She is really awesome and I'm so lucky to have her.
This thread wasn't inspired by our relationship though.... just something that she said last night on the phone with her mom, that I over heard and
was thinking about today.
My wife is a hard worker.
Recently she's been very stressed out with work and has been bringing that stress home. I try to help her deal with it, but my advice and words of
encouragement can only do so much.
It seems like she's the only one who cares if the work gets done and the only one who takes pride in her work and tries to do a good job each and
She works through lunches, works overtime at night and most recently said that she might go in this Saturday just to get some stuff done.
On the weekends and evenings that she isn't at work, she still checks email from home and tries to help out. I've seen her out of the office on a
sick day, check email and get on the phone, just so something gets done.
This job has brought on so much stress, sadness, anger, tears, you name it. She's tough though, she's handled it well.
Why don't the others care? No one else stays late or works through lunches. They push the work off on others and have the "it's not my job" or "I
don't care" attitude.
My wife isn't like that. She gets paid to do a job and she does it and does it well.
I wish that she didn't have to work at all. I really do. I'm old fashioned that way. However in this day and age, it's hard to live on one income,
heck we do well to try to make it on two incomes.
Well, thats is, more or less a rant... but I just wanted everyone to know what a hard worker my wife is and that I'm very proud of her.
I love you honey, keep up the good work.
Some day, I'll get you away from that job, just hang in there.
