I have been looking forward to telling you everything that I am thankful for today. This one's easy... I am thankful for this guy.
Today Allen celebrates his 40th birthday. So first off, let's give credit where credit is due: I am thankful to my sweet mother-in-law for getting him here. And for raising him the way that she did so that I could have such a great man for my husband.
I won't get into too much detail here, but let me tell you a few reasons why I am thankful for this man of mine.
I am thankful that he is service-minded. He is always going out of his way to do kind things for others, even when he doesn't always have the time to do so.
I am thankful for his ability to make or fix or build or do ANYTHING he sets his mind to. If he doesn't know how to do something, he's not afraid to learn.
I am thankful that he loves kids as much as I do.
I am thankful that he has such an amazing family which I have called my own from the start. I have the best in-laws on this planet!
I am thankful that he works hard and takes pride in a job well done.
I am thankful that he knows when to be serious... and when to be silly. It is so fun to have a spouse who laughs at my jokes and makes me laugh as well.
I am thankful he is mine.
Happy Birthday, Allen! Here's to many, many more years to celebrate together.
