I have many flaws; both as a wife and as a person. But one that is probably one of the ones that affects my husband the most (because he is one of the only people I see all day) is my random complaining. I don’t think I’m a complainer, but I when having a bad day, I will find every single thing that is wrong with everything and everyone. Hey, the first step is to admit it, isn’t it?
That’s why I want to take the time right now to be thankful. I want to type it down so I can come back to this post when I’m having one of those “what is wrong with everybody” kind of days.
My husband might be kind of messy and not very helpful around the house, but he has so many other amazing attributes that I think I need to remind myself of that. I’m going to go with the four things that Brandon does that I am most thankful for (at least today) because I don’t want this post to take all day.
First of all, he’s amazing. No need to write down why or how I know that. He’s my husband, of course I think he’s amazing.
Secondly, he always supports me. I have been all over the place since I moved to Kentucky (basically because I am trying to find myself in this new life without figure skating and away from my family) and even when I have made wild and silly decisions, he has never judged me. He always tries to reason with me and make me see both sides of the situation, but whatever I decide in the end, he is always there for me.
Third; He has taught me how to overcome stupid fears and face life with an open mind and positive attitude. He has helped me understand how life can be simple and amazing at the same time, and that what your life becomes, is only up to you; it doesn’t matter what limitations you have, the only real limitations are the ones you create in your mind.
And last, I need to thank my husband for eating the food I cook ever day. As I have mentioned before, I am not the best cook out there, and even though I try to be creative and try new healthy recipes every week, sometimes I fail. I can tell how bad it tastes, or how burnt it is… Brandon will just sit at the table, eat, and say: “Thanks, hun!” He will give constructive criticism if I ask for it (he is a way better cook than me) but will never ditch my horribly cooked meal and get himself something else.
There are so many other things that I need to thank him for! Like how great he is at helping me not work myself up about stupid things; how we can joke about anything together, make fun of each other and never get upset about it; how he used to drive for 4 hours for me to go coach figure skating for one.
Thank you, Brandon for always being here for me and supporting me. Thank you for listening to me, letting me vent when I need to (and when I don’t) and helping me become who I am.
