Last night Bible answer woman, told me how sweet my husband is. I quickly tried to bump him of his pedestal and crack a joke about his true motives for being so wonderful. We had a good chuckle at his expense. But, I have to admit, she is right. My husband is so sweet.
Here's your part:
"How sweet is he?" Notice we said "He".
Good. This is a Christian Right Wing Blog with Male/Female couples.
He is so sweet, let me tell you what he does. But first a little background.
This week is an unusually hectic week for our family. Notice no blogs. Our church is hosting a Bible Conference. This is where families and missionaries all gather at our church for some of the finest preaching and teaching around. Now, I have been busy working on my 'stuff' for our Children's workshop and trying to get our house into a non-embarrassing company is coming state. We are hosting a family and I can't ask them to wait out on the lawn all week.
Back to my sweet husband.
He is so sweet, on Sunday afternoon, he grocery shopped for me without my involvement. He took my van and my coupon box and bought the food we would need for the week. I thought he was only getting cream and bread. Now some may be saying to themselves, big deal. This is a huge deal. He not only shopped, but he sensibly shopped. There were no convenience foods or Twinkies bought. He bought only what was needed. He also saved 30% at the store with sales and coupons.
This morning while getting ready for our day the worship of Gman began. What a pleasure it was to find the things I needed. I don't know if I have ever mentioned how much I dislike grocery shopping.
I HATE IT.
Why do I feel so strongly about this?
This is the chore that never goes away. Like dirty dishes, the need to do this just reappears every few hours.
I'll never forget the week one of my children had pneumonia. It was too cold to leave the house. I tried this service called PeaPod. This is where you order your groceries online and they deliver them to your home. The nice man actually put the bags on your counters. I resisted the urge to hug this stranger. Now if I weren't such a tightwad, I would do this every week. The only thing stopping me is the $10 delivery fee. Hey, now that I think about this, only $10. But I have Gman, who needs Peapod?
Gman really shines in this area. He calls me on his way home all the time to ask me if I need anything. This helps me to avoid grocery shopping, and cut it down to once a week.
Now, this is where you come in.
How sweet is your husband? Or wife? I now know there are male bloggers out there. How about if you are single, what would the man of your dreams do that would make you smile. Maybe just hold a job, pick up the check at a restaurant or perhaps vacuum your car for you. The possibilities for sweetness are endless.
Leave a comment but remember, this is a family blog. Also, if you can't think of anything, make it up. If you don't, I may start to worry about you and your beloved.
Thanks for stopping by,
I welcome reader comments with open arms. I also understand if you aren't the commenting or hugging type of person, you can drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
