Man, the days fly by, don't they? This is my 8th edition of My Husband Rocks! Well, if you want to be technical, my 9th, but that one had to be abbreviated until the next day because I had peeps coming over. Thanks to Katy Lin, I have thought more deeply about why I love my husband. You'd think I'd be tired of talking about him. Not a chance.
He is my hero. No kidding. As a homeschooling mom, some days are just rotten. I have to be honest with you, some days I want to quit. Wednesday was one of those days. A terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day if I've ever seen one. I didn't want to call my husband because I knew he was sick of my whining about how Kiddo detested Math. So when he called, what did I do? Whined to him about how Kiddo detested Math. But that's putting it just mildly.
No, he didn't like hearing we were having issues. But beyond that, he came up with solutions. He's good at that. And calming me down when I need it most. Sometimes he does it in a way that I know he means business and to continue on in my whiney,
hormonal emotional, irrational way would be a mistake. More often than not, though, he is able to calm me down with sweet, encouraging words that let me know (even though I don't believe it most of the time) that I'm a good teacher, a good mom, and a good wife, and not to give up. Giving up is the last thing I want to do for his sake, as well as my son's.
Thank you, my Sweet, for your encouragement this week. You mean the world to me.
