“When It Gets Too Heavy For Me, My Man Always Jumps In.”

Everyone’s been there: The everyday tasks start piling up while your energy only drains. Suddenly, the little to-dos aren’t so little anymore, and you’re already running on empty.

Only then, like an angel, that special someone steps in to help carry the load. Blogger Jenn Kish of Sprinkles in My Closet knows the feeling well. Her husband has jumped in time and time again to ease her burdens, just as she has for him. But there’s one time in particular she’ll never forget — the small but powerful gesture that made her fall in love all over again.

Read her beautiful post about how marriage and teamwork go hand in hand below:

I looked up from the dryer and noticed my man in the kitchen. I was switching over the 200th load of the day. I noticed him chopping onions and peppers preparing dinner for the next day. His boots still sit by the hall, fresh from a long week of work. He cuts and dices, I fold and sort. Together, we keep the house moving.  I stared at the back of his head for a while, the laundry still wet in my hands. I thought about how sometimes he cooks and I cut grass. Sometimes he gets up with the kids and I sleep. Sometimes I drive and he rides. Sometimes I work and he rests. I dont think there is a way to evenly divide the work load- I just know when it gets too heavy for me, my man always jumps in.  And that’s all that really matters isn’t it? There’s no reason to keep count or record of chores.  Tonight, he cooks while I fold. And the load in my hands feels a little bit lighter.
