it's the little things

Sometimes I sit back and think about my life. And I smile.

I have a great life. Don't get me wrong, there are things that bother me about it, things I wish I could do but can't (because of a lack of time, money, or motivation), and things that anger or sadden me from time to time. But when I look at the big picture, I'm pretty f-ing blessed. 

I have two healthy, happy, hilarious kiddos (and another one on the way), I love my job to pieces (seriously, a college professor is the best job in the entire world), and I have amazingly supportive and caring family and friends. But the best part of my life is the marriage I have to Hus. He's stinkin' amazing. Seriously; I have very little to complain about. My life with Hus is incredible.

And it really is the little things that make it so fantastic. For instance, Hus is heading up to Maryland tonight and won't be back until late tomorrow night to go to the D.C. Auto Show with a couple of his friends. And instead of trying to leave right after his car was washed and his bags were packed (about an hour ago), he decided to bathe and otherwise occupy the kids so I could have one last hour of peace before I was flying solo. He seems to always do stuff like that. And I love him for it.

Another example is how he will always ask me if I need something every single time he stands up. He may not even be going to the room where I need something from, but still, he will ask. And no matter what I ask him for, he never acts as if it's putting him out or annoying him in any way. 

And that's not all. Hus fills my day with tons of other little things that make me feel special, loved, appreciated, and secure. It's amazing to me how so many little things can add up to a life that I am ridiculously grateful for every single day.

Although things aren't always a bed of roses around here (and believe me, they're not), as Annette Funicello once said, "Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful."
