ActiveRain/DocuSign Contest : Thankful Group

Everyday is a day to be thankful.....  Not just because it is a contest.  Not because you get points....Not because you save time using DocuSign...

I can honestly say there is only one person in this world I am thankful for everyday of my life … and that is my husband Frank.

Who else could put up with me for the past 36 years?  
December, 1975... our first date....

He loves me unconditionally.  He loves our two children unconditionally.  He has never been abusive to me.  He is not a womanizer.  He is not a drunk.  He never uses foul language. He has always provided for his family.  He shared the responsibilities of raising two children...

He changed diapers, feed, burped and bathed his children. He chauffeured his children to boy scouts, girl scouts, piano lessons, soccer games, basketball games, football games, band practice, choir practice, baseball games, recitals, ballet classes and many more activities.

Reflecting back to my childhood, I do not recall the same experiences with my own father.  
He was not part of my life growing up. He never cooked, cleaned or chauffeured his three children anywhere.  He never took the time to toss a baseball with his son, attend his baseball games, or engage in a conversation with either of his daughters. He was an abusive man,both physically and mentally to his family. He was a drunk and foul language was natural in his daily vocabulary.  

Everyday I am thankful to have Frank, as my husband, the father of my children, in my life. I am even more thankful I didn’t marry a man like my father. I am truly blessed everyday of my life to have my husband Frank, who loves and supports me, unconditionally.

Karen Baker, you are amazing!  Not because you wrote this, not because you got lucky enough to have a guy like Frank, but because you recognize these qualities in him and you are grateful for them.  I feel blessed just knowing you two.
