Tuesday's Tribute..It's Time To Give Back
Today I am going to thank my husband Jim for never giving up.
Jim and I met over 21 years ago when we were young and naive and a little crazy. oh Jim , do you miss those days? We met and got married after only knowing each other for 3 months straight out of high school. And through good and bad we have been together everyday since...
I know as a mom it was not been easy for me to be young and a mom to a child who was so sick you did not know day to day if he would live or die. I know it would of been easier to run away...fast and maybe not look back. And while it would be wrong...many of young men have done just that. But not my Jimmy.
We have not always done things right or perfect. In fact some days it has been plain ugly. But we did it, didn't we Jimmy? Some of the issues with our lives have been harder on Jim then myself..or maybe I should say we have dealt with it in very different ways. Sometimes I would think and yell that Jim made things harder then they had to be....but he never gave up. And I have a feeling he will be right here with us for the rest of our days.
It is no secret that I am not well right now. My husband cares. He cares with every fiber of his being. And some days that all I need to know to be okay. On days when I feel alone or sad....I know Jim is here and willing to listen. And lately he seems so gentle with his ways with me. Over protective and sweet . I see a strong man being my husband and being a dad and yet a vulnerable at the same time.
So Thank You Jim for taking such good care of me and our family. No we do not do it perfect but we get the job done...and that is what counts.
I love you more then you know. Hey wanna do some laundry when you get home..LOL
