Thankful

(Started on facebook, and decided I want to put it here so I can always remember.  I am so thankful, and have so much to be thankful for.  Happy November everyone!)

11/1/12


 One thing I am thankful for... my husband. He holds me together, is my best friend in the world, needs me (you *know* you'd be lost without me, Babe), loves me even with all the flaws I have. Sometimes I don't get how he does it... how this man loves me (me!) day after day after day. How is it that we continue to grow closer as these years fly by us... surely by now we should have come unraveled. I am thankful for Ray's parents, Rod and Kathi who brought up their boys to be men of integrity, totally rad, a dash of tenderness, and just the right kind of stubborn. And foremost, for God, our Papa in Heaven who makes all things possible, even for a girl like me to find a real Prince Charming in Humboldt County California some 12 years ago, and who gives us the grace and ability to do this marriage thing, in good times and bad, in health and sickness, when we are poor and... what was it the minister said to me during our vows... " you *do* know you are marrying a musician". Anyway, I am thankful for you, Ray, not to mention completely and utterly in love.

I am thankful for my boys. Together, they are our little pile of puppies, nipping at our heals, leaping into our arms, chewing up our things (ahem, Miles), and bringing a lifetime of joy-wrinkles to our faces. Astounded and thankful as I contemplate the blessings they bring to our lives, to our entire family, to our community of friends, and to each-other, now and for a lifetime.
