Mr. Clean!

Mr. Clean has been doing wonders around my home! And no I'm not talking about the man pictured above ;) My sweet husband has been blessing me time and time again but helping me with cleaning! Some of you who know me well....Mom ;)...know that cleaning isn't my favorite thing. I really have to push hard to motivate myself to clean. I love cleanliness, but just hate the hard work that gets you there. Either way since we've been married I have grown. (For those of you who are thinking "gross I've eaten at her house or used her bathroom" don't worry I do clean those very important places! I just don't like it!)

Recently I've come into the kitchen to see Lew scrubbing away at dishes, or wiping down the counters, sweeping the floor, cleaning the bathroom. He even swiffered last night! Oh how blessed I feel. He often does these things without asking, just to bless me. He doesn't even care too much about things like the bed being made...but knows that I he does them. He's even getting to be better than me. I told him if he keeps that up for long I won't ever want to clean again ;)

Thank you my sweet pea! You are such a blessing to me. You are truly an example of Philippians 2:3-4

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

My brother cleans? unasked? Wow, what a few years of maturity does for a person. I'm very proud of you, Jeffrey. Who would have thought it! Love you both!
