I never know what I will wake up to.

Ok so I stagger in the kitchen to find my sweet husband deleting stuff he had written on MY blog the night before (while I was sleeping)..Ya gotta love him.
He does his best work at night..Although I have encouraged him to get his own blog...
I would have NEVER put up the picture of me pregnant..Oh well...

Ok so my birthday is in a few days every day this month Scott has brought me home a gift to celebrate my birthday everyday. I have received facial wraps from France (very cool) that he mixes and puts on my face....One day I got pajamas from old navy..
I got a maternity shirt and some great magazines last night. I have got chocolate and
I hate to tell everyone this but I get a 20 min foot rub every-night...This is something he has done for the past year or so... I cannot go to sleep now with out it..and you wonder why I gush over my man...Being married is something to be cherished and not thought of as mundane or boring. It's a dance that you continue to have to learn new steps too and so that keeps it interesting and fresh..Scott and I will celebrate our 16th wedding annv. this year and I find him more attractive now then I did then. He opens all my doors and helps me pick out my clothes when I throw my hands up and say "I have nothing to wear" makes my coffee and brings it to me in bed every morning..Now ladies I'm not saying he is perfect but I'm saying that he is my whole life good and bad. He is the reason that I look forward to raising another child because he helps me to remember that children are gifts...Some of us need to look at what our husbands do right and not what they do wrong all the time...
My marriage changed three years ago when I decided to be my husbands biggest cheerleader instead of his biggest nag. I can honestly say God changed it over night. I stopped doing so much at church and started focusing on my husband instead of giving him what was left of me after drama team and faith team and being with the kids all day. I started being who he needed me to be. In return it was great rewards for me..I didn't know that would happen going in but boy it changed everything..The world tells us that we need to stay busy or work outside the home to be fulfilled or that more than 2 kids will tie you down. The church tells us that we have to be involved in every program to make a difference for our Lord..Our Lord gives us our marching orders in the bible and I encourage you to listen to him instead of the world.
Ok I know this deep but it was on my heart and hey it is my blog...

You said all that so much nicer than I did....ask denise, since she is the only witness to my post before it was erased.

I just love you! You are always challenging me to be a better, more godly mama and wife! Thanks for the challenge today. I'm praying that God will make me my hubby's biggest cheerleader even more this year!

Love you and really want to read Scott's post!

What sweet comments about your husband! My mother went through a similar process with my dad about 10 years after they were married and it transformed both their lives. I have had such a good example to follow for the day I get married.
