My memory may fail me at some point. I know this, because it has before. This little blog is not only my place to encourage others, but to chronicle my thoughts and store my memories, in case I ever forget these sweet moments. I have no idea how long my posts will stay on the internet. It’s my hope that someday my children can see these and know they were so very cherished.
This Thankful Thursday is dedicated to my amazing husband. He does so much to help me keep this house running smooth, clothes on our backs, and food in our bellies. I thank him for those things, although I don’t say it nearly enough.
The thing I want to thank him for today though, is dancing with our daughters and rocking around the kitchen with our son.
I’m blessed to have a fun husband, even if sometimes that means I feel inadequate for being the party pooper.
They really would listen to music and dance all night if I weren’t here to stop them and call for bed time.
Our youngest loves to shout “let’s dance!” in the bathtub with her duckies. She then giggles and twirls them, or stirs the water to make the little plastic duckies dance. The ducks are dressed as a bride and groom (a gift from my brother and sister-in-law around the time of their wedding).
Even more special is when that same little girl runs into the kitchen and asks her daddy to dance.
“Dance?” She says with a smile and her hand held out high to meet his.
And even more special than THAT will be the day he twirls her around the dance floor at her wedding reception. We’re in no hurry, and I’ll savor each day between now and then. I am still greatly looking forward to that day though.
You see, these moments are special and great, and I love every bit of it. You know what though? I know there is far greater to come. What a great promise to believe in.
Greater things are yet to come.
