As you can probably relate life can get hectic and very busy. Sometimes we (us, you and all those other people) get caught up with work, school, kids, errands and a list of things to do a mile long. In turn we forget to thank our significant other for the big things or small things that they do.
With all of life’s distractions its easy to forget to say “Thank You” Thankful Thursday is a day set aside that we make sure we thank our significant other for the big things or the little things that they do or have done. We encourage you to take this time to thank your significant other for things they have done. You can write them a note, send them an email, text them or even tell them face to face… The point is let them know!
While you’re at it leave a comment below sharing what you are thankful for!
Being a teacher sometimes (often) is hard work. Work at home or on the weekend, calling parents on the way home, finishing lesson plans on Sunday, looking up DHS’s phone number, asking fellow teachers for advice, researching new strategies, talking to the principle after school on a Friday, the list could go on and on.
The past few weeks I have been a little pressed at school. It is the end of the school year so my nerves are a bit shorter, but also the kids attitudes are a bit stronger. They have been seeming to push to see how much they can get away with.
On my way home one day last week I was a bit worked up and upset about a few situations. I told myself that I would not bring the work home with me. Once home Ryan was awaiting me, as I had left work late. He asked me how my day was. I explained to him that I did not want to bring this home with me to stew on, however I did want to share the day with him. It’s like wanting to tell your best friend about your day: the good, the bad and the ugly. I told him about the events of the day and he listened. After that I felt like I could just move on.
Ryan is really good about listening when he realizes I want to just tell him something, yet helping provide solutions when I am asking for guidance. On this Thankful Thursday I am thankful that my husband is my best friend and that my best friend is wonderful when it comes to knowing the difference between my need for a listener or the need for ideas.
What are you thankful for today in your spouse or your relationship?
