Thursday Thanks Tank #121

Guest Blogger today- The Husband.

It's just about 9:30 and Jane Anne is in bed asleep. Just before she closed her eyes she asked me what five things that I'm thankful for. I told her that I am obviously thankful for her, but she would have to read the rest in the morning when she wakes up. So here I go.

1) Work. Jane Anne reminded me last night, once again, that regardless of how many hours I work this week, I'm home at night with her. It's Thursday night and I've clocked about 54 hours so far this week. Tomorrow should be a little bit shorter though. I'm thankful, that in this pretty rough economic time, I have a challenging job with a good company. God has provided for us in a great way.

2-5) Jane Anne. We've been through a rough run this week. I say 'we', I mean Jane Anne and the kids. David's had a heckuva time this week with his asthma. Thomas has been fighting a sinus infection/ cold/ yuck for a month +, Elsie has been up at least an hour early every day this week as she's fought and lost to a cold, and Jane Anne has caught it too. And... She's taken care of them without any help from me this week. The flip side of me working ridiculous hours this week is that she's been left to do it all herself. And- she's in the middle off organizing a crazy fundraiser for the PTO. The passion and dedication she shows for our family and the PTO is impressive. She's amazing. And she's making a difference in a LOT of kids and teachers lives.

Take a little time to think about all of the ways you're blessed today. you won't regret it!

What a good husband...not sure mine would post for me or even know how! Even though I am struggling to like my job at the moment, I, too, am thankful that I have one right now! And here is hoping and praying that everyone get healthy and QUICK at your house! Take care!
