Thankful ~ 7

"I AM THANKFUL" Challenge ~ Day 7

Today I am thankful for my husband.

One day while I was at work I recieved an email from a friend.  The subject heading was, "Have I got a man for you!"  I let out a "OH no!" and a coworker called over the wall, "What's up?"  I told her about the email heading and she headed over.
The message was short, telling me how she and another friend had been talking after I had left the prior evening and they wanted me and the other gals husband's friend (follow that?) to meet.  I stood up to file some papers while my coworker read the email.  As I filed she said aloud while typing, "Sounds great. Send."
The rest as the say, is history.
Our full story would take a very long time to type out and you'd all be snoozing before you'd get to the end, but it's a great story!!
This winter will be our 10 year wedding anniversary!
My husband is not perfect, no on is.  He is however a good provider, a good dad, a hard worder, a good man of God, fiercely  protective of me, great at surprises, is willing to watch Jane Austin and PBS Masterpiece Classics shows with me, does a great evil Dr. Duffenschmirtz impersonation (gotta have kids to get that reference) and loves me a lot.
I am blessed!
Thank you Lord for blessing me with a great husband!!!


  1. What a catch! Watching Jane Austin... priceless!! You are blessed girl! :)

  2. We love Dr. Duffenschmirtz! I, too, am very thankful for the husband God has sent me. Congrats on the 10 years together :)
