Not A Typical Easter Post

We celebrated Easter today with a family dinner at our house. We had about 15 guests, two of which were from out of state and didn't know were coming until last minute but were thrilled could make it. I had all of the typical Easter feelings of thankfulness, appreciation and gratitude but there were also feelings I didn't expect, the love and appreciation for my husband. I woke up sick but with so much to do and I have to say he stepped up to the plate like never before. He always helps above and beyond but he had the kiddos doing laundry, the house spotless and the food cooking before I even made it out of bed. He made sure our guests had plenty of food and drink and were comfortable, all the while he made sure I was ok and never once complained in fact he said how much he enjoyed himself. I realized how unselfish this man of mine is and how lucky I am to call him my own. We will be married 20yrs. on April 21st and I fell in love with him all over again today. God has truly blessed me over and over again and for this I am thankful.
