An Unappreciative Wife

MacKay has been out of town on business since Sunday morning and I have been on responsibility overload. This afternoon I took Harlan to open play so that she could climb on things and get some of her energy out and I looked at one of my friends and said, "I'm tired!"  I was too tired to even put makeup on or do my hair this morning.  I was lucky even to put on a decent outfit. Running after Harlan all day long and taking care of our two dogs is exhausting.

Through this exhaustion came many thoughts to myself of how unappreciative I am of my husband.  I know he does a lot. He goes to work, takes the dogs on a walk every morning and night, gets Harlan ready for bed, does the dishes at night, and so much more.  But I don't ever verbalize to him how much I appreciate his contributions to our family.  He really is a great husband and father, but why has it taken me this long to really and truly appreciate it and tell him?

I know that I have told him here and there all of these things, but it is when he is gone and I have all of the work to do myself that I am really shown that this family doesn't work right without him.

So I take to this blog to tell him  how much I appreciate him and how great of a father and husband he is.  Thank you, MacKay, for taking on all that you do just to make my life a little bit easier.
