He Makes Me……..

………….want to be a better person.

Now that I am a mother, it is so important for myself and my husband to set a good example for our two little girls.  They may be small, but our oldest picks up on EVERYTHING.  She does the things I do, she says the things I say, she dances the way I dance……..so I mean everything.

As I go about my day to day life I quite often end up in certain situations where there ends up being two paths: the high-road or the low-road.  It would be so easy to take the low road sometimes, but I find myself saying…….”What would my husband (Brett) think?” or “What would Brett do” or “Brett wouldn’t approve if I did (blank)”.  And these thoughts have made me realize that my husband makes me want to be a better person.  He holds me to a higher standard than sometimes I even think I hold myself, but yet I am continually rising to meet his expectations.  If he weren’t in my life, would I be the person I am today?  I would hope so, but I don’t know, because like I said, he challenges me to be the best person I can be; thus bringing out the best in me.

My wish is that everyone has a person like Brett in their life.  Someone that brings out the best in you, someone that challenges you to be the best you, you can be, and someone who you love and respect so much that you constantly are wanting to make them proud.  We should all be so lucky to find someone like that in our lifetime.

So thank you my dear, sweet husband for bringing out the best in me and helping me to be the best for our girls.  You are my “it” and I am so thankful to have you in my life!
