Five Minute Friday: Fall

Today's prompt word is FALL....


Once again my mind goes straight to music. This should be no surprise by now I reckon'. This time I think of Clay Walker and his amazingly accurate song FALL. This song is a favorite of mine because it reminds me of my husband and how amazing he is.... especially when I fall.

We all have those types of days. The days where you just want to throw your hands up and cry or go hide in a closet for a mommy time out. Not just from the craziness motherhood brings but because sometimes life just gets too hard, too heavy. We are only human and can only take so much.

The last year has been hard on me and as much as I hate to admit it I don't always handle stress well. Sometimes I break and I yell and I can be ugly. Unfortunately, most of this is aimed at the person that I am closest to, my husband. Wrong? Yes, it is very wrong and I feel horrible because of it. But he handles it so well. 

The past 6-12 months were really bad, as far as stress goes, for both of us. I can't even count the number of times that I lost it. Even though I knew he was carrying the same load as I was I couldn't help it. He was so amazing and was there to catch me EVERY SINGLE TIME. He did as much as he could to take the stress off of me and it honestly was more then I deserved. I can't express how thankful I am to him for being there. For staying positive and encouraging and supportive. For being the one person in this would world that understands me and my issues and still loves me unconditionally. I can't imagine my life with out him by my side and I pray to God I will never have to experience that! 

Thank you Cowboy, for always being there to catch me when I fall! I love you more then words can describe!

  1. So sweet, Amber:)

    I know so many of us call our husbands our rocks, but sometimes to me the best thing about my husband is not the strength of his character (which is true of him, and sounds like your man as well), but the softness with which he catches me when I fall amidst the stresses of motherhood and life. We thank God for the gift of marriage and men who stand by us and hold us tight in our imperfection:)

  2. Thank you for stopping by Joy and for your kind words. God is the only reason why I am able to write this post today. Without Him Randy and I would have not gotten through some of our rougher years. I guess He just knew that we needed each other. :)
