Today I'm thankful for Marcus...#1

On facebook there's a challenge to post in your status what you're thankful for everyday until thanksgiving. I happen to think that's a fantastic idea and lends itself well to blogging. So starting today until thanksgiving one post a day about what I'm thankful for. It's good for ones mental health I think to sometimes focus on the positive.

Today and everyday I am thankful for Marcus. I don't know what I would do without him. He's supportive in all of my goals, dreams and aspirations and even when I don't think I can do it, he pushes me to keep going. He's an amazing dad just like I always knew he would be and I love listening to him talk to and sing to the babies.

 He has the best sense of humor that many don't get to see because he's so shy.

 I admire how hard he works to support us while going to school full time, and he seems to have never ending patience with just about everything and everybody.

(He was doing homework at the hospital while I was there on bedrest).

 He tells me I'm beautiful everyday, he prays on a daily basis (something I just learned about him) and he smiles all the time everyday. He also writes notes in my notebooks for school, so when I open them there's a surprise message from him. He understands my sense of humor, goes along with my many crazy ideas, and laughs all the time. I am eternally and forever grateful and thankful to have him in my life.

(High school homecoming our senior year. It was crazy hair and dress up day or something).
We've already been through so much together and I look forward to the many coming years.
