So Grateful.......

I don't often give my husband the credit he deserves. For many years he has worked very hard and diligently in the construction field to provide for our family. And now, after a back injury, he has taken an early retirement. He always wakes up with aches and pains that sometimes go away as the day progresses and sometimes not. But he still finds something to do everyday regardless.

Our neighbor has recently had some physical problems that has rendered him chair-bound - unable to walk. This neighbor LOVES his yard and you could find him outside every single day carefully manicuring his lawn. Since his injury, he obviously hasn't been able to get outside. So my husband took it upon himself to just start mowing his lawn and pulling weeds, etc. It might sound like a little task, but believe me, it's A LOT of work! We both have big, sloped yards - add in heat and humidity and it is a great chore! I'm so proud of him for taking on this task to "love his neighbor as himself". It has been a huge blessing for our neighbor and a great example for me to watch.

I'm proud of you honey and so grateful to have you in my life. Love you......


  1. Oh, how nice of your husband. I bet your neighbor really appreciates all that you guys do for him. I bet he didn't know he was being photographed either!
