OT - Thankful Thursday
We're closing in on the weekend, STalkers. C'mon, end-of-work-day Friday!!!
Father's Day is this weekend, so I'm focusing on the men in my life. I am thankful for:
- My Dad. Honestly, the man is amazing and has been my entire life. I cannot remember a time when I wasn't dogging his heels to watch him fix something or tackle some chore/repair. Cars, plumbing, drywall, electric, roofing, gardening, livestock, cooking... you name it; the man did it. He always had time to listen to his kids and show them HOW to do something. His patience is endless. He's intelligent, stubborn, loyal, hardworking, funny, strong, interesting, resilient, humble, and downright amazing. Watching him care for my Mom during her long illness and decline proved that he meant his wedding vows of "... for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part." He was loving, patient, and gentle and kept her out of a nursing facility. Mom would never have gotten such wondeful care anywhere else. Now I see him with my SM and witness the same devotion, love, and care. If I am ever half the person my Dad is, I will be doing pretty darn good in life.
- My DH. DH lost his father at age 4 (alcoholic). He recently told me, "I grew up trying to be the man my father SHOULD have been." Well, he succeeded beautifully. If I didn't know better, I'd think my Dad had raised him. Thankfully, BioHo was a freaking moron who had little appreciation for MY sexy hubby. And between DH and Dad, if they can't fix it? It's f*cked!
- The St. Louis Blues! Woo hoo!!! I am SO excited that the winners of the Stanley Cup will be in the U.P. to play an exhibition game against the Detroit Redwings. Woo hoo!!!
Why are YOU thankful?
