Wow, that is all you are asking for?
Big surprise here, this made me cry.  It’s nice to be recognized for the things that I do, even though I hadn’t really thought of it as things I do.  You also have quite a list as well.  Thank you for that.  I would start listing…but my brain kind of feels fried at the moment.  
Thanks for noticing, 
I love you,
Renee

no, tis not.  i ask only that you manage my 11 children while i’m sitting in my quiet office for 10 or more hours per day, then out with your biggest children, and best helpers in the evening, or one of my friends for a movie or a cup of coffee, or out on a long run, for which I possibly spent your grocery money as an entry fee.  then i ask for you to do my laundry, the cooking, the money management, my ironing, the housekeeping, the shopping, and most of the well-done social engagements and maintenance activities, while dealing with my constant and drastic mood changes, temper, discontentment, and general melancholy, not to mention my weird and socially unacceptable religious views and absolute financial stupidity and mismanagement of the money I earn while away from you, and meeting my expectations and needs for marital intimacy in the middle of the night or other odd hours when you should be sleeping because you were up half the night with nauseous kids while nursing a new-born, changing diapers, and caring for your facebook friends’ needs.  That’s all I’m asking for.

If you want to go with Phil and/or others, it’s fine with me.

I’m not sure I’m highly motivated for this.  Too much is too much, but I do want to see this movie.  What do you think?  Wait for the DVD?

  1. Your mother and father constantly sit in amazement at how God has enabled you (no other way) to do all that was described in this intra marriage email exchange. But we love you because you love Jesus, you love people, and you are, well Renee. You bring the light of Christ to us.

    Thanks for teaching us how to be good parents.

  2. BEAUTIFUL! i just had a great conversation with a new dear friend about this sort of exchange! you are both wonderful and many of us are inspired and challenged by God’s precious work in your lives! Keep serving!
