Thankful Thursday

I haven't done one of these in quite some time, and I'm feeling a little guilty about it. No matter what is going on, there's always something to be thankful for. Sometimes you just don't wanna, ya know?

Today, my honeyface (new nickname. Ya like? I don't think he does, but this is my blog and I can do what I want.) isn't feeling well. He has a headache and an upset tummy, and last night he woke up a few times to indulge in a good coughing fit. He's a miserable man.

Makes me sound kinda mean, huh? Talking about Paul's illness on a Thankful post... But there's more.

This morning I looked up the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal, and they include:
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Cold symptoms
  • Insomnia
  • Boredom
Why does this matter, you ask? Because up until last Wednesday, Paul smoked a pack a day. And today he has gone eight whole days without smoking once.

So while I'm sad that he's not feeling well, I am so so proud of him. He's been strong and determined, and while I know it has been difficult for him, he hasn't given up or given in. He has a goal, and he is well on his way to seeing it through.

I love you baby; I'm proud of you; I'm thankful for you, and I'm behind you every step of the way.

Way to go Paul. Your kids and future wife need a healthy man and sounds like you are well on your way. See you Monday!

Ooh, he's almost over the hump! Takes about 2 weeks to stop going through the crazy need (I speak from experience) but he has plenty of great reasons to quit! Yay Paul!
