a week of thanks- day 1

In honor of Thanksgiving this week I am blogging A Week of Thanks. The Lord has blessed me in ways I could never imagine, so this week I want to make an extra effort to be thankful for these blessings. I would love if you would join me this week and share what you are thankful for too! So I can't think of a better place to start than with ..... dun da da dun..... SUPER DAD!

I wish I could take credit for giving Super Dad his name, but I can't. Actually a very close friend of mine started referring to him this way quite a while back and she is so right, super dad he is! I have never met a guy more involved and loving towards his children. He doesn't want to miss anything! He goes to gymnastic classes and class parties and plays, even if he one of the only dads there! He plays games with our kids and has the patience of Job (most of the time!). He is incredible because he does bath and bedtime pretty much every night. He sees that as his special time with them. He is an encourager. He is a great leader. He takes the time to teach them what's important. My kids have great Bible knowledge because their father takes the time to tell them stories every single night. No matter how tired he is and how ready he is to get bedtime over with, he never skips their Bible story. He really is super!

I am so thankful to have a husband who works hard all day and then picks up extra programming jobs at night so I can be home with our kids. He sacrifices so much for us and I don't know if he knows how much we appreciate him. He loves his family and puts us and our needs before everything else and for that I am thankful. I am thankful my sons have a great role model of what a man should be and my daughter a model of what a husband should look like. What a blessing!

So tonight not only do I say "thank you God for blessing us with this wonderful man", but I also say " thank you honey for all you do for us!".
