A wonderful woman named Edith Schaeffer had to care for four children, two of whom had major health problems. She writes, “Sometimes when difficult times are being lived through it seems as though the difficulties are simply too mundane to be the least bit worthwhile. Martyrs being tortured or persecuted for their faith at least sounds dramatic. Having to cook, serve meals to two sittings at times without ever sitting down to eat in between yourself, having constantly to clean up spilled and broken things, to empty mounds of garbage, and to scrub a stove that things have boiled over on, or an oven in which things have spilled over and baked to a black crust is neither dramatic nor glamorous.” But there is nothing more glorious than being a great mother. Remember that our culture does not put much value on what mothers sacrifice for us on a daily basis. Make sure everyday you tell your wife how much you appreciate her, don’t leave all the household chores for her and make sure your kids express their gratitude. You simply can’t thank her enough. Pick up the phone right now to call her and tell her how much you love her.
That’s right! Guess I need to do more than I have been to let my wife know how much I appreciate her. Even had two people at work comment on her beauty this morning. I agree with that too, even if I don’t say it as much as I should. Thanks honey, I love all that you do for me and our family.
