Month of Gratitude - November 14

We woke up this morning to frost on the cars.  Actually this has happened a couple of times this last week, but this morning I had to acknowledge it.  Why?  Because we were actually using all three vehicles - Jon had to drive to college, Rick was off to work, and I had to get Emily to school and then had a list of errands.  The two cars that are parked in the garage were frost-free, but the truck in the driveway was covered.

Rick came in and asked if while I was out, if I would pick up a scraper for the truck.  I told him to go ahead and take the van and I would use the truck, because it would be thawed by the time I was leaving.  Rick wouldn't do this though, because it might not be thawed and the truck is big and I am not and he didn't want me to worry about scraping it.  He also knew how much I had to get done and how much I dislike driving the truck.

Then last night when his meeting was done, he called to let me know he was on his way home and to say "I love you."

Today reminded me again how lucky I am to have someone who loves me so much and always wants to take care of me.


  1. This grateful stuff is wonderful!! Your husband is a keeper :) I never think of you getting frost where you live. Isn't that silly?

    1. Thank goodness the frost is not a daily occurrence. Glad we get snow that sticks around long enough for a snowman in the morning and then hiking in the afternoon.
