I've been lazy.

Lazy and unmotivated to be exact. I've neglected updating a lot of things online. At least 3 days this week my kids have had me on the verge of pulling a Britney and shaving my head in a fit of psychotic frustration/helplessness. We had an amazing weekend at a beautiful cabin on a lake with friends. Then the following two days back home my little angels tried my patience on every level imaginable. It was a rough couple of days getting back into the swing of things, but I think we are pretty much back to normal now.

It's times like these that I am really grateful for having such a wonderful and loving husband. He will step in and intervene, take charge, and just do what needs to be done. I am so grateful for him. He can make my absolute worst day amazing just by coming home and running interference. He takes charge of the kids, and when everyone has wound down for the night he gives me a nice back massage and pushes all the worries away.

God is one smart Omniscient Being. He sent Matt into my life, and somehow put it in my head that, no matter what, this was the man I was going to end up with, no matter who told us it might be a bad idea. We've proved them wrong. He has made my life better.

It's been the best idea I ever had. We've made four beautiful, if sometimes rotten, children. We've been together 8 (not counting the almost 2 prior to marriage) amazing years. Matt is my rock. The one person in the whole world that, no matter what, I know I can always rely on, always lean on, always trust in every way.

I am sad for all the people in the world who don't have their Matt. I've literally shed tears over the marriage troubles of other people. I wish that they all had someone like Matt. Someone who will show support and share every hardship and joy. Someone that they can trust implicitly. I know that there are always going to be people who get divorced, or never get married... but in a perfect world everyone would have something as amazing as what we have.

I am suppose what I am really getting at here is that I am so, so grateful, and so thankful for what God has seen fit to bless me with. Matt is one of the most exceptional men I have ever met, and I am proud and humbled to call him Mine.

Daily Diatribes

A blog from a friend of mine. I'm lazy so I'm not going to write extensively about how awesome she is, I'm just going to throw the link out there and let her work speak for itself. I hope you enjoy her musings. She's an amazing woman, single mother, daughter, sister, and friend. She's welcoming all sorts of feedback, if you hate what she says and the way she writes go ahead and tell her. If you like it, all the better, tell her that, too.
