I read some of the things people write about their husbands and wives and I think to myself that it’s sad the way we never think to acknowledge the good things our spouses do for us. When I tried to come up with 10 things I didn’t like about my husband a few days ago I couldn’t think of 10 very easily. It was funny because I told him about it when he came home and he jokingly began to add some things to the list for me based of course on my years and years of complaining about them. It occurs to me that we complain too much, people in general. We point the finger and accuse and blame and look at the bad things people do. So, with that in mind, I want to acknowledge and thank my husband for never making me feel like the sight of me disgusts him even when I walk around with my hair in a mess, dressed like I have no home and nobody to love me, even when I myself feel like I look like I should be jailed for my crime of being ugly. He’s seen me go up and down in weight and at no time has he ever made me feel like I was more worthy of attention with a slimmer body than I am with a less slim body. He does not make me feel as if my body defines who I am for better or worse. So I thank for him for that.
