Thankful for my Husband!
I was lurking around in the blosgosphere and I found a post about being thankful for your spouse. What a refreshing way to think of marriage. So many emails, jokes, and cards focus on putting down the opposite gender (making fun of how stupid or inept they are) when often we, in the next breath, claim to love someone of this gender. I agree that men sometimes are a little clueless---in the ways of women! That's why they're men! In the same way I certainly do not understand everything about my husband and how his mind works, that's why I'm a woman! Pretty cool how that works out, huh? I'm pretty sure that you will still see occasional posts about my husband and his, hmmm how should I say it?, clueless-ness! But overall I have been blessed with such an awesome husband that I do thank God for him regularly!
*He loves me. (and that's not always easy)
*He gives me "mommy time" to go and do things without the kids-time to unwind.
*He gave me 3 of the most beautiful, smartest, funniest kids ever!
*He loves God.
*He's a good dad!
*He is not afraid to tell me when I'm wrong. And yes, that is a good thing.
*He supports me-how else could I home school?
*He eats my new recipes, even when they're duds. ;)
*He does not expect perfection in housekeeping--which is funny, makes me want to be a better housekeeper!? :)
I'm sure there are so many more, but I must now go and home school said children lest they grow up to be uneducated! :)
