  1. Number of husbands pleased: 1
    Number of husbands jealous of that one: scads!

    My dearest, thank you so very much for taking such good care of our house and making it a home. You are such a shining example to our children (and me!) of how someone to whom much is given meets the expectation to steward it and care for it - and all for the glory of Him who entrusted it to us. Thank you for all your hard work today.

  2. I just have to say I love your perspective on this. In a family council last week we talked with our children about the importance of us all working together to keep our home in order so that we can feel the Spirit here. I did mention that it's also a way we show our gratitude to our Heavenly Father who has poured out so many blessings upon us, and that having a messy house shows ingratitude. However, I like the idea of "stewardship," I'm sure I can find good scripture material on that, and I'm going to talk about that in our next family council.
