Sometimes I Forget

My husband is an amazing human being. He’s funny and kind, honest and hardworking, caring and understanding. He goes out of his way to do special things to make people smile. He notices everything (seriously, I can’t get anything past him) and he remembers so many little moments I find myself forgetting. I constantly find myself falling in love with him again and again every time I discover – or rediscover – something that makes him awesome.

These few days prior to Thanksgiving, I’ve caught myself reflecting on how lucky I truly am to be married to such a wonderful man. I am thankful for his love, his ability to communicate, his daddy extraordinaire-ness, his knowledge, and his incredibly sexy body. Having Cam has shown me a different side of Nick that I’m getting to know. Since we’re rarely “just the two of us” lately, I’m reminded of the role Nick plays in other people’s lives every day. He’s not just a great husband, but so many other “great” things to the other people in his life. 

Sometimes I forget that he’s a great son who is there for his parents when they need him. Sometimes I forget he’s a great brother who appreciates his brother and sister. Sometimes I forget he’s a great uncle who enjoys playing with his nieces and nephews and prides himself on buying “cool” presents for their birthdays and Christmas. Sometimes I forget he’s a great friend who cherishes his friendships with people he’s known for years and would pretty much drop everything if his friends needed him. Sometimes I forget he’s a great coworker who makes the people he works with enjoy their workdays. Sometimes I forget he’s a great stranger who is friendly to those he meets at the store.

The bottom line is, he’s not just “my husband” and I know that. He’s an incredible man who I’m lucky to have by my side in life, but also so fortunate to be a role model for our son. If Cam turns out to be half the man Nick is, I’ll feel so proud.
