A Reminder

Do you ever have those moments when you get slapped across the face with that feeling for your spouse that reminds you exactly why you married them in the first place? I love my husband. We get along really well. He puts up with me and all my crazy moods. And we work well together as a partnership. But today I had one of those moments that just took it to a more focused and heightened level.

I woke up in a sour mood. I had a long do list today. Luckily I felt pretty good this morning and was able to get much of it done before I ate and felt yucky. But I was still in a bad mood. Especially about an upcoming trip we are taking. Jon on the other hand was feeling rather excited about this little trip and was scouting out zip lines and alpine slides and all that to do while we were there.

I was being a downer about it. I just felt like I didn't want to travel when I am feeling so yuck. Jon would not be pulled down with me. His silly optimism is infectious. By mid morning he had perked me up and reminded me of just one more reason I love him so much. He is fun. He makes me happy. He provides the silly we so desperately need around here sometimes. It turned out to be a good day after all. And the thanks for that go to my hubby. Love him.

I love that! Whenever we talk about eternal marriage in YW, I tell my girls that I plan on laughing through eternity with my hubby. What's a relationship without a sense of humor, eh?

are you headed to UT this weekend? Morgan and the two "bigs" are up there. ranch time and byu football!

I'm glad Jon could swing you out of grouch mode. especially difficult with a pregnant woman.

xx!

So many times we take for granted the people who love us most. Just this week I was looking back at my wedding pictures doing the same thing....reminding myself how much I truly do love my man. We've been married 5 1/2 years and I love him more every day....If that is even possible.
