I work at a daycare/preschool. I'm the teacher/caregiver/primary hugger of the newborn room. I love holding the babies. I love the baby smell, cuddling them close and rocking. There are days when I truly love what I do. There are days I am just thankful for the paycheck. And there are days when I just have no desire at all to be there!!!
Today was one of those days. I knew it could be a little crazy with all the sickness going on around town. Turns out I was right. Two of our teachers went home sick today. One teacher's little one is in the hospital. One teacher was already sick. One sub had to leave early due to school, one lady already had a scheduled day off and our director is on maternity leave after just having her baby last Monday. Crazy, huh? I ended up having to be in charge of both my class and the next one up and lunches for the preschool, with only one lady to help me.
It was a crazy situation, so I did a crazy thing. I called this guy...
Yep! That is my hubby. My supporter and best friend.
How many wives can say their hubby was willing to go rock a baby for them? Who can say their hubby not only rocked and fed babies, but helped clean the kitchen area and washed dishes at their work place? Would your hubby drop what he was doing on his day off to help you out of a bind at work?
I hope your answer would be yes to all of those, for I certainly know the blessing of having a hubby with a big servant's heart, and I wish that for everyone. Sorry, if I seem to be bragging a little, but I think he deserves it today.
One of the ladies I work with, who unfortunately has been going through some marital problems, said "One of these days I will find me a good man like that." Kevin heard and replied, "I not necessarily good, just trained!" :)
Thank you Lord for providing me with a mate who supports me in all I do, both on the good days and the bad. I'm very blessed.
