Thankful For My Husband

Join us for Gratituesday at Heavenly Homemakers.

Today I'm thankful for my husband. I probably should have written this LAST week because our anniversary was actually Dec 15th!

We've been together for 5 1/2 years and married for 4. We have one spirited, adorable, loving son with another on the way in just a few weeks (seriously, like 4 weeks).

I'm thankful that he's been an amazing father and husband. He went through Air Force Basic Training so that he could provide for our family. When I said I wanted to stay at home he supported me 100%. He's been sacrificing time to himself and time with his family to go back to school so that he can advance his career. (Trust me, 2 nights a week makes a HUGE difference)

Has marriage been easy? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA........no. Has it been totally and utterly worth it? YES!!!

We've had our ups and downs (who doesn't?) and come out of it stronger than ever. He stands beside me when I feel strongly about something and holds me when I'm weak.

Hug your husband today.

Dancing In The Minefields lyrics

I was nineteen, you were twenty-one
The year we got engaged
Everyone said we were much too young
But we did it anyway

We bought our rings for forty each

From a pawn shop down the road
We made our vows and took the leap
Now fifteen years ago

We went dancing in the minefields

We went sailing in the storm
And it was harder than we dreamed
But I believe that's what the promise is for

"I do" are the two most famous last words

The beginning of the end
But to lose your life for another I've heard
Is a good place to begin

'Cause the only way to find your life

Is to lay your own life down
And I believe it's an easy price
For the life that we have found

And we're dancing in the minefields

We're sailing in the storm
This is harder than we dreamed
But I believe that's what the promise is for

So when I lose my way, find me

When I loose love's chains, bind me
At the end of all my faith, till the end of all my days
When I forget my name, remind me

'Cause we bear the light of the Son of Man

So there's nothing left to fear
So I'll walk with you in the shadowlands
Till the shadows disappear

'Cause he promised not to leave us

And his promises are true
So in the face of all this chaos, baby,
I can dance with you


  1. beautiful, and happy anniversary :-)

  2. What a beautiful post!
    My husband went back to school part time a few weeks ago and I know what a difference it makes.

    Happy anniversary! I can't wait to come back and hopefully see some pictures of the new miracle in a few weeks...

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  3. This is an excellent post! We all need to keep supporting each other to be the wives the Lord intended us to be and to run our homes as it should be run. I am blessed reading about your grateful attitude toward your husband.

    Thank you for commenting on Living Well Moms on my guest post about setting priorities. In response to your question: You may surely share the "to-do List" on your blog...no problem at all. :)
