Thankful Thursday - 2/2/2012

So I had this long post typed up and the site decided to have issues and not post it, so now it's lost. I'm scatter-brained now and I have no idea what all I wrote about - I'm just going to try to rewrite as much as I can remember.

  1. I am thankful for my husband who has been working so hard (mostly by himself) on getting the boys beds done. He comes home after work and starts working on the beds while I'm making dinner, takes a break for dinner, and goes right back to working on the beds. He hasn't gotten to do this everyday because we've had random little things that have come up and he's not had the time to do it, but he's trying as hard as he can, and that makes me so happy.
  2. I am thankful for the space in the basement that we can use to build the beds and the school room items that need to be built. If we didn't have this space, I don't think he could build the beds.
  3. I am thankful for my beautiful family, who amaze me everyday. My children are so smart and so interesting. They know so many things, I'm in shock. Even my three year old, she says so many things that just make my jaw drop. My almost eleven month old already seems so smart. Everyday, I'm just in awe of how amazing and smart they are.
  4. I am thankful for my friends, who become a more integral part of my life everyday. They encourage me and build me up. They give me advice, and help me figure out what to do in situations.
  5. I am thankful for books - especially the really good, Christian books. I have an issue with Christian books because a lot of the authors don't seem to delve too deep into the issues. It seems so weird to me that people (Christians) are so put off by the idea of really showing the true issues and how deep they run. They just want the nice stuff; they don't understand that to really get the attention of an unbeliever, you have to show the dirty stuff, not just the nice. You have to show the true nature of humans, or humans will never relate.
  6. I am thankful for the brain that God gave me that allows me to do good things for my family. If I didn't have the intelligence that I do, I wouldn't be able to homeschool, to read as much as I do, to comprehend all the things I need to do everyday - I just wouldn't be as good as I am now, and I know that I'll be better as I continue to learn and grow, because of God.
