~Counting Blessings~

So what is that saying...?? "We make plans and God laughs." It's kind of the story~of~my~life! I had so looked forward to five weeks in Florida. No sweater. No coat. No hat & gloves. First week, I was fighting some kind of bug with a fever. Weather was rather chilly (for Florida) so no great loss. Second week started to warm up. Don't now how else to build up to this so I'll just tell you, 'I fell & broke my foot.' Actually, not only that...but as I was going down, I managed to hit my eye (lid area) & ended up with a HUGE black & blue (and PURPLE) bruise. I really looked AWFUL! So I ended up in a half~calf cast on crutches non-weight bearing...soooo, you know what that means, right? NO pool. NO ocean. Oh My was a HUGE bummer, to say the least!! So, in my misery (that's being a little dramatic, I admit it)...I reflected on what happiness is all about. For ME, it's about being with all the people I love! It's about realizing that 'it could have been worse', I could have done damage to my hip implant which could have required surgery. Thankfully, I didn't. Happiness is about purely being thankful for what I have rather than focusing on what I DON't have. So on that note, I would like to tell you a little bit about the guy with whom I share my life. He is my husband of 17-1/2 years and is an awesome father and grandfather. So to simplify matters, I'll tell you "TEN THINGS I LOVE ABOUT HIM":
1). He loves me.
2). He doesn't ever panic, he thinks things out thoroughly.
3). He takes care of business...& I mean ALL business that needs taking care of.
4). He doesn't make a big deal out of anything...ever.
5). He's organized.
6). He's funny.
7). He's loving & nurturing.
8). He is super~protective.
9). He's strong (like bull). :)
10). He treats me like a princess.
I'm a lucky, lucky girl. I don't know why I deserve such a good man, but I'm thankful every single day. And I love him completely. He holds my life in his hands & NEVER makes me feel like a burden, even when I am one. So I just wanted everyone to know how important he is to me and why I love him more than anything in the world!
