Backyard Play

My husband has been working a lot of hours with his new position. The children have missed seeing him, so I've been letting them stay up late each night. They get to talk with their dad, but don't get much play time. Sunday, after my husband got home from work, he went outside with out 11 year old son and played catch. I caught a glimpse of the two of them in the backyard and remembered one of the reasons I married my husband. He had worked 73 hours last week. I know how exhausted he felt. Instead of taking a nap or watching television, my husband spent time with someone who had missed him and needed some individual attention. God has blessed me and my children with a thoughtful, giving person.
