Having Someone to Lean On

My Girls

I am a blessed woman!

My normal day, these days, has my husband taking care of all the things I can’t do with my broken wrist. (Believe me, I’ve discovered quite a few things need two functional hands.) Many times I’ve wondered how difficult it would be if I lived alone. It makes sticking together through the rough times in our marriage so worth it now.

I’m more than thankful for my husband, but what was I to do when he needed to travel out of town for a night? I gathered up my three daughters for a girls’ retreat. We had done this a few years back and had so much fun we’ve wanted to do it again. My needing help provided the perfect excuse. We had a grand time, and my two pups were in doggie heaven with all the added attention. (As a mother of five, I can’t fail to mention I have two sons, whom I love just as much.)

Though I missed my normal blogging time, I didn’t want to miss an opportunity to give thanks for my family, and to encourage you not to give up if things have gone a little sour on the home front. Are there things you can do to restore a broken relationship? Having someone to lean on is priceless.

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.

    I love you beyond words, although at times I may seem grumpy, it’s not with a heavy heart. I’m very blessed to have you at my side and I couldn’t agree more about our children.
    Love Gene
