Your Beyond Blessed Wife
May 1, 2022
As your workday ends and I see 5:00 come closer on the clock, I know you will soon be home. You will provide me with a break and baby assistance until bedtime. All four boys watch out the window when I say, “Daddy will be home soon.” I wonder if you know how excited they are when they see your truck pull in. As you cross the threshold, the spirit of the house is changed. Your presence brings new life into our home. After chasing them around all day, with baby in arm, your tranquility cleanses my stress away. You are the undeviating peace in our family.
If your day was unpleasant, you don’t let our boys see it in your actions or on your face. I know you though, and sometimes I can see that your day was frustrating and that all you want is to relax. That is definitely a challenge when we have five little ones depending on us for dinner, play time and tucking in each night.
When the kids are finally in bed, and the house is quiet, you listen to me vent about my stressful day. I ask about your day, but you’re never one to complain. You are wonderful at listening to me, when you know that is what will calm my evening. I appreciate that more than anything. You always know how to lift me when my spirit is falling.
You always have a dedicated plan for the weekends. Most others are relaxing, or out having fun. Your plans are always to get one step closer to being the best provider your family needs. You are normally working on projects around the house, on customer jobs, or working on getting the next job ready to begin.
You are always concerned about making sure that your employees will have ample and steady work. That is quite selfless. Work won’t come around by itself, after all. Getting things done and having them done right is something that most people admire and strive to implement in their own lives. We both have that drive for excellence. It may be in different areas, but that is what makes our bond so strong: picking one another up in our weak seasons.
When you aren’t with your family, you are helping others with whatever assistance they may need. I need you to know that your conscientiousness is not overlooked; not just by me, but by those you pass your generosity on to as well. You are a true friend.
Your hard work never goes unnoticed. I know sometimes that I say you’ve got the easier job of the two of us because you get to leave the house everyday, and you often agree with me. Our five children (all under 6), can be quite the handful. But, the grass is always greener on the other side. Right? Or maybe it’s just better to find the beauty of where you’re at, and not envy another's journey. Each path has a meaning and purpose.
Honestly, I couldn't do what you do. You always have your needs come last and never take a break. You love us more than anything and I know you do it all for your family. Being shunned by your family made you stronger. The road was painful at first, but I believe it also made you see the world in a new light; to show and give more love than you ever saw or received; to let your children know that you will always love them, as Jesus loves us.
I feel your struggle, and your strength. I see everything you do for our family. Just know that all you do is appreciated beyond measure. You love and provide as God instructed, with a joyful manner all throughout.
After working all weekend, sleeping four hours, and then starting out again at 2 A.M. on a cold Monday morning, I just needed the world to know how lucky and thankful we are that God blessed us with you.
