Since my husband’s heart surgery each day with him has been a blessing.
I know that each day PRIOR to his surgery should have been the same, but we are both human, with all our human faults and foibles and some days he used to drive me absolutely insane with frustration.
But since he was almost taken from me, my attitude has changed.
His behavior is exactly the same. He still watches football on the tv…and I hate football!
He still is a picky eater, and it is even more important now that he eats nutritious foods.
He may have had the operation; but I have changed.
I am just so grateful that he is still here, still annoying me with football or MST3000 or old Star Trek television shows.
His leaving his clothes on the floor instead of in the laundry basket doesn’t even bother me. I still don’t pick it up but figure he’s a grown man and if he wants to wear it again, the clothes will miraculously appear in the correct spot.
In this season of “I want” or “I need to buy”, I am so happy just to be able to see, speak to and listen to my husband each day.
I wish for everyone this year a feeling of gratitude for what they have……….not STUFF………..but the people in their lives that make their life worthwhile.
