My favorite seminarian finished his last class project of the school year yesterday. Therefore, overnight I have gone from feeling like a single working mom to a working mom married to a full-time homemaker. As of last week, this was Micah's world:
The laptop, books, glasses, backpack, pen and pencil, phone, watch, water bottle, a glass of wine, and a fork. As long as there was occasionally some food to go on that fork, he was all set to spend endless hours sitting in this spot. Micah works very hard, and really takes his studies seriously. We're very proud of him for that. After all of that hard work, it was time for some well-deserved "rest."
Micah knows that it's tough for me to work full-time and take care of three kids and the household while he's busy with school work. So, once he gets a break, I can usually count on some special surprises to greet me when I get home from work. Here's what I got today:
What a guy! I wish I would have thought to take a picture of the dinner he made, which was fabulous. If this continues for more than a few days, I'm going to be spoiled rotten.
The kids and I are so very thankful to have this man as our husband and father. The Lord has blessed us far more than we deserve. We look forward to this coming year, when rather than "student" he will be "Vicar Micah." We couldn't be more proud. God is good.
