I have spent the last week or so without my Husband. He was spending the week with his Dad being a Cowboy in the desert. 🙂
So you know the saying “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”? Well, I can assure you this is true. It puts everything that became , well, a bit fuzzy – into sharp focus. And all the while, blurring the not-so-endearing qualities.
All of the things I am dependent on him for become crystal clear. The LONG list of things that he does on a daily basis for me, and for our family, is undeniable.
I missed him for that reason and because I really enjoy his company, his humor, just him.
But we made it through the week and after his plane was delayed 2 or 3 times, he finally made it home and our family was complete again. ♥
Watching him teach our eldest Son how to ride his bicycle for the first time ever without training wheels was truly magical… my heart nearly burst. His patience amazes me every. single. day. He has taught me to be a better human being, just by being himself.
I cannot believe how truly lucky I am to have Daddy P in my life, how lucky I am to have the privilege to share my life and my family with such a man. I have said it many times before but feel the need to say it again and again because I am overflowing with love and respect for this man.
So thank you, Daddy P, for being so damn awesome. Seriously, you are my everything.
And you are appreciated. So very appreciated.
