The other day another blogger friend, Sarah, wrote a post about her hero husband. I loved this and know that I share pics of the kids here all the time but I don't often share my husband with you. Dominic is really my best friend. I can't imagine going through life with anyone else.
We don't really spend much time apart - except for work and such. But our weekends are spent as a family. Sometimes we are working on projects or watching movies or just being lazy -but we find ways to have fun together and I love that!
Dominic takes his role of husband and father very seriously. He is always concerned about our well-being and is continuously looking for ways to strengthen our relationships. He has taught us a spirit of gratitude in all things and reminds us that "we don't have to do anything in this life...we get to do these things". Reminding us that our circumstances are often shaped by our perspective. If we have the right perspective we can get through anything.
We have been through a LOT of changes this past year. From him taking a new job, moving to another state, commuting back and forth on weekends for 10 months, selling a home, buying a home etc. It has been a year of transitions and stress. It hasn't always been easy and there are - even still - times of uncertainty.
But when I look at Dominic I know that it has been worth it - all of it because we have done it together. We have grown and matured, faced challenges that we shouldn't have to face....but we have walked it together and I am SO proud of the man that he is.
It doesn't matter if the seas are raging around us or if they are still - we are grateful for the opportunity to journey together. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Dominic - you are a hero in my eyes. You work hard, forgive graciously, laugh with your whole body, love with abandon and fight for what is right. You have always been my confidant and I am so glad that I can share the good, bad and sometimes even the ugly with you. Thank you for loving me and for giving me this family of ours. I am grateful beyond words that I get to share each day with you by my side. <3 K
