My Valentine - week 1
Need a challenge that is really worthwhile? Here's one, the "Be My Valentine Marriage Challenge". You'll find all the details on the Women Living Well blog (go here http://womenlivingwell.org ) This challenge doesn't seem hard, but speaking from experience, it just might be.....
Allow me to explain... Often we allow our busy lives to get in the way. Those jobs, kids, housework, cattle (we live on a small farm), and numerous other things just make us....TIRED! We put everything else ahead of couple time when we should really invest time in us. That is why I am determined to take this challenge. I want that hard-workin' man of mine to know just how much I appreciate him and everything he does for me and for our family. There are days when he comes home cold, tired, and hurting (the knee surgery year before last is not helping, anymore) and I know all he wants to do is crash, but he doesn't. He is the chief laundry elf around the house (I love him even more for that!)
I am so thankful God brought him into my life, though times may get a little tense, and I often don't seem grateful, I really am. I love you, Chris Jennings, March 22 will be our 10th anniversary and I'm even more blessed now than I was 10 years ago.
