TOP Week 1: Husbandface.

Words of thankfulness. Be a part.

 My first note for Thankful on Paper was to my Husband. Why? 'Cos he's pretty frikken amazing.

If you read his guest post, or the  word "SexBee" has any meaning for you, then you probably know what I mean.

When we met in early 2005, we were both a mess. 
A jaded, scarred, and suspicious lot.
 There are times I am still dumbfounded that we managed to make it this far, but we had an unexplainable (if I'm honest-Strange) bond. 
No matter what happened, or how hard we tried to ignore it--it couldn't be shaken off.

Thank goodness we both had the sense to recognize how rare that is...  

It wasn't until we got married that I realized that I had never experienced unconditional love in action before. I had known only love that came with strings and caveats. He has shown me the life-changing difference between the two, and I am continually astounded at the gift that THAT is...

I am an all-or-nothing kind of creature. Survive or be killed, that's me.
He has a bit of a sunnier disposition....a bit more dramatic too, but whatever...(teasing. sorta.)
He keeps me balanced and from despairing in Humanity, a lot...
(You'd be surprised at how handy that can be!)

He is my best friend, and my Life Buddy. He is my Heart.
I am so Thankful he is mine.

He has patience when I do not.
He finds optimism when I can't.
He forgives me when I won't forgive myself.
I am so Thankful that he is mine.

My husband is not a Perfect man, any more than I am am a Perfect woman, but he has made me feel like I am perfection in his eyes. After so many years of being told that I was nothing, and worth even less, I can't even express how that has saved me.
I am so Thankful that he is mine.
I am so Thankful I am his.

(I love you, Querido.)


PS> It's not too LATE! Get your THANK on!

This is precious, Court. I really love this. I'm so happy for you and Will. You two are awesome together and being around you two it's obvious that he loves you so much and that you bring the best out in each other.

I love you BOF!! You're like the perfect salt & pepper shaker set. Peas in a pod, no doubt. Before I even knew you, he had pointed you out at karaoke and said with this unfakable tone of awe, "She's... she's just incredible." And I knew he was a wise man, not just smart, at that moment. You two are on a very (sadly) short list of my favorite couples of all time. Rock on, the both of yas!
