Worth It

Zach had to work on Christmas again this year.  But he came home at about 8 in the morning and got to stay until about 3, and then he was back for dinner.   When he left I was disappointed- we'd hoped he'd be able to stay all day.  I get this apathetic, overwhelmed feeling sometimes when I try to plan things and he gets called in. But I've always had two thoughts that save me from feeling too sorry for us.  One is that at least he's around. The position of "dad" is filled at our house.  The other is that we're lucky he's the kind of person who is willing to care for others. On Christmas, at 6 every morning, in the middle of many nights.

I've told quite a few of my family that I think he's got some elf in him, because what he accomplishes in the time he is around sometimes baffles me.

I feel so blessed to be married to a man who honors the priesthood he holds, and makes the most of his time.

Don't get me wrong, we both agree that if you can see yourself providing for your family doing ANYthing else- do it.   It is definitely worth it, if you can choose, to take a route where you can live a little better sooner.  

That being said, as bad as it has been, we've been lucky in a lot of ways, and very blessed to have family to support us in any way they could.  

I'm looking forward to beginning our last year here.
