Thankful Thursday - November 4, 2010

Tanya Nouwens and Richard GurbergToday's Thankful Thursday post is easy to pen. 

In the middle of the night last night, my husband came home after an 11-day trip to China and Vietnam. 

Every day, our loved ones leave us and go out and about in the world.  And every day, someone's loved one doesn't come back.  I am so thankful mine did, 'cause this house just isn't the same without him...though it is much tidier :)

My husband's back, and there's gonna be laundry.*

And I'm thankful for it.

*This line is borrowed from the title of the performance "My Boyfriend's Back and There's Going to be Laundry," by Sandra Shamas, a Canadian monologuist.  It cracks me up.

There are so many blessings to be thankful for but the blessings that have the ability to love us back are by far the best!

Oh sweetie! I think this is the shortest and sweetest thing i've ever seen you pen.  You are so blessed to have the love that's oozing out of every word you share and every wink in those blues. Hugs, and happy that you are so happy.


Tidiness is over-rated.:-)

Tanya, I hope you get more than the laundry to do LOL. My husband travelled a lot for his job too. Enjoy the reunion!

What a nice post Tanya. I'm sure your husband is thankful for having such a loving wife (who likes to do his laundry).

Tanya- I was just thinking your thoughts today.  When my husband leaves, I've told him I don't mind how long he's gone as long as he's safe and comes home.  I'd gladly do tons of laundry!  What a great start to your Thursday you had.
