To all you wives out there...

I ran across this article the other day and it slapped me right in the face.  Her words are spot on and so moving.  Why is it that we so often tend to treat the ones that we love the most with our ugliest faces? Take a moment and please hop over to this blog and read Debbie’s post.

As a wife and mother, we have so much on our plates. Jarrod helps out ALOT but I feel as the wife, the housekeeping falls mainly on me and honestly it gets very frustrating and daunting when it seems so neverending. (No, obviously, I am not some anti-feminist that thinks a woman’s place is at home barefoot and pregnant slaving away in the kitchen. I am better at housework therefore, I feel responsible for most of the housework.  Jarrod is better at mowing the yard and fixing things, therefore, those jobs are his responsibility but that is another topic for another day).  Our husbands are never going to be the perfect person we want them to be.  They are wired differently than us and no matter how much we nag and complain, we can’t change them to be someone they are not.  Instead, let’s try to appreciate all that they do do for us.  So next time you go to rag him about leaving half empty water bottles all over the house, clothes on the floor, or sitting in the chair watching the hunting channel while you are trying to get dressed, clean up the spilled juice and break up your kids wrestling match all while being on hold with the cable company, just stop and think that there are so many women out there who don’t have that someone to share their life with and would do just about anything to get that dirty clothes pile back for just one more day.
