|Yummy Chicken Tikka Masala I made|
today. I tripled the recipe and
then double the sauce recipe
on top of that for the rice. I halved
the amount of salt called for.
I love my husband who makes a living for us to even HAVE a house that has a kitchen and the stuff to cook the food with. Without him there would be no electricity to even cook it. Or water to drink or add to recipes. He shows his love by bringing it home. I show my love by making it a home. What makes a home feel homey? Well, the smell of baking/cooking and a kept house. Even if it keeps getting messed up, I keep trying. Sprinkle some children's laughter into that and you got quite a charming place. :)
Some days, by the time I sit here blogging, I'm so tired my creaky fingers hurt to type, My eyelids are drooping and I'm drinking coffee so I can write. Blogging is my hobby and it feels wonderful to write down every memory these last 5 years and events. 75% of which I might have forgotten. Some days I'm folding laundry past midnight. Some days I want to just lay flat on the floor and take a catnap but then if I do, all the kids think it's an invitation to dog pile.
So what would cause a woman to work straight 16 hour days with very little breaks, sometimes only bathroom breaks?
Through all the work there is a deep joy and heart pounding for this family. Thank God He blessed me with this job. Boy, His design was beautiful. I'm one lucky and truly blessed lady.
Head on over to Kerrie's blog titled "Resentment Towards Your Spouse" to read another encouraging post. Sometimes we need to remind ourself that the glass is half full when we feel frustrated. AND take a nap every now and then! LOL
