Today, I'm thankful for...

I would say that thankful for God and family are always at the top of my list. However, this evening as I passed by the kitchen and heard a flurry of activity, I am particularly thankful for my husband of 38 years. Today, he listened to me sing It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas at least 100 times. Then went with me to a Christmas store. And without fail, always, always always does the dishes after I cook. Always.

Grab you husband "under the mistletoe" and plant a HUGE kiss on him! I married "Scrooge"!!! Doesn't stop me...I love Christmas and the truest of the Reason for the Season! Have a blessed week, dear friend!

I love this! I also have a husband that does the dishes after I cook. We made that arrangement years ago and it taught my sons to help out too.

I have been singing Christmas songs too! Love it!!!!

When I need a quiet spiritual time, I go to your blog, Marlis, for alway an uplifting message. I am also grateful for my husband.

Good man, that husband of yours! As the .38 Special song goes, "Hold on loosely, but don't let go!" He's one for the record books! :-)

So sweet, I love a little help in the kitchen too. I have been thinking about Christmas too and think I am ready to start the Christmas decorating right after Thanksgiving.

My husband is good about rinsing and sometimes scrubbing some dishes after we eat. I love that he does that. Thank you for reminding me that it is definitely something I should be thankful for. laurie
