I wonder if it will ever NOT be weird to have him gone on a holiday? Probably not, even when I prepare for it. You just really can’t get over that little piece missing no matter where the celebration is happening. We have a big dinner planned for tomorrow when he’s home and we’re doing it up different by grilling and smoking the turkey. Something to look forward to
But with how much life changes each year I wanted to post things I’m thankful for today because it’s so easy to look at the negative.
** I’m thankful for his job that he still loves.
** I’m thankful for the time his job gives us as a family to go run off camping together at odd times
** I’m thankful for the fact that his job gives us time together during weekdays to go shopping or to the range or other things that are too busy on weekends to enjoy much.
** I’m thankful for the support of our many friends and especially the other wives. No one gets that you aren’t “complaining” when you just have to vent about work, like another wife going through the same thing daily.
** Most importantly I’m thankful for every morning he comes home from work, even if I wanted to sleep in on the weekend. I’ll take every day I can get
Happy Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for?
