I've missed the last couple of "Thankful Thursdays", but I am glad to be back with it this week. I think I might finally be getting back into a more normal routine after the holidays.
This week I am thankful for so many things. But, my biggest thanksgiving is my dear husband. He is kind, loving, and works hard to provide for his family. He's a good husband and father. He loves to spend time with each of us and does so many things, both big and small, for us. He sees that we are involved in church and works so well with me to raise our children to love the Lord.
While I am thankful for all those qualities each and every day, this week I am particularly thankful for his willingness to jump in and take care of everything at home. I have had to be out of town for work and he is home with the kids "holding down the fort". No complaints, no grumbling.... he just says "OK" and takes care of it all.
He is great, too, about taking the time to make sure I get updates of all that is going on at home. Throughout each day I get text messages with updates of the happenings at home. "I love you" messages from him and the kids, notes on homework status, and fun things they are doing together. My favorite message yesterday was that the dog had found a missing piece to a Christmas gift.... I almost laughed out loud in the middle of a meeting as I read the text message! :) Who would've thought the dog would find that little USB drive that came with one of my son's Christmas gifts?!
I miss them all so much, but I can assured that Jeff has it all under control while I am gone! Such a good feeling!!
