Nurse Ashley

I have many jobs here at our home. I am wife and mom, but under those broad titles fall many jobs. Chef, cleaning lady, personal shopper, story teller, accountant, interior decorator, search and rescue (when monkey is missing), landscaper, trash lady and so on ..... You get the idea. And I try to love all of these jobs with all of my heart though trash lady sometimes isn't my favorite.

Nurse was the title I took on tonight. Mr came home from work feeling quite under the weather and had been emptying the contents of his body since he left work. Sorry for the TMI. So I did everything I needed to do to make him comfortable. I sent him to bed with a bucket and a drink and gave him the bedroom to himself. In the midst of all this he thanked me for being so nice. At first I thought, "yeah you're welcome. I am being really nice". But then I thought harder. It is kind of sad that it's obvious even to a sick man that I'm being extra nice.

Sometimes God's timing is so strange to me. He used the moment to show me how I should be treating my sweet hubby all the time. Sick or not. Of course in the back of my mind I have known all along, but I certainly don't do it all the time. Mr deserves a wife who is always striving to be cheerful and willing to do what it takes to show him my love and appreciation for all the hard work he does for our family. So here is my little post about a new resolution:

To treat my hubby (and everyone for that matter) as if they are puking their guts out :)

Now that by your obedience to the truth you have purified yourselves and have come to have a sincere love for other believers, love one another earnestly with all your heart.
