Why David is my helpmeet

Marriage is great, not because it is peach and perfect all the time (if it is, I think you're an alien.)

But Marriage is great because of when life is kind of hard and your sweet husband makes it so much better. Like a ray of sunshine amidst the grey, dreary, and depressing Utah inversion.

He got up early this morning, (well, he always does this), at 4:30 to get stuff done.  It is his favorite time of day, other than spending time with me ;). Yesterday I was complaining to David (who was ever so patient and listened and sympathized with me) about having no good food in the house and being tired of the peanut butter or ham sandwich for lunch everyday and just wanted simple (and slightly expensive things like crackers. And for having lame-o dinners because I don't have the time or energy to cook.

And so starting at 4:30 in the morning, he did the laundry, went to the store and got crackers and even Lindt Lindor chocolates--you know, the chocolate balls filled with a creamy filling. . Not that we don't have tons of sweets in the house already. Wow.

It completely turned my dad around, because it started out pretty awful. I was tired, achey, grumpy, and stressed. I woke up late, couldn't find my keys, and then my car, ect. But now I have the courage to keep going and face the next couple of weeks.

This is why God has ordained celestial marriage as THE most important thing we can do. We help each other. Lift each other up. And I can't wait until the day where I can focus more of my energies on him and making HIM more happy. He says I'm doing the best I can under the circumstances and doesn't ask for anything more, but I know that I can and will do more once I have graduated.

See, Rachel, God IS mindful of our needs, and lucky me, I have a husband who acts in his name.

Unified: Facing life's challengers TOGETHER

I agree, completely! I am thankful for a husband who says, "Do you want to pray?" first thing in the morning. Dedicated, unselfish, thoughtful, hard-working. It is good to be half of a team, working on the same goals, pleasantly suprising one another with goodness. I am better because of him. Glad you found each other when you are YOUNG! It is nice growing old together!
