"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

I though I would share a little about Aaron's job. He is an EMT working for our local Ambulance. He has such a wonderful group of people he works for, we couldnt ask for better! :) How his work time goes is like this: He has 24 hours off on Friday night at 6pm to Saturday night at 6pm. He also has off 12 hours on Monday's (6am-6pm) and 12 hours off on Wednesdays (same as Monday). He is at home until he gets a call. Now some days (or nights) we might not see him hardly at all, while other days/night are quite. We are very blessed to have him home so much. We get to see him more then most husband/daddy's.

Here are some fun numbers.
120 hours a week
480 hours a month
5760 hours a year.

He went on 399 (if I remember right) calls in 2009...over 1/2 the total call volume.

Now these are not counting the hours or days here and there he takes off, or the Holy Days.

I want to say Thank You to Aaron, for working so hard and providing for us. We love you! You are our Hero! Thanks so much for all you do!

I want to make sure you all understand I love what my husband does and am very proud to be an EMT's wife. I am so blessed to be able to see him so much and love all the people he works for. This is just a brag post. :)
