My Husband Rocks

I wanted to start an "I'm Thankful For..." album this year so earlier this week I printed out a few "Thanksgiving-y" shapes for us to write our thoughts on. Last night we sat down together and wrote 4 things each that we are thankful for. Even without looking at the handwriting, it is so obvious who wrote each thought. As I've mentioned, I really dislike any type of creative writing (which you can probably tell from reading this blog). Dave's are beautifully written and mine, well mine sound as if a 4th grader wrote them. Proof:
Dave: I am thankful that the first sight I see every morning is the most beautiful blue eyes and warmest smile in the world. I am greeted with love and beauty every day.

Mine: For my job, as many people have lost theirs.

Dave: I am thankful to be surrounded by supportive people who no matter what I've done, refuse to give up on me.

Mine: For my family and friends.

David: I am thankful for the fact that my life is so enriched with gifts, miracles, and love, that I can honestly thank God for every day.

Mine: For my loving, understanding, patient, supportive, and talented husband.

David: I am thankful that I am married to the woman I dreamt about my whole life.

Mine: For having a fulfilling and creative outlet that not only allows me to express myself, but makes it possible to connect with other creative and resourceful people.

Ok, I gotta say that last one is pretty good - too bad I didn't write it. I sat in my chair and stared at the wall trying to figure out how to put my thoughts into words. So I told my husband what I was thinking, he wrote it down for me, and I copied it.

My husband rocks because he has a way with words and because he took this little project seriously and wrote things that our kids will be able to read some day (he can be a little.....let's say silly, sometimes). ;o)

I love this idea. I asked my guests to bring 1 picture of something they were thankful for. I made cute little picture holders for each of their photos and half of the people didn't participate. Made me sad. I didn't want to let anyone feel left out so I didn't do the activity I had planned. It's great when people take fun things like your book seriously. I am sooo thankful you had a nice day together.

Awesome idea! Don't sell yourself short though. Your ideas may have had less words, but they were just as BIG in thought and meaning!
