I love holidays. Like, LOVE. Especially holidays where I can show a little extra appreciation to my family. My husband has always been supportive but he has definitely gone the extra mile with the homeschool thing. He has been supportive since day one and has done anything and everything to keep me on track as well as sane.
When I first came home fuming that my kids were listening to Beastie Boys and Lady Gaga in school, he didn’t think I was over reacting. When I ran around like a chicken the first year trying to figure out what I was doing, he went along with all my different plans to make this work. When I needed to switch curriculum he didn’t make me feel bad for money we had previously spent. When I needed time away from the kids, he let me take it without feeling guilty.
When I started homeschooling, things I used to do well fell to the wayside. Having dinner on the table by a certain time and pressed clothes every morning became an after thought. He uncomplainingly picked up the slack. When I started to feel like a failure ( which I think is the point of homeschooling) he directed me to the Lord. He picks up exactly where I leave off and he never complains. He is happy to do it which makes me suspicious if he’s even human.
Thanks to his love and support I have been able to get on track and figure out this new life of ours. I wouldn’t have been able to flourish in this journey if I did not have his support and help. I’m so thankful the Lord blessed me with this man and I like to show him how much I appreciate him throughout the year but I like to make it extra special on days I have an excuse to. Happy Father’s Day babe, thank you for being you.
