The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing. (Gratitude 23/150)

They gave each other a smile with a future in it.
– Ring La

I am grateful for love, romance, companionship, a man to hold me when I’m falling asleep or sobbing in his arms. I am grateful for hopes and dreams, being provided for and a promise of tomorrow. I am grateful for understanding and a willingness to do whatever it takes.

I am grateful that even though I have been divorced twice, I believe in the magic of belonging to one man in marriage… and he to me.

I am grateful for my husband, Noid, the man with the thighs, the man who asked me to marry him and be his wife.

I am grateful my husband came home with flowers tonight.

I am grateful my husband can cook steak like nobody I know.

I am grateful that sometimes my husband just shakes his head and let me be.

I am grateful my husband is a good father to all our children.

I am grateful that making love to my husband always leaves me breathless… which has nothing to do with fitness. He is gorgeous to look at.

I am grateful that my husband believes in me, even when I lack faith in my ability.

I am grateful my husband tries to make my every dream come true.

I am grateful that my husband works so very hard and takes his career seriously so that we may have a future and enough money when we retire, because it is one of my greatest fears.

I am grateful my husband supports me in my Tranquil Body Treats ventures.

I am grateful that my husband and I share tattoo’s although I know he does not feel about ink as I do… then again I am an expressive Gemini Bi-polar chick who needs to show the meanings of life in this manner. It brings me joy, peace, fun and closure. It is am addiction to showing how much I’ve lived and saves me from cutting…. although I never have, I have contemplated it during depressive times. My husband may not get my need for ink, but he tries to understand although we both know he wishes this cup would pass him by.

I am grateful for the family and friends my husband has enriched my life with.

I am grateful that my husband introduced me to the Drakensberg and that we have a ‘spot’ we visit and come ‘home to’ when we in the Berg.

I am grateful that my husband arranged our marriage exactly as we had talked about it long before.

I am grateful my husband agrees to photo shoots, although he secretly thinks it is a waste of money but he knows I love a treasure it.

I am grateful that my husband is an awesome x-husband and pays his maintenance, fetched his kids when he is supposed to during alternate weekends and holidays.

I am grateful my husband doesn’t drink until he slurs and falls down and has never lifted a hand to me.

I am grateful my husband is respected in his workplace for he has put in countless hours and effort in a profession he enjoys and believes he can make a difference in.

I am grateful my husband will go to the art movies with me and sit on love seats.

I am grateful my husband understands my passion for books and lets me be.

I am grateful my husband is funny, reaches out to others in humour and brings joy to strangers with the stupid things he does which amuse me on a good day and makes me tired when I’m sore and just wanna sit down.

I am grateful my husband reaches for my hand.

I am grateful my husband comes home as soon as he can every night.

I am grateful my husband doesn’t say you have a hundred pair of shoes/pants/shirts/books/perfume etc, but if we can afford it, will encourage me to buy it.

I am grateful my husband likes to read. I secretly look down on people who don’t read. It’s just not proper.

I am grateful that my husband doesn’t question why we have to have rainbow sprinkles in our sugar.

I am grateful my husband will make the bed and wash the dishes while I am in the bath.

I am grateful that my husband lets me decorate our home as I wish for the most part.

I am grateful for laughter, doing things and experience places I would never have had the guts, money or inclination to do on my own, if it wasn’t for him.

Noid, if you don’t know by now, I love you 8.
