2011 Gratitude Challenge - November 2nd




Today is day 2 of the 2011 Gratitude Challenge. Today I am grateful for my husband. Well, always, but you know what I mean. lol



My husband is such a great person. He is hardworking, always provides for us, and allows me to stay home with the children.

He is the one who thought of homeschooling in the first place. I have so many friends who's husbands are not supportive of homeschooling, or who's husbands won't let them homeschool at all. I am so thankful my husband is a full supporter of homeschooling.

He is a great dad. He always wrestles with my son. If you can call it that. Wrestling for my son is punching, kicking, anything goes. lol

He takes my daughter shopping for new clothes, and loves to play games with the kids. He tries to take each of the kids out for a special breakfast once a month. They really like this time with daddy.

I never have to worry about things with my husband. He works very hard, and even if something were to happen to our current situation, I know that we would be taken care of. Of course I know that God plays a bigger role in that, but my husband would also make sure to take care of us.

He is just great! I really love him. We are about to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. I can't believe we have been married that long. We got married when I was only 16 and he was 18. Sometime I'll tell that story. It is not one that I am proud of, but God really blessed us.

If you would like to join in with us today, just write up your post and link it up over at Garden of Learning. I look forward to hearing what you are grateful for.

That is so funny! I guess great minds DO think alike! I can't wait to see what you post tomorrow. I have mine already planned, but I will let you surprise me and see if we follow the same trend.

Hey, young marriages work! And, whatever the circumstances behind your early nuptials, God has obviously blessed your decision. I was only 21 when I was married, and I wouldn't have had it any other way (i.e., I'm glad I was so young).

Martin Luther: b. 1483-1546: "I am very much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
