I love what I do, I love being a housewife and taking care of my family and I know that I say that many times on the blog but I really do think it bears repeating, especially when I know that what I'm doing is being appreciated.

My husband turned to me this evening and said "You are like the perfect 1950's Housewife".

At first I looked at him and thought he was trying to insult me or throw a jab or make fun of something, but I guess he realized my expression because he quickly added  "I'm not saying it as a bad thing, I'm saying that I LOVE you so much for that, for everything you do, for the way you take care of us and the way you devote yourself to the home and the family...thank you".

It warmed my heart because I don't do things to get a thank you or to be noticed, I do it because I love it, but it does feel pretty darned good to hear something like that :)
