So blessed....


I have a new understanding this week of how truly blessed I am. When I think of all my husband does for me and our family, my heart just melts. We both work fulltime outside the home and have those demands placed on our time as well as the demands of our home.

Unlike many dads, my husband is truly a partner in our relationship and in our family. He helps get the kids ready on mornings he doesn't have to leave the house early... he watches the kids in the afternoon before I get home from work... he cooks... he helps clean... mops the kitchen floor... you get the idea.

A friend was lamenting how her husband expected her to do all things kid-related unless it involved playing with their daughter... then he could participate...

Yes, I am blessed indeed.

That is awesome. And he supports your career change efforts. Double awesome.

And he doesn't seem to mind your road trips to SM - or across the country!

Mighty, mighty good man . . .

This is awesome! Marriages are truly continual tests in teamwork and patience. Life balance today is all about cooperation and communication. I hear so many women complaining about their husbands and how they don't help out with the chores and kids. I can't help but wonder if they have ever had an honest conversation about it all- not the sarcastic or passive-aggressive tones us women (including myself) tend to resort to.

It's fun to celebrate our helpful hubbies!! :) Thanks for reminding me how blessed I am.
