Do you appreciate the people around you?
My wife injured her left shoulder some years ago and it was really painful, so painful that she couldn’t do the normal things she does every day.
“Don’t worry, honey,” I told her, “I’ll take care of your stuff and mine.”
Little did I know what I was in for.
You see, she runs the horse farm we live on which means that she’s constantly caring for the horses. And she cooks most all of our meals. And she takes care of our daughter’s needs like helping fix hair and choosing which outfits to wear. Then there’s the grocery shopping, the housecleaning, and…well, you get the picture.
So here I was trying to take of my stuff and her stuff. I knew I was in over my head after the first day.
Well, she got better quickly and thank God was able to do most of her stuff. And me? I got better, too, and with a much greater appreciation for what she does to make my life so wonderful.
