Our Gift

March 8th, 2009 Posted in gratitude, received

I haven’t done a gratitude list in a long time, and it’s about time I do one, don’t you think? As part of this site’s policy, I want to recognize all the good things in my life, and visualize all the beautiful things to come. All positive energy, no negative energy. I want to keep it that way. Today’s general gratitude is for my loving husband.

You see, Dave and I have been best friends for approximately 12 years. We’ve been together for 10 of those years. We’ve been married for almost 2 of those years. It’s been a really awesome journey — hardly any fights or arguments (some disagreements, of course), and always respect and communication. Our “status” in our family have always been ongoing and transient, but what always remains consistent is our love for each other and our dedication to each other. We went from best friends to lovers to roommates to engaged couple to married couple to mommy and daddy. All in the span of 12 years. Now, I’m a working mommy and he’s a stay-at-home daddy. While he could have argued to apply for jobs in IT, he didn’t, because he wanted to stay home with our baby because I had to work. I totally appreciate and am grateful for this role he is so willing to play. He’s a great daddy to our Lily Bean, and I’m grateful that he is so wonderful with her, able to pick up the responsibility where many men fall short at. He willingly takes care of her, and willingly dedicates his whole days to her. I always knew I could trust him, but I didn’t realize the extent of my love for him and my trust in him until I saw him become a father to our baby girl. He’s been there since day one. He’s been loving, kind, present since day one. He’s been a loving, doting father since day one. Since we found out we were pregnant. He talked to the belly, he held her on the day she was born, he took care of her and woke up with her in the middle of the night when I couldn’t. I couldn’t have chosen a better father for my daughter. He is seriously our gift from the universe.
