thankful


i'm thankful for my husband.

he is a man that can get stuff done...



rotted out porch

ta-da



the fence he built for my in-laws


the truck he is rebuilding, piece by piece



the deck and screen he built out of re-claimed decking



and even when he doesn't know how to do something, he'll learn. like welding. i asked him to weld some old iron fencing together for me, just assuming he could. he said ok, and that was it. then a few days later he said he was going to a friend's house to learn how to weld.
see what happened there? instead of resigning to the fact that he couldn't weld, he agreed to do it, knowing that he could learn how to do it. i love that about him...

just one of the many things that i am thankful for about john.

and believe me, there are many...

Your hubby rocks! Isn't nice to have a handy man around the house? :)

that is awesome. your husband is cool! sounds a lot like my husband (right down to the car he is rebuilding. reassure him that welding may come in very handy when rebuilding that truck!)
