I really do!
I know some of you will question why I am saying that. Some will laugh because you know Zane and I so well. Some will be happy to hear I actually do love him!
He is a smart alec. He is cynical. He's probably the reason I came up with "going to stab someone in the eye"! He can drive Lacey and I to the point of screaming. He's had his ups and downs, good and bad. .
Most important, he has a heart of gold. He does have a lot of compassion. Today, he took time out of his day to help someone. It wasn't anything urgent or life threatening. But Zane made this person feel important and cared for. Zane didn't complain or grumble, he had fun. This is not the first time and it will not be the last.
He's always good to my nieces and nephews. There's always jokes and lots of laughter. We all give Zane as much as he gives out. The same for the kids (& adults) in Haiti or wherever he goes!
This has been a rough year for me health wise and Zane has waited on me constantly, mostly without grumbling. He has fretted over me and Lacey. He has done his best to keep me stress free. I may want to stab him in the eye (haha) and days that he knows he has pushed me to my limit, but I wouldn't trade him.
I am thankful for him and his big, giving, caring heart.
Now that Lacey is off at college, I find myself with way too much time to think. For me, thinking leads to worrying and worrying leads to worst case scenario. So I thought maybe blogging and putting some of my thoughts down might help myself. You never know, at some point I might come up with a clever thought or idea in the process!
