My husband is my hero.

I know some of you are probably wondering where in the world I have been. As many know, the woes of the first trimester often leave a woman tired and sick. Both of which have been me. Then Elizabeth came down with her first real virus, which has made her quite the mama's girl (as to be expected). Needless to say, I have been feeling nearly depleted.

But my sweet husband has stepped in to save the day. He has taken over laundry duties, so I won't have to bring the clothes up and down the basement stairs (I am still the folder/sorter). And, he has taken over cooking responsibilities, temporarily. In fact, he has meal-planned and has a menu for dinner (

Here are some of the menu items:
  • John Owen's Dijon Pork
  • Luther's Beef Stew
  • Calvin's Skillet Chicken
  • Augustine's Tex-Mex Chicken
  • Edward's Cheesy Chicken and Veggies.

He has simply amazed me at his willingness to serve me during this season. I am so thankful for a husband who loves me selflessly and is eager to serve me whenever he can. I honestly don't know how moms do it without such helpful husbands.

Thank you dear husband, for your leadership in exampling how to serve your family. Seeing you work a full-day's dry-wall, and come home to joyfully prepare dinner for us is such a tangible sight of how Christ sacrificially loves his bride. I am truly humbled. Thanks for loving us, and loving the Gospel even more.
