It's Friday again, that means it's time to give out my weekly assignment, your homework for this weekend.
I doubt I'm the only one, but sometimes it's easy to get caught up in what I wish I had instead of enjoy what I have. Father's Day got me thinking about my husband. He's a cabinet maker and he works really hard for us. I know I'm lucky to be a stay-at-home mom. If I had a salary this year he wouldn't have to work so hard, and yet he does. But, sometimes I think wouldn't it be nice if my husband had a master's degree and an amazing job, wouldn't it be nice if we could afford one of those beautiful homes in the foothills, wouldn't it be nice it we had 2 nice cars with leather seats, wouldn't it be nice if we could go on a vacation at some island resort. . . . and so on . . .
Even though someday I would like all those things, I really appreciate where we are now. I have a hard working husband, a cute little boy and we are renting a great townhouse with lawn care included. Why am I wishing for more? Do you guys do this too?
Your assignment is to love where you are, enjoy what you have and make sure your husband knows he meets all of your expectations and you appreciate him. I never want my honey to think he's not doing enough and that his sacrifice goes un-noticed.
Get it done this weekend, and leave a comment or email me with your thoughts/feelings/experiences.
