Thankful..... for Fifteen

Happy Thanksgiving. There is so much to be thankful for and this day is another reminder for me to not take things for granted. I am truly thankful for so many, many things. But today, I am thankful for a fantastic 15 years of being married to my best friend.
I'm thankful I get to see little moments like these.

I'm thankful he teaches our boys just what every boy wants to learn.

I'm thankful for his incredible smile and his infectious laugh.

I'm thankful he enjoys pushing the kids down the hill on their sleds. Over and over again.

I'm thankful he knows how to take advantage of little moments.

I'm thankful he has a sensitive side.

I'm thankful he can fix just about anything.

I'm thankful he is willing to teach his kids something new.

I'm thankful he has an adventurous side.

I'm thankful for the love he shows to our children.

I'm thankful he likes to see his kids having a fun time.

I'm thankful he learned the art of being a bucking bronco.

I'm thankful he is an incredibly hard worker who has an immense desire to not only provide for his family but to ensure that his children grow up knowing how important it is to have a good work ethic.

I am really thankful for the days he lets me sleep in. Wink wink. Hint hint. I couldn't think of a better anniversary gift. The gift of sleeping in!

Thanks for 15 great years.
