The real MVP. I know... I’m growing a human inside me, shouldn’t I be the MVP? Probably. But I’ll give him the title a bit longer 😉 haha Seriously, this man has been remarkable during my first trimester. I have been nauseous, sick, completely exhausted every waking moments these first weeks. Im away for work 10 hours each day and come home to only sit on the couch and remain there for the rest of the evening. Making food makes me nauseous, I’m too tired when I get home to clean/do dishes, etc. The homemaker within me HATES that I can’t do the things I love to my full capacity right now. I love caring for my home and my husband but this first trimester has been rough and has kept me from doing things the way I wish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This sweet husband of mine, hasn’t complained one bit over the meals he has had to make, the many take out meals, doing the dishes, helping me clean up, getting me things when I ask, staying home all day long and doing nothing most Saturdays, understanding when I need to step back and just rest for the evening. He loves with a sacrificial love. He puts aside his wants and desires to care for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is within my nature to be controlling. Blah. Something I don’t like about myself. I constantly feel the need to be in control. But being pregnant, I’ve learned I am no longer in control. My body is completely out of my control. And because of that, I am not able to control my life or household the way I normally do so. Relinquishing control has never been easy. I have had to relinquish control to the Lord and my husband more than I ever have and what beautiful lesson it has been. Giving the Lord control over my body, my child, my future. Giving Chris control of our home and means of provision. What a gift to be sacrificially loved. What an honor to call you mine @grnttdarnit Thank you for all you’re doing for our family right now. It is not unseen and it is not taken for granted.
