A Shout Out To An Amazing And Wonderful Woman

As the author of this blog, I often write about things that impact me or other work at home dog Mom stuff. After rereading some of the older posts, I realized that I don't write much about what happens during the late afternoon hours after Lisa gets home. Or, when I sit at the table and witness moments like THIS.

Today, I'm giving a shout out to incredible wife. The one I share mothering duties with. The one who, regardless of what kind of day she's had, takes a good chunk of time, after arriving home from work, to spend time with the kids. She sits at the table and, one by one, picks up each of our kids for some snuggle time.

Then, she moves to the sofa in the living room or love seat in the office. And, THIS happens. The kids get so excited when she arrives home from work.

Lisa is one of the hardest workers I know and she stops at nothing to provide for our family. She is the head provider and, because of her, we were able to adopt Lobo over a year ago.

I'm always amazed at her perseverance. I know she's tired most days when she arrives home from work, however, after spending time with the kids, she jumps right in and helps with stuff I wasn't able to get done during the day. Laundry. Dishes. Meal prep. Etc.

Sometimes, on the way home, she runs errands or picks up a few things at the grocery store. 

In the evening, she takes over everything so I can grab a nap before conquering my overnight work hours in the home office.

On a more personal front, Lisa knows exactly how to handle the occasional days when the world gets a little too loud for me.

Or when the sleep deprivations has gotten the best of me.

Or when I can't shake the writer's block.


Or when I feel empty and in need of rejuvenation.

Or moments when I have to vent.

Or the times when nothing needs to be said at all.

Or sometimes when she takes over baking biscuits after dinner. This in itself is huge because she hates to bake.

The list goes on.

And on.

For miles.

I am grateful.

Each and every single day.

I give thanks.
