Happy Thanksgiving!!

I realize it's been a while. This year has been one hell of a year. And we only have several weeks before it comes to an end. I think from the 6 years I've been married to Gerson, 2012 has definitely been the most transitional. From getting pregnant, to finishing med school, moving state, being apart from Gerson while I had the baby in Texas and he starting work, the beginning of the oh-so challenging medical residency, and living life with our precious baby! Hence, my hiatus to blogging. Funny thing (and confession) is that there have been some days that I've struggled to be positive with such changes, when clearly they are blessings! A baby, a job, an accomplished dream, a house in a different state, each one is a HUGE blessing! So, this year I'm just grateful for God's word, that constantly reminded me of His promises and filled my heart and mind (and home) with peace when I needed it. I'm also grateful for all my friends & family who helped us in anyway during these transitions... with the move and/or all the baby showers and baby stuff! We have spent very little out of our pocket thanks to you! And to all my girlfriends who have given me great "mommy tips". Thanks for not judging and simply empathizing. Love you! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

A thought for today.

So my coworkers met my husband a couple months ago at an event.

I recall coming back to work and several of them telling me that my husband was very handsome. I take that as a compliment all the time. But today several of them told me that one of my coworkers thought he was so handsome she was going to walk up to him and ask for his number. That is until she found out he was my husband.

The sad part is that this woman is married. And although they find it hilarious, I find it sad.

So my thought for today is, to the men, the husbands, love your wife so crazily and madly that she won't feel the need to have to look for another man that will be crazy about her, even when the other man might be cuter. Show appreciation and affection. Tell her she's beautiful. Make her feel like the queen that she is. Listen to her to know her and be romantic once in awhile.

To the women, the wives, respect your husband. Allow him to wear the pants. Don't be bossy, nagging, and controlling. Let him take the role as the leader and man that he is. Be his wife, friend, lover, and helper so he won't feel the need to look for one of these elsewhere.

Just a thought. Have a good day!
