No, it is not our anniversary or anything like that. Tim has been preaching a series about appreciating your spouse, and well, mine has given me a lot to appreciate this weekend. I have been sick with a stomach virus since Friday. Mike brought home Pepto and ginger ale. He took the kids trick-or-treating and out to eat Friday night by himself without me asking. He volunteered for this big job to give me some "quiet time" as he put it.
I spent the entire day in Nashville on Saturday and left a house cleaning list for him thinking that some of it might get done. He got all of it done, gave Lauren a bath, and made it to dinner on time. Sunday I slept from church to church to recover and he kept things quiet so not to wake me. On top of all of this, he told me I was beautiful when I woke up. I assure you that I was not!
I am adding my husband to my thankful list. Without him I would not be able to hold it all together and would not have nearly as much fun!
