My wife in INCREDIBLE!!
Last week I was in the middle of writing this post, when I got a text message to go read www.branerpartyof7.blogspot.com. Sure enough, she beat me to the punch. She wrote an awesome heart felt story of how her love for me was the light of her world. She explained how marriage is hard sometimes, and you have to work, but that she was having a great season.
As many of you husbands know, that's a GOOD DAY!! So often when someone asks, "How's your marriage going?" I answer with "Well, GREAT...I think" and then I look sheepishly over at Jamie Jo to confirm or deny my answer, and she usually says something like, "Well...we're working on it." HA!!!
Isn't that just like a man!! Just when we think we've got it all worked out, our ladies bring us back to reality and show us ways we can work on our marriage.
But when I read Jamie Jo's tribute last week, I almost started crying right there in the parking lot of Barnes and Noble. I felt so encouraged that my favorite person on the planet also thought I was her favorite person.
I was thrilled to know she likes to just hang out with me as much as I like to hang out with her.
For the last few months, we've found this really cool groove where it's just fun to be together, laugh a lot, talk, and re-kindle our friendship that marriage was founded on.
It's just tough to keep that friendship thing going in the midst of several businesses, five kids, a heavy travel season, and trying to be the maintenance guy of our house. And in the middle of all the chaos, My lady and I are doing AWESOME!!
Sure, it could change tomorrow, right? After all, that's life. Today is good, but tomorrow may bring us a storm that we'll have to renew our vigor to endure. But today, I'm thankful for you Jamie Jo. You're a great wife, an incredible mom, you get more done than anyone I know, and you still manage to sit down and write a SUPER encouraging blog post.
I dig ya!!
