My husband totally rocks. We have been married for 30 years already. He is a lighthouse, a rudder, a shining beacon. His faith is strong, his love for me is constant. He is faithful and steadfast. He is funny, bright, fascinating, loving, and a joy. I am truly blessed. Today it is fitting that we celebrate Thanksgiving. It is a special Thanksgiving, because today is his birthday as well. How delightful that I can celebrate his day on this day. Happy birthday, dear Jim. I love you with all my heart.
I celebrate his devotion, his hard work, his laughter, and his love. Our faith, and our love for each other, and our devotion to each other and God make our home a piece of heaven. God sustains us. Today, I am overflowing with thanksgiving, for the gift that my husband is to me, every single day.
Some years we travel for Thanksgiving–typically to see his family. I have so many happy memories of those Thanksgivings—preparing the food with my dear sister-in-law Jayne. We always play “Alice’s Restaurant” at some point. The perfect Thanksgiving fun song. The clan is always wandering through, the laughter of our children rising above everything. I will truly miss being with Jayne. This year we will visit them via phone. We will be here, they will be there. But our hearts are forever entwined. She will be hosting the Chicago people, she always does!
I will be rejoicing in the togetherness of the 3 of us, here in a place called home. Happy Thanksgiving ~
As for us, we will be home; in my home of lov.
