December 3 in 30 Goals - Week 1

Since I was not sure how much I would accomplish with it being a VERY busy month I picked some goals that are centered around the holidays and shouldn't be overly complicated to complete.

December Goals:

1.  Be a supportive wife to my husband through the Christmas season because it is a rough time for him due to a bad childhood - Success several times this week we spent time just talking and snuggling. He has been expressing his feelings and thoughts instead of bottling them up. I would also like to ask for a prayer request. My husband is currently a contracted employee with his company and will continue to be a contractor until they hire him on this can be anywhere from 6 months-1 year. This has added a lot of pressure to him because he must perform everyday and not have any screw ups. He also needs to get the contract with the company so he can get all the benefits (like holiday pay, vacation, etc.).  He will also get a nice raise when he becomes a full time employee with the company.

2.  Finish decorating and get presents wrapped - Success again the entire house is decorated and now I just need to wrap presents and get some handmade gifts put together for friends/family.

3.  Stay on track with our Advent this year we are doing the Truth in the Tinsel Advent - We are still going strong and haven't missed one day of our Advent. The kids are really enjoying it and are learning a lot this year about the REAL meaning of Christmas.

Any encouraging words or suggestions are always appreciated!

I'm glad your hubby has a supportive wife! I've been blessed with a wonderful husband, although it didn't seem that way in the beginning of our marriage. (I just didn't play my part well!)

I'm cheering you on!
