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!
