I have had a similar conversation with several women lately and I just don't "get it". In the course of these conversations, it goes like this, "I don't even know when he gets up in the mornings", "I am not getting up, he can fix his own breakfast or stop and buy something", "I don't want to cook supper, so we can just go out to eat, "I don't cook, he can fix something if he is hungry".
I get up every morning and pack my husbands lunch and see him off to work, he doesn't like to eat early so I also pack him a snack for break. I make sure he has clean clothes and everything he needs. Almost every night I try to make sure he has a good hot supper. We do go out or grab something occasionally. When I tell people this, they call me "little Miss Betty Crocker" or "Miss Suzy Homemaker". I tell them, no, I am a wife and mother, and they look at me like I am an alien.
Now, I will tell you I am no where the perfect wife, but my hubby works everyday so I can stay home and homeschool my son and care for our home. When I got married, I knew I wanted to be a wife and mother. I guess my idea of that was just way different than some others.
Now, I know some women work and have before myself and that does make some difference. But even then certain things were my responsibility and certain things were his, still are either way. Yet, I hear some of these women complaining about how their husbands treat them, or they are getting a divorce or on the verge.
I know this is just how I feel and everyone is different, but I love my hubby of almost 25 years and I love to be a blessing to him. As with other areas of my life too, I have learned, when you are a blessing to someone else, blessings come back to you.
Are you a blessing to your husband? What do you think?
