I love him

With New Year's just around the corner, it's natural that I start to think of "resolutions" for the New Year.

I'm not the kind of person who sits down with pen and paper in hand and proceeds to write out a list of New Year's resolutions like a) lose weight (although I should) b) pay off mortgage (I wish!) c) eat less junk food (I guess this goes hand in hand with lose weight).

But I am the kind of person who reflects on the past year and I examine myself and see what I can do to make myself a better wife, mother, sister, daughter, person.

I will be the first to admit that I am not a perfect person. I have my faults. I honestly try my best every day in life to be the best person I can be, but of course I am just human.

I love my husband with my whole heart and soul. We have known eachother since we were 14 years old and have been together since we were 17 years old, we have been married for almost 6 years and we have built a beautiful life together. We have two beautiful girls, whom we both adore.

Of course with the birth of our two girls, our lives have changed drastically. There are days when the only things that we talk about are the girls, what bills need to be paid and what the plans are for dinner. I have come to realize that I have failed to be the best wife that I can be in the most simplest way. I have failed to show my husband that I love him every day.

Between work, driving Zoe to school and or ballet, looking after Pia, cooking meals, doing laundry, cleaning the house, life in general. I have forgotten to take a second out of my busy day and tell him that I love him, tell him thank you, or even just ask how his day has been. I just assume that he knows that I love him and that I am thankful for what he does for us every day.

This person, who I share my life with, who has been a part of my life for more than 17 years, deserves more from me. And that is my New Year's resolution.

To show the love of my life that I love him....every day.
