Giving Thanks: My Partner in Crime.

If you wondered when I was going to get around to giving thanks to my husband Scott, never fear, here it is. We have been together for 12 years. We have had ups, we have had downs. I don't think we ever imagined we would have the life we do (how can anyone predict having a child with Autism?). Every day he rides it out with me. He laughs with me, cries with me, gives me hugs when I am too frozen with sadness to move, and tells me he loves me when he leaves in the morning, no matter what. He is not perfect, neither am I. We are works in progress for sure. When I am bouncing off the walls in one of my "MUST DO THIS NOW" manic moments he shakes his head and waits for me to calm down. When he needs a kick in the ass, I am there to help get him moving. He is the one person in this world who truly knows what I am going through, and every day he stands next to me and dukes it out with Autism. All that, and he is still able to be silly and laugh and take tremendous joy in both of our children. Thank you Scott for knowing when I need to tag out and for still wanting to go out on dates and weekends away with me, even after 12 years.

    You forgot to mention the badass prime rib roast dinner I cooked for you after I mowed the lawn yesterday - front AND back.

    J/K. Love you, babe.


  3. That's because I wrote it while you were mowing the lawn(s) and before we ate dinner! ;-P
