E is for Effort
Blake is great at doing the tedious jobs in the house. The jobs I hardly ever get to and truthfully don't enjoy. For example, he cleaned the rafters in our bedroom. Who does that?! Well, he was tired of the dust we couldn't see and he cleaned them. And let me tell you, there was plenty of dust up there. He scrubs the little sections of things I don't even think of. He cleans the car to such an immaculate condition that I actually stay on top of it. He cleans the gutters on the house and ENJOYS it! He scrubs the tub and the grout and never says a word about it. He cleans the little spots on the carpet. He washes the table with the good soap until it shines. He shines the sink and makes it smell glorious. Now all of this might seem like I am a real slacker in the house cleaning department. I am not that bad! But how lucky am I to have a husband who jumps in on the little things? The things that just don't get done very often because of kids and life and just being tired at the end of the day? I used to tell him I felt bad because he was helping and it made me feel like I wasn't doing enough. He would just say, "I know you need help so I am helping." And there was never a more blessed woman anywhere in the world!
I also had an awesome picture to go with this but I can't figure out how to get it to come over from my phone. I never said I was a computer nerd.=)
