I hear his truck as it comes rumbling down the road.
My heart speeds up, I get a tingling sensation in my belly.
The heat spreads and the next thing I know…I sigh and a slow smile comes across my lips, because he is almost home.
I know that I now have less than five minutes to straighten up the living room and take a peek or two in the mirror.
So, do I look okay?!
Do I have time to run a brush through my hair? Yes…quickly.
Should I brush my teeth again? [Breath check]…all good.
Are the kids behaving? Check…
I am going to beat them out the door today…
I tiptoe to the front door and act like I am meandering downstairs.
I crack open the front door and make quick work of the stairs and meet him at the driveway, beaming like I did when we dated.
I am so happy he is home…too many days (and nights) without his companionship, hugs, kisses, heart…
My wonderful, loving, providing husband is home.
I smile and dance around like a little kid that needs to potty, antsy, foot to foot…waiting for him to open the truck door.
He already sees me and grins all over his handsome face (it’s working!)…he open the truck door and hops out and I fling myself in his arms.
Am I acting silly? You bet…Does he love it when I act like this and meet him when he returns from a long trip…You bet.
Is it totally worth my time? Absolutely!
Did I get all of the laundry done…no. Will I get to it? Sure will…later.
Did I take time to vacuum…nope, not today. Will I do it soon…yes.
Is housework important…absolutely. Will it show my husband that I care, sure…but so does my one on one attention.
I need to take time to tell him, show him, remind him why he liked me all those years ago…he needs it and my oh my, so do I.
I am so very glad that God chose me to be able to welcome home this man!
Proverbs 31:11-12 says, “The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and and not evil all the days of her life.”
Be blessed today,
