Older people came from the depression era where if you had a job better make damn sure you keep it life was tough back then . Everything wasn't spoon
feed where everyone wins a trophy . I used to be a slacker but the older I got reasoning and ethics and self respect became a bigger part of my life
and having my 2 kids sure helped . Now it seems I devote myself to work to provide for my stay at home wife and two kids and I am ok with that there
is no other way I would want it . Having kids also taught me patience .
Then I have respect for what you do and the pride you take in it. My husband works those hours, because I too, am a stay at home mom. I could not ask
for a better man to provide for me and our family. There is honor in it and more people should take that kind of pride in their jobs. I was always
taught (and I did work for many years, and a time or two since marriage to make ends meet) that you should take the same amount of pride in heading up
a Fortune 500 company that you would in making hamburgers for a living... and it's the truth. Any honest work should be treated as such regardless of
People have started to fail in seeing that, and therein lies the problem. As people have started taking less pride, others started accepting that it
was ok, and in reality it should not be acceptable. It trickles down to everyone.
But much respect to you for doing what you do. It's hard in today's economy to make it work on one paycheck. We have struggled too many times to
count, but it is worth it in the end. I hope your wife does indeed appreciate the opportunity so many other wives do not get or do not even want.
