If you’ve looked around my lil corner here at all, you’ll see my true passion is on one topic alone….
This is who I am, it is what I was created for, it is my God given calling.
I’m not a perfect help meet.
Sorry, if I disappoint you.
Yet, it’s true.
I love my husband, and I strive to help him in any way I can…..
At times though, I fail……
More often than I’d like to admit, and probably more often than I realize.
There are specific things I know that are always my “job”. Things that help my husband, things he doesn’t have to worry about remembering to do.
The home is my responsibility. From cleaning to cooking, to laundry and bringing firewood in the house.
Teaching our kiddos and getting them to and from all their activities/classes is my responsibility.
Paying the bills, gardening and mowing the lawn are also on my list of to-do’s.
My number one priority is my husband. Helping him however and whenever he needs me.
His needs…..wants……desires……all come before mine.
Even if I don’t feel like it.
Though it isn’t what I had planned for the day.
While it takes a lot of time I *think* would best be spent elsewhere.
If my husband requests something of me, and I am able, I am called to and strive to be there for him 100%…..
I am a planner, and my hubby is a last minute type o’ guy. This is probably one of my biggest struggles as a help meet.
My lack of patience and raised voice are my hubby’s biggest frustrations with me. This is where I am striving to focus on being a better help meet this year.
I tend to say things under my breath and think such when I’m frustrated with hubby.
Through it all I remember……
Each day is a new day with no mistakes in it…..
With new grace…..
Though I fall short of being the help meet God envisioned when He created Eve, I am a work in progress. He’s not done with me yet! <—- True for Others Too!
