Watching him work!

I'm here sitting in the truck watching Colby work on this electrical stuff in the field. We are kidless this weekend so why not come to work with him right, I just have to sit in the truck which I'm fine with because road time is a good time to just sit and chat. There are no chores to be done or a house to keep clean out here, it just good quality time with the one's you love. Watching him work makes me realize how hard he works everyday for our family to keep us going and to provide us with the things we need. Not to mention I get to see him looking sexy in his hardhat. He's such a handsome man and I feel truly blessed to be his girlfriend! I've never gotten the chance to come out here and experience this because we've always had Brooke so why not. It seemed fitting right! There's a right time for every experience in our lives! He works in the heat and sometimes he tells me that it's hot outside or something but never does he complain, NEVER! Like I said I'm truly blessed with a wonderful man like him in our lives. Everyone deserves something good in their lives and I'm blessed to have two wonderful things. I've been blessed with the most amazing daughter and with a wonderful boyfriend. Two of those things I couldn't be more thankful for! It's been an amazing ride.

Happy Father's Day!

First of all let me say Happy Father's Day to all of those men who are lucky enough to be called Father's on this day! Some take it seriously and some do not!

I'm spending my first Father's day away from my Dad and it's been kind of hard. I realize that I've had 25 of the best years of my life with that man, but I do have my own family now. I miss him being there for me a lot of times. I'm so happy to celebrate Father's day with Colby this year and he has taken it awesomely.

My dad has never failed me, he has always been there for me no matter what and I hope that I was there for him when he had cancer. I can only hope that he thought the same thing as he layed in that hospital bed and had his two daughters surrounding him at all times! He has been my hero for much of my life, and I couldn't be more proud of the dad he has been. Now that's not to say that we haven't had rough tough times as most children and their dad's do, but it's been a fun ride. But I'm all grown up now!

What do we know about love?

No one can tell you just exactly what love feels like, it's one of those things you have to experience for yourself. It's something that you feel with your heart, with every part of you! There are different kinds of love. There's that love that you have for your parents. The love that you have for your children, which is indescribable and happens almost the instant that you find out that you're going to be a parent. There's the kind of love that is shown to you through kind acts, whether it's your best friend being there or your sister. Then there's the love that you can't explain, that is shown to you when you find that person that you are supposed to spend the rest of your life with! I have found that, and yes I have written on it before however, he is out of town and the things he says and does are just proof to let me know that he really and truly does love me and care about me.

I can tell you this, because it's what I know. I appreciate Colby more than he'll ever know because he's gone right now. I didn't realize how much he really did around here, like the dishes, the laundry, help with Brooke...and many more. I have always appreciated the things he's done for us, I guess I just never really had the time to stop and think about it or to realize it. What an amazing thing he does, every morning he gets up and goes to work at 6:45 and sometimes doesn't get home until 8:45 in the evening, but he does it for his family, us. He does it because he loves us and he likes for us to have nice things. He never complains about how hot it was or how his arms are sunburnt or how much of an ass his boss really is. He does a lot for us, and I'm forever grateful to have him in our lives. How did we get so lucky to have a great man like him, love us unconditionally. It's the little things that show you just how much someone loves you.

I have to tell you this sweet little thing. One morning as we were leaving for the sitters and work, Brooke starting freaking out..."OMG mom someone wrote on our window." I just kept telling her to calm down nothing was going on and I was positive it was just the morning dew. As I rounded the corner and took a good look at my truck I noticed there on the drivers side window it was written "I love you! Colby" How sweet I thought, I snapped a picture before driving down the road made it all run down the window like a steady stream. It was awesome. I thought to myself. I'm a spoiled girl and somedays I really don't realize it. There are some mornings when I can't even say I love you before he beats me to it as he's running out the door. I enjoy his company, his laughs, his jokes, the way he looks at me and smiles, and the way he says, "I love you." That's what I know about love. It's a mighty powerful thing.
