An Action Speaks A Thousand Words

It's been a difficult couple of weeks. A Glance Into My World has more details so I won't have to re post it here.

My Knight has shown with actions, just how much I and our children mean to him. He, like everyone else is a busy man. He leaves for work at 6a. and arrives at home between 5-6p. He's a baseball umpire and the president of the little league. He is always getting calls. Some are good and some are well... not so good. I don't know how he does it, but he stays calm and collected. Well, I do know, it's because God dwells within him.

I shared about how busy he is because things have been a little topsy turvy around here. Through it all... God has given us grace, peace and mercy. My Knight has done the groceries, done his ironing, helped to take care of the ones that have been under the weather, has cooked, kept up with the "outdoor" duties, and ran back and forth to the pharmacy for medications. All this is expected. It's as it should be. It's how it's suppose to be. For so many it's not. that... breaks my heart.

He never once complained about cleaning up our child's mess. He didn't belittle the one who wasn't able to "make it" to the restroom. He stood by and comforted the one that was moaning cause the pain was too much for his little body. He gently rubbed our little one's belly as he spoke softly trying to comfort him. Along with the one's that have been ill, I too have been getting very little sleep. So, I try to catch some sleep when I can. My Knight doesn't wake me up. He lets me sleep and rest. He doesn't ask, what can I do to help? He sees and does what is needed. He'll call on his way home from work and see if there was anything he needs to bring home to his family.

My Knight is a man like no other. I will forever be grateful to God for bringing the two of us together. Yes, an action speaks a thousand words... I keep hearing/seeing, "I LOVE YOU".
I'm so blessed...

You are truly blessed with your husband. My husband is the same way. I love to hear you speak about him. I'm really glad that you put the link to your other blog in the post. I'm sure I didn't realize that you wrote another one or I would have read that, too!!! I've bookmarked it and am going to go through those posts!!

I certainly hope that all of you are feeling better soon!! Those stomach flu bugs are just so contagious and really make you feel terrible.

Thank you for your kind words about my dog. I really appreciate it!!
