Life got massively overwhelming for us this month (think a house remodel plus starting your first year homeschooling plus your dryer breaking plus getting jury duty summons plus a husband preparing to do a wedding at Burning Man). Yet in the midst of the crazy, I have seen my husband…his strengths, his gifts, his heart…coming forward in our life.
He has stayed involved in the entire process of our house remodel. He has been connected with each person on the building team, checking in on what’s happening and coordinating our schedule with them in order to get this remodel finished before he leaves town.
When we realized the remodel would back right up to the day he’ll be leaving, he contacted some of his friends to help him move all the furniture into the bedrooms, getting them set up for our first night of sleep in our new rooms. He arranged for someone to clean the house at the same time that he is getting a new dryer delivered and installed. All of this is happening in one afternoon.
Life is crazy. And he is amazing. His ability to handle chaos is phenomenal to me.
In addition to handle the remodel, he’s also been preparing a beautiful and unique wedding ceremony for a friend of his who will be getting married this weekend at Burning Man. My husband is amazing.
A strong man
Able to remain calm in chaos
Able to make things happen
Able to bring peace
Able to love
Able to play
Able to connect
…even when life is scattered and noisy and tiring.
In the midst of the madness that is our life right now, I am grateful for him. For who he is and for all he does.
What do you appreciate about your husband today?
