At Thanksgiving dinner we were going around the table saying what we were thankful for. The kids said things like “family,” “everything,” “food”–the usual.
Having lost our fifth child recently at twelve weeks, I said that I was especially thankful for the children the Lord has given me.
Then it was Jason’s turn. He smiled really big, looked at me, and said, “I’m thankful for Esther my wife . . . ”
I was thinking ,“Aw.”
“ . . . because she homeschools.”
And people ask me why I homeschool! It’s what I’ve got to do to rate around here!
