Those Pesky Tears at 2:30am - or - Thankful for Mr. Potts

It seems this time of year there is a plethora of posts around what people are thankful for. I have many, many things that I am thankful for, but I wanted to share with you the person that I'm most thankful for.

Mr. Potts, yep, you guessed it. He's the person I'm most thankful for.

When I'm thirsty and we're lounging on the couch, he'll get me a glass of water. One of our great, big 32 ounce cups because I drink a LOT of water.

When I finish reading at night, he'll get out of bed and turn the light off so I don't have to.

While I'm gone, he keeps me updated with tales of Pepe Cat and his morning chatter and Hayden with her sweet calmness.

He laughs at my goofy jokes. And trust me, they're GOOFY. I'm goofy. And he loves this about me.

He'll rub my feet after a long day and then will cuddle with me at night. This is BIG because he is not a cuddler.

Perhaps the thing I'm most thankful for about Mr. Potts is that he knows me. He knows how I'll react to things. He knows where my thought process is going to take me.

He'll let me cry when he knows I need to at 2:30 in the morning and he'll smooth my hair and talk me through my tears.

He knows what sets me off, what worries me and what can bring me to my knees in fear.

He knows my heart.

Mr. Potts...I thank God every day for bringing him into my life.

In this time of reflection, what (or who) are you thankful for?

Aww Mr. Potts sounds like a sweetie..he does a lot of the same things that Dimples does - rub my feet after he's had a long day, and snuggle with me at nighttime. When he went away for a weekend, he told me to check my phone. There's a voice recording feature on the phone and the night before he left, he said "Good night, I love you, and sweet dreams!" so I could play it and hear it before bedtime. Stuff like that makes me so grateful for his presence in my life.
