Good evening! I took this photo last night and just wanted to share - messy bed, bad lighting, and all! As a photographer, I like sharing "pretty" images - but as a wife, there isn't anything prettier than being loved by these two.
For my new followers, this is my BB (Bearded Beloved) and Wilma, our rescued Tennessee Treeing Brindle (we recently discovered her breed and she's not a Plott Hound as we first thought). #
Wilma was found in a bad state, roaming around a very rural cemetery last June, and rescued by my BB while attending a funeral. Wilma has become his "barber shop dog" and a very loving member of our small pack.
As I recover from my total hip replacement surgery, we kept Wilma off the bed a week prior to surgery and a week after. Now, with a " duvet barrier" next to me, she is back in the pack and obviously very happy to be with her fur daddy again. She seems to have a sense that I'm not 100% and has been extra careful around me.
But what I really wanted to share is the love and devotion of my bearded beloved. You can see he is tired here - as he cuts hair all day long and then takes care of me and also Wilma. He has cooked many mini meals for me to easily heat up; he helps me with my PT and somehow is blind to my messy hair, sweat pants, no makeup, and a very large bruised incision down the side of my hip. He carefully dries my legs after my shower and bends down to help me put on my sweatpants, as I can't bend over 90 degrees for sometime yet. All this and more in addition to his working his day job.
I know I am blessed. And I thank God for my little family. And I just wanted to share that I appreciate how hard my husband works. Too often, media and marketing portray husbands as clueless, irresponsible, big kids who never grow up. As much as BB loves to be goofy and ham it up on my IG stories, there's a whole private, serious, devoted side that I'm truly blessed with. Of course we have those horrible, hard seasons in marriage like many couples endure - all the more reason for my gratitude that we continue to love each other even when we are not so lovable. That's God at work. And I'm grateful. God bless your pack tonight! 🙏🏻💕
