Thirty Days of Gratitude - Day 15: My Husband

My husband and I were texting back and forth this morning as he was sitting outside at UNLV, waiting for his class to start after a grueling graveyard shift at work. I asked him how work had gone the night before, and we proceeded to discuss the events of the night. As you can imagine, the casino nightlife can get pretty...let's just say "interesting," for lack of a better word. ;)

As we sat there texting, I started to feel really bad for him because he was getting ready to go into class after he had been up all night, and was going on like 20 hours at that point with no sleep. Then, I realized that after his class, he'd be coming home, but would only be getting about three hours of sleep before he'd have to get up again and head right back out for a lesson and then rehearsal with The LV Phil (they have a concert this weekend).

My poor husband is stretched so thin and he sacrifices so much for our family on a daily basis. He rarely ever calls in sick and he never complains. He even humors me and does what he can to be involved and help me out with the kids and stuff when he is home.

Every Sunday, no matter how tired he is (he is lucky if he gets a 2-hour nap on Sunday mornings), he gets up and attends church with us. He magnifies his callings and honors his priesthood - and truly inspires me to be the most Christ-like version of myself.

I do try to tell him on a regular basis how much he is appreciated and loved, but I felt it was appropriate to devote an entire day to show my gratitude for him. :)

So, to my amazing, tubalicious hubby: you are such an enormous blessing in my life. You are an awesome dad, a loving, faithful husband, an incredibly talented musician and teacher, and I love you with all my heart. I honestly thank Heavenly Father for you every day, and I don't know how I would ever live without you! xoxo! <3
