One month at a time

April 30, 2009

in Acts of Service

My bride’s back if finally getting back to normal. Made a few changes to keep it from getting injured again, and  moving back into certain things carefully, but we should be back to normal very soon. Except, we won’t; because I now have a deeper appreciation for what she does. For about a month I’ve done most or all of some things that she has done most or all of for 24 years. It’s been quite a revelation for me.

If you are interested in a similar education, I suggest the following. Make a list of things that she alone does, or that the vast majority of is done by her. Then do each of those things 100% for a month. One a month, each one for a month.

I dare you.

Hi, I have been though this and your assessment is dead on. In my case it was up a 3:30AM to get to work to be home by 2:30 to pick up our son from school, then the tasks around the house, cleaning, laundry, taxi service, groceries shopping... It puts a whole new light on what our wives do. Even with meals from church there was a lot of things to do to keep the house running and my wife and son taken care of. -Steve
