I wanted to take a minute and note what a wonderful husband I have. We have been working really hard together over the last couple of weeks getting the house cleaned up and doing repairs. He has really shown a dedicated, patient, and thorough work ethic. I am amazed at his character and wonderful heart. He has taught me a lot and inspired me so much by his attitude.
Whenever you are fixing up a house to sell, and doing difficult or tedious projects, it's hard not to be tempted to just do the bare minimum to make it look alright long enough for someone else to buy it. It's been in the back of my mind the whole time that the fruit of our labors will primarily be enjoyed by the next person to live here.
This is the part where my heart swells with pride and appreciation: The other day, David and I were going over our to-do list and schedule, and he said something along the lines of, "I want to make sure I spend enough time on each thing to do a really good job, because I want the person who buys this house to have a really nice place to live. If I'm going to do a job at all, I want to do it well."
*Long pause for his amazingness to sink in*
He was completely meticulous in his efforts, did an excellent job, and I am so so impressed with his attitude, ability, and finished product. You go, David! :)
