Gratituesday

What am I grateful for on this bright and sunny spring morning? Well, the list could definitely go on and on, but today I am most grateful for the power of a praying husband! As most of you know, I have been struggling the past 2 weeks with severe back/leg pain. I have basically been out of commission! I haven't been able to cook, clean, wash clothes, take care of Mackaylan, etc. Like I said... OUT OF COMMISSION! Anyway, through it all, Mickey has been a trooper. He has helped get me out of bed at 3:00 AM to go to the bathroom, assisted me as I tried to get dressed, brought me food and medicine as needed, and provided some sort of "normalcy" to Mackaylan's twisted schedule! Even though I appreciate all of the ways he has cared for me listed above, last night he put the icing on the cake!! As I was lying in bed, full of high power drugs to subside my current back/leg pain, I realized the presence of someone standing over me. I struggled to open my eyes, but managed to open them just enough to see it was Mickey, and his hands were holding my hands ever so gently. I mumbled something to the effect of "Hey! What'cha doing?" He looked down at me with those baby blue eyes and confidently said, "I'm praying for you!" Then he leaned down, kissed me sweetly on the lips and told me how much he loved me. A praying husband. That's what I am grateful for not only on this bright and sunny spring morning, but each and every day of the year!
