my husband is AMAZING!

I'd like to take a moment to let everyone know what an amazing man I am married to...if you know Joe, you know that he is loving, kind, totally compassionate and a born servant. And I, personally, am blessed by his love, patience, support, and encouragement of me. But this passed weekend another talent emerged! He fenced in our backyard. I have a new appreciation for what appears to be the simple chain link's not that simple!

Last week, during one of my melt downs (one of my many melt downs last week) I asked if we could get the backyard fenced in so I would be able to let Max out during the day and not have to watch him while he's out there. By "we" of course I meant Joe and his tools (it was a melt down moment.) Joe, being the incredible man that he is, changed what he was planning on doing and taught himself how to build a fence. He had never done anything like this before, but did an amazing job! After a few trips to the hardware store, many cuts, scrapes, and swollen hands, and several hours of work we now have a fenced in backyard! Max LOVES it! do I.

to top it all off--Joe gave me an awesome surprise gift (an early birthday gift.) This weekend we are going on a family weekend get-a-way to visit friends in Hilton Head! I am so excited to take long walks on the beach and play in the sand with my husband and my son. We are all in need of some time away from the regular routine and time together. I love time with my family...I am so blessed!
