I Appreciate Him

Sorry for the lack of posts, these past couple of days have been a little unusual.

My husband got sick with the flu. This man is never sick, so it was a big eye opener for me on how much he really does around the house. He got sick in the middle of yard work. Piles of wood in the middle of the yard had to be moved by yours truly. Usually, he is the brute and does all of the hard labor. I really appreciate him for that.

I got my covered porch back, my lovely, lovely porch. We had a lot of equipment stored under the covered porch this winter, but now it's all moved and my peaceful retreat is back. I wasn't able to enjoy the peaceful retreat as much, however; because my husband was too sick to come outside and enjoy it with me. The porch is less enjoyable without him there. I even need him for quiet moments, he is the one who makes it peaceful and relaxing. I appreciate him for that.

Two days of him not being his usual self and I realize not only how much he does around the house, but how much he does to make me happy. I take for granted how often he makes me laugh and makes me smile. When he is feeling well, I don't have to go a day without a smile or a laugh. I appreciate him for that.

Things are starting to get back to normal now that he is feeling a little better. It's amazing how something such as my husband getting sick can throw everything off for me. He really does so much. I will be back with my regular updates, now. Things are getting back to normal.

How was your weekend?
What are your plans for the week?
