My wife rules. For anyone who’s been around EL for very long, you’ll already know that my wife, Kim is the solid backbone of ALL that I do. She gets to be my wife, which lord knows would destroy most ordinary females, she gets to be super mom to 3 great kids, and about a billion other things.
I’ve been thinking about all she does for me lately. Have I ever mentioned here or elsewhere how much she supports my extra life (pun intended) It’s pretty amazing. Never once has she said that this is silly, or a waste of time, or dumb in anyway. Instead, she helps me brainstorm, clears time for me, ships my packages, etc etc.
To top it off, I am in charge of a boys youth group, 12 to 18 year olds…16 or so of them, and last night, we had a big combined dinner with the young womens group for what we called an “Etiquette Dinner”. Basically its a chance to talk to the kids about good dating ideas, how to treat each other, guys holding doors for girls, dressing nice, etc. And of course, to chow down on some good food.
Kim has no direct responsibility for any of this, yet she single handedly cooked a full three course meal for 50 people. Not once did she act like it was “work”, or “hard”. She loved doing it, and the kids think she is the greatest chick in the history of earth as a result. It went off without a single hitch, and the food rocked…and we did it all for 75 bucks. To top it off, she is taking 5 of the girls there prom dress shopping tonight. Crazy. This is one tiny example. Did I mention that this is he 3rd or 4th year in a row she’s done it?
Anyway, I just don’t say enough about her and the incredible light she is in my life. I could go on and on, but I think I have it out of my system. I just feel really lucky. (love you, babe)
