How Did It Go?


I just KNOW that you are all dying to find out how dinner with the Boss went on Monday. So, here's the scoop...

With the help of my brood, I was able to get the house into good shape. We were BUSY, though! Collin took care of the porch, put chairs away for the winter, emptied garbage cans, and did various tasks that I asked of him. Abigail scrubbed baseboards, and floors, went through old magazines, and organized. Autumn scrubbed bathrooms, and dusted the living room. I tore the laundry and dining rooms apart from floor to ceilings. I scrubbed, dusted, and swept. I also made homemade spaghetti sauce with meatballs, and Coffee Creme Brulee. I showered, talked to my mom on the phone, and was dressed with 20 minutes to spare. Whew!

Dinner was a huge success, but dessert was even bigger. Verne's boss introduced him to Creme Brulee several years ago during a business dinner. Verne raved about it, and I was determined to be able to make it for him. That very year, I surprised him with this special dessert for his birthday. He requested that I make it for Monday evening.

It touched my heart when Verne's boss acknowledged that he was impressed that my husband had expressed his like for this dessert, and that I had set out to be able to make it for him. What do your actions say about how you feel for your family?

An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good, and not harm,
all the days of her life.
Proverbs 31: 10-12

I'm glad your dinner went so well! Isn't it just wonderful to have helpful children? Yours sound like they truly did a great job.

I try to keep the Proverbs 31 woman in mind each day - I have plaques and verses scattered throughout my home to remind me of my responsibilities and priorities. You seem to be doing an incredible job.
