So I was thinking about something today. My family would be in utter turmoil if not for the day to day actions of my beautiful wife. I know that I am biased, but I know that there is no one in the world that can do what she does. We have two wonderful boys, though I very often act like I am under 10 years old, so make that three. Things are stressful, but they get done. She is home with the boys while I am at work. She gets BB to school, and J to his tumbling class. Play groups and lunches, all while dealing with J's diabetes on her own. I get to come home in the late afternoon, play with the boys, and then usually sit down to a wonderful meal that she has made. I actually used to do a lot of the cooking, but with a new job and a part time one in the afternoons, it just isn't conducive for our schedule. Add on general cleaning and the never ending laundry, and goodness it adds up.
I do what I can to show how much I appreciate her. More often than not, I let he sleep in on Saturday morning while I do the morning routine of testing, dressing, feeding and covering. This is often met by initial grumpiness, I think because she doesn't feel like she deserves it. Believe me, she does. There is simply no way for me to explain how much she does for our family. Now, I'm not saying that we would be thrown to the wolves while eating out trashcans if I had to take over. I am just saying we are in a much better place with her in place as the captain in the trenches. It is and always has been a partnership, but I know that she is the perfect person to take the stress that we have been dealt. I could say thank you with every breath that leaves my body, for the rest of my life, and it wouldn't be enough. I may not say it enough, but I know it. I hope she does too.
I love you babe!! You are my best friend in the entire world and I so happy God brought me to you! I love you!ReplyDelete
She is pretty sensational, that's for sure :-)ReplyDelete
But she would be the first one to admit, she doesn't do it alone.
The beauty of a strong marriage, a good team, a partnership of parents is that some how it all gets done due to you both. You mutual hard work and commitment to your families, your marriage, and to commitment itself.
I love you.
She is pretty darn special! I know I have really enjoyed the love and support she provides on my blog. Sounds like you guys are a great team!ReplyDelete
What a nice tribute. Lovely to meet you Brian.ReplyDelete
I always think it's a beautiful thing when a husband honors his bride with words.ReplyDelete
God is good!
Brian you are a good man. You two truly complete each others puzzle, the pieces that make you whole. Always hold each other tight and cherish what you have. One of your biggest fans and have been since that summer long ago when you came into our lives. HugsReplyDelete
What a great post. I love when husbands can share how much they appreciate what their wife does. And even if she does not think she deserves Saturday mornings, she does, and I love that you allow her that time to herself!ReplyDelete
Wow! This is a great post and I hope Shannon prints it out and keeps it somewhere she can re-read often. Welcome to blogging! I'm looking forward to meeting you next month at the wedding.ReplyDelete
