This weekend was pure bliss. Hubby has been working a lot lately so, I’ve been doing this “solo parenting” thing for a few weeks. Well, he had the whole weekend off and it was wonderful. My back has really been bothering me as my stomach continues to get bigger, which is expected, but it doesn’t make it easier. Saturday night, Hubby told me he was going to make dinner, anything I wanted. I told him I wanted Meatloaf so that’s what he made, along with baked potatoes, green beans, and rolls. While dinner was in the oven he also cleaned the kitchen and did dishes. The whole time he was doing that and the boys were playing, I got to sit on the couch and read. It was nice to just relax.
Then Sunday morning, I woke up to the smell of something delicious. I stumbled my way out of bed and into the kitchen to see what it was and there Hubby was, making breakfast for us. To say I was shocked was a complete understatement. After breakfast he helped me out with the boys so much and continued to clean up the house. I had a smile on my face as I asked him, “What did I do to deserve this?” He looked at me, gave me a kiss, and said, “What did you do? Well, you put up with me working a lot, you take care of our kids, and your run our household. That’s why you deserve this.” With my pregnancy hormones I was fighting back tears.
He also made dinner again Sunday night. It was seriously such a relaxing weekend and I felt completely spoiled with all the help. The boys were pretty darn good all weekend and by Sunday night, we were rested, and ready for school to start today. This weekend I was reminded of how truly blessed I am to have the husband I do. He blew me away this weekend and I couldn’t stop thanking God for the wonderful man I married.
What has your Husband done lately that just made you stop and go, “Wow, I’m so lucky to have him.”?
