My Husband Is Great!

Tomorrow on my other blog, I will share how Jonathan's various diagnoses effect the rest of the household if he's having a bad day. Tomorrow on this blog, I'm going to post High Five Friday listing the Five Reasons I Love My Husband. I haven't started the list yet, so I don't know if this fact will make it or not.

However, I love my husband because once he understands my state of mind and health when he walks in the door from work, he immediately begins pitching in. Yesterday he helped Faith finish her homework and took Jonathan's dictation to complete his homework. He helped clean up dinner and set up for the weekly in home bible study group. And then he allowed me to go upstairs and go to bed. I even heard him chase the kids downstairs to the basement so not to disturb me. I slept 12 hours and woke up with the migraine in the same spot and intensity as the night before. If I had thought to ask him before I went to bed, he would've had my migraine medication and a glass of liquid on my night stand so that I could take it immediately upon waking this morning. Alas, I did not. I had to drag myself down the stairs to get it. It took about two hours before it kicked in this morning.

I think I'll give my husband the night off tonight and let him drive over to see Joshua's "away" soccer game. Maybe he'll even see Joshua play.

The first "home" game the coach has benched Josh...a first in his life. It's been hard for him to take (as well as for us to take). But he's playing on a team of 15 Seniors with winning records. The coach is going to and has played the seniors over the four juniors during the close games. The fact that the coach has played Josh in most other games is a compliment and testimony to Josh's skill....especially considering there are two other juniors who've never left the bench this year. The second home game Josh got to play six minutes. And the coach even was prepared to send Josh back on the field when one of the seniors looked to be hurt.

  1. Oh, how sweet, Corrie. You are blessed. I think we sometimes forget that men need encouragement and acknowledgment as do women. I'm glad to hear you speak so wonderfully of your husband. It's great.
