my man

To blame my lack of blogging on my new meds would be correct, but also a lame excuse, as excuses go. I have about 6 hrs of IV antibiotics a day right now. Yuck is right! This post may be a little all over the place as my brain is pretty foggy right now.

What do I have to tell you? Meds are tough right now, we already covered that. I have wonderful friends who help me and care for me. But what I want to tell you about today is the man I married.

Those of you that have met him immediately recognize how special he is, just from his smile and demeanor. He welcomes every person he meets with open arms and makes them feel at home. Even in the midst of all that we are going through his encouraging personality hasn’t changed. He is truly unique. The gifts that God has blessed him with are beyond understanding.

He is an amazing husband. With me bring so sick, he now has two jobs. He is both dad and mom. He takes care of me, the kids, the house, the bills, the laundry, the dishes, and has a full time job. I’m sure I am forgetting things about him, but he is wonderful.

Now that’s not to say its all peaches and roses. We have our problems and fights just like any married couple, but the level of respect with which he treats me makes such a difference. The regard with which he holds me is something I am so very grateful for.

I can never explain to you all that he is. You will have to meet him and shake his hand to catch even a glimpse of it.
