Sacrifice and overtime ahead

One thing about being a home schooling dad that I have discovered is that I have to step up to the plate and really give of myself to keep the ball rolling around the house. Well, the ball is going to roll one way or the other but it is up to me to help keep it running smoothly. I have to help with chores instead of doing what I want so my wife can get other chores done and still have sufficent time to school. At times that also means that I need to do some of the schooling.

I have come to understand that as the husband, the head of the house, I am ultimately responsible for the success and failure of the house. I am to love like Christ loved the Church, I am to lay my life down for my wife and my family. I have committed to my wife to do things for her on a daily basis ro keep the house moving forward.

I am also an employee of a public safety agency that is in the process of a major upgrade that is requiring massive amounts of overtime from all of us right now. When my wife and I were discussing that fact she immediately asked what I needed, what could she do to help me? I told her that I would like to sleep until a certain time to make sure that I will get the rest that I need.

It wasn’t until later that I realized that she just took an interest in what I needed without my asking and put her foot forward. Thank you, dearling, Thank you!

Under the Mercy,

Matthew S

Hmmmmm, maybe I should read the Motu Proprio now that it is out now…..
