On May the 4th me and my Mrs. will be celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. As with all marriages we have had some challenging times as well as times of shear bliss.
I had surgery on my ankle about a month ago which has caused me to be quite a bit more sedentary than usual. This time has given me cause to pause and consider many things in my life. Choices made. Chances passed up. Mistakes. Successes. The list goes on.
Since I am unable to move about as I normally would, I have had to rely on others for alot of things. The first week after surgery my oldest daughter left work just to bring me lunch. She not only fed my stomach that day but more importantly (to me) she fed my spirit. Knowing that she would be thinking about me and be willing to go so far out of her way to serve her ailing daddy. I think that not only speaks to how her mother and I raised her but more importantly speaks of our relationship.
I’ll tell you what though, my Mrs. has really had to carry the load since I am unable. Honestly though, she has always done so. The woman is just driven. Back “in the day” she worked full time and went to school full time at night and on weekend. She went on to earn her MEd in Math and Science that way! She’s a brilliant woman. Now that she teaches high school math she not only teaches during the day but brings homes piles and piles of papers to grade every single night!
She really is amaszing, I don’t know how she does it. For the last month (on top of her regular stuff) she has had to do the things I normally do too. Heck, she even fussed at me for being up and doing things. She has done all this and never, once complained.
My Mrs. is quite a remarkable woman and I not only love her to pieces but I appreciate her too!
