Thankful for Unexpected, Good News...and the Best Husband EVER!!!

Today I got some surprisingly good news. I don't know if I have shared with my fellow bloggers my decision to return to school. I am currently an accountant, but after doing some soul searching and many hours of prayer, I have felt some time that the Lord was leading me to be a math teacher. I had applied for the teaching program at my local college and was told to be eligible for the program that I needed to take the Praxis I. Once I registered for the Praxis, I had only 3 weeks to study, so I did some good, old-fashioned cramming. I ended up passing 2 of the 3 parts, but was pleased with my test scores. I had only failed the 3rd part by 3 points, so I felt that I did really good for the time I had to study. Anyway, today I got a letter from my college that said that my scores had been re-calculated by the department chair and my scores were high enough to enter the program now! I couldn't be happier!!!! So, I will be returning to school this spring to pursue my passion for teaching, children, and math. So, this is one thing I am certainly thankful for. (Thank you God!)

This week, I chose my husband to do something extra nice for. He's been my rock through the circumstances we've faced and I know that he is the reason I keep on going. He's put up with my mood swings, depression, highs and lows, and he's never once complained or made me feel like I was inferior. I should show him everyday how thankful I am to be his wife, but I tend to take the things most important to me for granted at times. I know he wants to be "enough" for me should we not have kids...and I know if it comes to that point, that he will be. So, today I bought him something I thought he'd wasn't much, but it was just a little something to show him I was thankful for him. (Lord, for every time I have asked for more, I want to thank you for the kind of love you have already blessed me with in my marriage. It's real, unconditional, and everlasting, just like the love You have for me.)

Have a blessed weekend!

That is wonderful that you got into the teaching program. I am sure you will make a wonderful teacher. Will be praying for you as you start this new season of your life. Thank you for your kind words. Have a wonderful weekend with your hubby.

Congratulations, Elaine! That's great news. What college? I'm praying about going back and finishing, but I know the timing would have to be God's.

I've been praying for you this week! I didn't get a chance to talk to you much last Monday night - maybe soon.
