Thankful Thursday

I have a great friend who started doing thankful Thursday.  She thinks it is cheesy but I love seeing her heart on these post.  So in hopes of spurring you on dear friend I will join in. 

This week I am thankful for my wonderful husband.  The saying absence makes the heart grow fonder has for sure proven true for me over this year.  He is traveling every other week now and I miss him terribly.  And in his absences I have really seen that after all these years we have really meshed as a team - we have become one.  So when he is gone half of me is too.  Through my struggles over the last year he has been a darn close to perfect model of Christ.  He has loved me and served me sacrificially without grumbling or complaining.  He loves my children SO INCREDIBLY well.  He is the best and I love him and am oh so thankful for him.
I am also thankful this week for my friends that blog.  This season of my life has had me at home ALOT.  And I haven't had the energy or courage to spend much time with friends.  And the last few weeks I have been caring for a sick child or being sick myself.  So my link to life has been blogs.  So dear friends, I have kept up with you through your words.  And for that I am thankful.  And along those lines I am thankful that some of my friends have the courage to write cheesy blog post that encourage me and lift my spirits.  So keep them coming dear friends.

Oh and one last HUGE thanks.  When I picked Jake up at school today he grinned from ear to ear when he saw me.  He slept through the night for the first time in 4 days last night.  He said his ear did not hurt all day.  So thanks for your prayers.  It was a good day for him.

you crack me up!! I may have a few more T.T.'s in me...we'll see :)

It's funny how seasons of life make you love your man all the more. With all these kids under foot, I realize I could not do it by myself...nor do I want to! It makes me appreciate the JerBear all the more!

I'm sooo glad Jake is feeling better!
