Well, when he got home last night, I let him do all of his normal things (go to the bathroom–it’s a long ride home LOL, get changed, say hello to the kids, sit relax, etc.).
When it was truly clear to me that he didn’t have a clue, I said to him “Oh, Happy Anniversary”.
He looked at me with a blank stare and then replied with a question: “of our first date?”.
To which I replied and said “No, not our first date! Our 21st Wedding Anniversary”.
He then looked away momentarily, did the figures in his head, gasped as he threw his hand over his mouth in shock, and then said “Happy Anniversary”.
I forgave him–what else was I going to do? Sigh, such is life!
Thanks again Ladies! I appreciate it!
Today, on this Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for:
21 years of marriage! TODAY is our wedding anniversary, even though hubby hasn’t yet remembered.
My children–I love them more than I can possibly ever say.
That the Lord protected my 3 children during their week at church camp last week.
For all of the staff and everything they did to make church camp so awesome for my children!
That the Lord has protected my children on the bike rides and walks they’ve taken.
American Soldiers/Military and the extreme sacrifices they have made and continue to make each and everyday so that I can live here in a free country with my family.
For computers and the web that allows me the opportunity to try to supplement my husband’s income and communicate with other ladies at the same time.
For BLOGS and all the wonderful ladies who run them and all the help and support they provide to others through their blogs.
For the cooler weather we’ve had so often lately–I love it!
That all of my homeschool reports were received at the school AND they were approved!
For the birds–I just love to watch them and listen to them.
For this “Thankful Thursday” activity and the fact that it forces me to see the blessings God gives.
