From Inside of the Box(es)-- Redbox and my Inbox
The purpose of my blog is to provide an account of my life...memories, important details, etc. It is essentially a scrapbook with journaling (unlike my actual scrapbooks which have pages that contain empty spots for journaling to eventually--translate "probably never"-- happen. This post is a little of that and a little bit of promotion too.

AND...I found this in my inbox this morning:
I just thought I would write you a note to tell you how much I love you. I also want to remind you what a wonderful Mother and Wife you are. I know you have days when you reach your wits end. Sorry I can’t take those days away. However, and I know I am not saying anything you don’t already know, but it is those days you must turn over to the Lord. Those are gifts (hard to imagine) that allow us to remain humble and realize we need Jesus’s saving grace. Yes, he saves us each day from ourselves and our tendencies. I know it’s easier to say that than to do it but each day just keep plugging away. God will bless you and the family for those days.
I know talking with the kids they always recognize how much you do for this family. Don’t think I don’t remind them either. Each day you totally give of yourself to serve them and me. You are a shining example to me. You persevere through all the struggles and get up and do it all over again. When I reach obstacles in my day at work I lean on the thoughts of you working hard for our family at home to nurture our children. Yes you have a bad day now and then and its ok to feel that way, but I admire how you get up and do it all over again for the love of our children. I know deep in my heart and you should trust this too, that our children will have fond memories of your Motherhood when they grow up and they will look for wives just like mom. They will never get a lucky as me though because God broke the mold when he created you. You are exactly the one he made for me and I thank the Lord each day he did.
Keep your head up and enjoy the next week with the kids. I will miss you deeply the next couple days. Not many women can do what you do and do it with so much love. I will pray for you while I’m gone. May God bless these next couple days and I am looking forward to the few hours in the suburban on Saturday. Let’s leave early so the kids will sleep and we can talk. Then we can laugh about how the best laid plans turn upside down when the kids stay awake the whole trip and are loud as can be. Then they are tired because we got them up early. On second thought, maybe we shouldn’t leave that early. Anyway, I will look forward to Saturday and spending the weekend together. I hope you have made arrangements to go scrapbooking with Melissa next Friday. You deserve some time off. I love you with all my heart and soul.
Best husband ever? I think so. :)
