I'm sure that's a sign I'm far too busy! ;)
I'm grateful hubby and I had the perfect opportunity to go on ANOTHER date night. (I know ~ pinch me, right? I must be dreaming!! TWO date nights in ONE WEEK!!) Peanut and Fidget were both invited to a sleep-over birthday party and so I rode with The 'Man for the second half of his trip from the bush up to the mill.
After he'd unloaded (pictured below), we went out for a late dinner before hopping back into the semi for the 2-hr return trip home.
I'm grateful my husband has a job, even though it often feels considerably less than ideal for everyone. Sometimes it feels like he just can't win ~ either he's working and we've got a good, steady income but he's never home, or he's home lots but then we've got no income. For him so often it feels like a lose-lose situation. I'm thankful he puts in some very serious effort as the sole provider for our family. I wish it would be easier for him.
But I'm so grateful that the reason he's gone lots isn't because he doesn't want to be at home. I'm thankful I can reassure my girls that their daddy loves them very much even though he isn't always home while they're awake to say it himself, and that we know it's the truth. I'm not just making something up to make them feel better.
I'm grateful for a small but wonderful bunch of women who love our church and I'm looking forward to a year of getting together to celebrate that!
