especially when I feel like I'm not keeping up on anything, lol. It's one of those days when you feel like you're digging a hole and people keep dumping on top of you so your digging seems to do nothing but maintain status quo or less. :P So, thanks. And thanks for all YOU do. Oh, and let's go to the beach. (Emily, that's from this past September -- we're so doing it again -- the beach is so healing).

Wonderful! I agree that it's so easy to focus on the stresses and such in life. I think we should all take more time to look around and see all the good things. Thanks for the reminder!
