If you are a regular reader to my blog you know that I have had a busy couple of weeks helping out at my husband’s office. I don’t usually work much at the office. I shop for supplies, help pay some bills, and run errands. But that is it. I have not had much to do with the everyday work for about eight years. So this was something new for me.
The last couple of weeks have been exhausting, but well worth it. I am glad that I had a chance to help out with what needed to be done. I am also glad that I was able to have a glimpse at my husband’s work day.
So often I think stay at home moms, at least I know I do, focus on our day. I know I tend to focus on all that went wrong with me. I complain about being stuck at home, being too busy, having sick kids, and on and on. I tell my husband all about the kids not doing well in math or how I can’t get them to focus. I also talk about the things that the kids did well or what we did that day, but it is all about me and my day. I don’t think we focus enough on what our husband’s do. They work hard and we should be involved, as much as possible, with what is going on with them and their work. We need to focus less on us and more on them.
What I learned this week is that his job is much tougher than mine.
I was reminded that my husband works very hard. He has a tough job. He goes and goes all day. He can make difficult decisions very quickly. He has to and he does it well. I learned how good he is at management and leadership. I learned how much all his patients like him. I learned how really hard he works, and I enjoyed watching him work.
So, because I don’t tell you often enough, thank you Matthew for all you do for us. Thank you for working so hard and being such a great Dr., husband, and dad.
And Happy Birthday!
