As most of you know by now, I am in North Carolina helping out with my Mom and Dad during Mom’s last days.
Everyone has been so nice – sending prayers and thoughts to the family, and telling me how wonderful it is that I am here doing so much for both of my parents. Thank you so much for that.
However, there is someone else just as deserving of your praise. Were it not for my incredible husband, Paul, I would not be able to be here. Paul has gone above and beyond back in Fort Worth, taking care of all of the business at home so that I can help take care of things here in North Carolina.
Poor guy – I hadn’t been gone very long and he, Rebecca, AND Sarah all came down with the flu! It’s hard enough when one family member gets sick, but when there isn’t any back-up, things can get pretty miserable rather quickly. Fortunately, we have wonderful friends who were able to pitch in and help out at home. We are truly blessed.
I think the longest time that we have been apart without seeing each other is 4-5 days whenever Paul has to go out of town on business. There was a 2-month stretch back in 2015 when I had to be in the hospital due to a medical emergency, but Paul was able to visit every day. So far this time, we have been apart over two weeks, and we are both missing each other. Fortunately, Paul and Rebecca will be coming for a short visit next weekend.
They always say that behind every successful man there is an equally important woman, but I am here to tell you that behind this “strong” woman, there is an amazing, strong, indispensable, funny (and handsome!) man – my favorite fella, and the most wonderful husband in the world, Paul.
I am so incredibly lucky.
