Proud Through The ChaosThe past few weeks of my life have been so stressful, fast paced and extremely trying. There are so many changes happening at one time, I've kind of lost my way. Between my husband's promotion and his absence, my new job and the children starting school, my stress level has been through the roof. Not to mention the potlucks, fund raisers and other functions I have to attend, I'm scattered.
I've been doing my best to be his support and the best wife I think he needs. I feel like I should be doing more than I am, but there really isn't enough time to get it all done. I'm trying my best and keeping my balance all at the same time. The other spouses need this or that, and I'm always the one they call for a last minute meal to feed 50, or a shoulder to cry on because their spouse hasn't been home in three days. We are all in the same boat, but I suck it up and do anything I can to be wife my husband will be proud of.
Well, today I got a call from another spouse. She was asking how I am doing it all with a smile on my face? I told her, honestly, I'm struggling just like all the others. She then proceeds to tell me how proud my husband is of me and how he's bragging about how I'm the perfect wife. Don't get me wrong, my husband has told me this numerous times, but I didn't know he was telling other people.
Apparently, that is the reason everyone has been calling me and asking for help. My husband is bragging so much and handing out my number to the other wives who can't handle it. Mind you, most of these wives are SAHMs and have very young children. It makes my heart swell to know that he is proud of me. This is why I do what I do. Knowing he smiles at the other guys and says "my wife can do it all" makes it all worth it.
Being a TiH wife has given me the strength I need during this time. I know if we weren't TiH I would be like the others. I am proud to be His wife and extremely happy I make him proud.
