Aloha Friday

I figured it was time I participate in Island Life's Aloha Friday. Her question was "What makes you happiest?" My answer (although I could come up with 50 answers, I'll spare you with just one) is slowly waking up on a weekend morning, cuddling with my husband, and then my children slowly making their ways in to join us (but only after I'm good and awake.) I remember doing this as a child, and I think it's one of those things I always equated with having a family of my own. My other answer is the times my family gets together with my parents and siblings and their families. There's nothing like being with the people who know you the best, the people you love the most in the world.

Now my question to you is this: What is the greatest thing your spouse could do for you? (And you know, you could always mistakenly leave your answer on the computer screen for him to "find.")

I guess my best answer would be - pray for me. Beyond that, I think the greatest thing he does for me is take the kids out of the house for a few hours. It is unbelieveable how much I accomplish and how clear-headed I feel when they return. House is clean, lessons are prepared, and I'm ready to get back to it. I guess that would be a close tie with a foot or head rub. Or you know, back, arm, whatever.

If you feel like answering, all you have to do is leave your response in the comment box. And if you want to get in on more questions, link up at Island Life.

I totally appreciate it when my hubby takes care of the house/kids while I am sick.

When he helps with my kids and household chores.

He has already done it. He allows me to stay home with our kids everyday so I don't have to miss a thing.

Hmmm, that is a tough one. I would say doing something totally out of the blue. Like for example, we met with old friends of mine from years ago who had never met him. At dinner the husband looked at my wedding ring and said "Nice Rock", and my husband looked at him and said "well thats a nice lady" It was just so spontaneous and heartfelt and it made me feel like a million bucks. So if I could get more of those, LOL, that would be great!

I like it when he helps me around the house and the yard.

Is it okay to just steal YOUR answers? :) 'Cause I'd probably agree with BOTH of them. Prayer and a clear head sound quite nice indeed.
