FYI for wives out there: Send your husbands to the woods for a week, pack one or two hot meals and then the ingredients for other meals. Now, grab a book, holiday magazines, a couple of chic flicks and enjoy being at home where it is warm, dry, you have running water and a refrigerator.
By the time you join your hunting hubby (who has not shaved since he left and is smelling a bit like a gym locker), the sparkle is in his eye's and he remembers how life was without you. Now, after he showers and shaves, enjoy the following week of goo-goo eyes and romance (between all of the loads of clothes you are washing of course). Ahhh, the appreciation of a hunter's wife, well, at least this hunter's wife.
Oh, and another thing I appreciate from my hunter? (well, aside of the nasty preparation) - deer meat, yes, a bounty of venison! Sorry Bambi, but you are looking good in my freezer.
Another note of thankfulness, my go-to-blog-friend has helped a sistah out AGAIN!
Yes, Ree has listed me on her post about her book signing in Little Rock (which brought many new blog friends around), then sent me some of her cool PW t-shirts for me to giveaway on my blog, and now she is helping me out with a giveaway for our first Arkansas Women Bloggers meetup in Little Rock!
She has always responded to my requests (and I am sure she gets MANY). I have seen her being berated on others blogs lately. There is enough judgment and hate in this world, if you don't like a blog, just click off of it and find something that is of interest to you.
My first-hand experience is that Ree is an extraordinarily gracious and giving woman and I am thankful for all the kindness she has shown me.
Make a list of all you are grateful for today,
The Park Wife
