Just look at him! How could you not love a guy like mine. This man is the hardest working, most loving guy I have ever known. As the horrible sick days have dragged on month after endless month, he has never once complained. Never once uttered anything in frustration to me other than "sit down and let me serve you!" He wakes every morning with an alarm ringing in his ears and the sun still hours behind the mountains. He works in a job where he has zero respect. They treat him badly and then expect him to help them whenever they need him. And what does he do (most of the time) He bides his time. He knows there is just no way he can quit now, we need him to be there. The pro's do outweigh the con's. So he spends all day wanting to be home, and most days after at least 12 hours, drags himself through the door with a smile and a hug for each of our kids. They hardly ever see how very tired he his. On the days that I have not been able to get dinner ready he goes to the kitchen and scrambles some eggs or makes peanut butter and marshmallow sandwiches. Then he cleans and changes the kids, tells me to sit on the couch, gets the dishes done, sees to it that scriptures get read (even if some days we only share a spiritual thought) prayers get said and each child gets a story, then he tucks them into bed with a kiss. Then and only then does he hop in the shower for I swear like 5 minutes, before he comes out to sit with me. Then he inevitably falls asleep within minutes. I wake him when I am ready and off to bed we go to do it all over again tomorrow.
