Today I am thankful...#2 Marcus & #3 My job...

I'm off to a really poor start on this whole thankful thing. I didn't get around to it yesterday. I often post from work at I had a ton of meetings yesterday and after I got home I didn't feel like being on the computer, but I'm back.  So yesterday I was thankful for Marcus my house husband and in this context I'm grateful that he's an awesome dad and actually I'm thankful for him everyday.

I know he feels bad that he hasn't been able to find work especially after all the work he put into getting his degree. On the other hand I love that he's able to be home with the babies. He's so great at it and in our ideal world this was always our hope. That I would work and he would stay home.

Things are tight money wise, because I'm not making much, but we're surviving just fine. I love knowing that the babies are with him, someone I trust. I love how good he is with the babies and that he loves staying home with them.

I always knew, my entire life, that I wasn't cut out to be a stay at home mom. I'm just not. It's not my gift or my calling and Marcus enjoys it. Now if I could just get a raise it would be even more perfect.

Today I'm thankful for my job. Although I'm not quite working in the exact field I went to school for I'm working in the same context and much of job overlaps. I am so very thankful that I love what I'm doing. I was nervous that I would get through grad. school graduate and then find out I really should have gone to law school (although I would still like to go).

I love knowing that I answered my calling and it' a good fit. I love getting to know my congregation and all their quirks, and I love that this is a congregation that allows and encourages me to push them on social justice issues.

Exciting things have been happening lately (that I can't really talk much about) and I'm so excited for what could come in the next 6 months.

Yay for husbands (working or SAH). Life would be so much harder with out them. I hear you on the raise thing...it certainly would make it a little bit easier :-)
