Lest we forget - Grateful Friday

Today is Anzac day - in Australia it is a public holiday.
We pause and remember - the unsung heroes.Today I'm grateful for the Anzacs.

They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
Not the years condemn
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning
We will remember them
Lest we forget

Revive our hearts ...
Day Four:
"...let him labor, working with his hands what is good..." Eph. 4:28

M - has managed our own business for over 13 years.He worked for himself before that too. Having your own business is hard and constant 52 weeks a year, 6 days a week (Sundays we have always had as Church/family day) and 24/7 on call -though we don't as many after hours interruptions now. We even can get away for a few short breaks with staff holding the fort.

I am in awe of M's motivation to get out of bed each day. Some days I didn't work if I felt like a day off... M never had much opportunity to do this and never complained
(well not too much).M has determination, persistence, strength and good organizational skills. He is good with people, a good listener I never shut up , patient especially with me with all people .

It has been hard work for M since I left almost 2 years when S & J were born.M has still kept the business running. I work from home doing a bit of our tax,wages and some administration.

At times the stress of certain things has caused me to yell at him about paperwork not done.I fuel heated arguments between us over things not done to my expectations (paperwork) but I am learning to accept things more... to ease off my obsessiveness and control.

I am so grateful he has been a hard working man
but still has time to help at home.
