Servant's Heart

I have a raging case of PMS right now, complete with mood swings, exhaustion, and migraine. I held it together enough to make dinner last night, but once we were seated, I just didn't feel like getting back up. Additionally, I was trying to muster up the energy for a music rehearsal that I just didn't feel like going to.

After dinner Steven took my plate into the kitchen for me, and I heard him making some noise in there. When I went in later to put my glass away, I found this:

I know it's not a huge thing, but given my current state, to walk in and find the food put away and dishes rinsed and stacked felt like being handed a million dollars. Having a loving husband is a great thing, but having a loving husband with a servant's heart is even better!

As an aside, he also thrilled me by telling me that he bragged about me to one of his coworkers, who was complaining about the cost of groceries lately. He told me that he was so proud to tell this guy about my shopping strategies for keeping our costs down. It's always nice to know that my work is appreciated!
