Sunday night this was the picture Jonathan had texted to me around 10:00 p.m, with text that read "off to work for the night". This week he’s headed off to Oklahoma , working night hours. As many of you may know, I-5 has been slammed with work. Although we are so thankful for the prosperity it brings, we miss seeing our daddy. I just wanted to do this post in honor of my wonderful husband Jonathan. I am so thankful that he goes out every day or night and works for me and our girls. I think it is very important for wives to show their husbands their thankfulness in simple, visual and physical ways. I have found that simple things like keeping a clean and warm home show him that I care, as well as much affection when he is home. Also doing extra little things makes him feel special. For example, I know Jonathan really likes chocolate ice cream and crunchy green grapes so when he is gonna be home I like to make sure the fridge is all stocked up. O yes, and most importantly SPENDING HIS MONEY WISELY! I am not saying I have attained to this on all levels, but I like to make it a game and see how much I can save in a week. Even the basic things like making sure his laundry is folded neatly and in his drawers can speak volumes, it shows that he is on the for front of my mind. I like the girls to be a part of honoring their dad to so Emma and I will paint pictures for daddy, (good bonding time for mommy as well) and give them to him when he gets home. I also record lil' videos of her on my iphone and e-mail them to him, gotta love technology! Anyway I did not write this post to say I am perfect in some of these ways of showing honor to my husband, but to share with you ways I have seen create peace and show Jonathan I love him very much. I am hoping this will encourage any wife who is reading this to show their husband how thankful they really are for the life he lays down for them every day.
