There are things that are more important to my husband than others. Things like having clean underwear and a warm meal are high on his priority list. But if you are like me and most women I know, I could go weeks without doing laundry and have plenty to wear. Leftovers are cool with me and in my single years a bowl of cereal was not only a treat but a delicious dinner.
But I know that clean clothes is an important aspect when he is up at 5:00 am and is rushing off to work. By knowing what is important to my husband and setting them as a priority allows me to better serve him in ways that he really needs. Things like the house vacuumed is not such a big deal to him.
Knowing all of this can be so freeing. Instead of stressing and worrying about doing it all, on some days it is okay to just do what is important. He is not going to notice and a happy and not overly stressed wife is much more enjoyable to come home to.
Every husband and relationship is different. I encourage you to think what is most important to your husband and put that higher up on the to do list today. The rest will get done in time but a happy and cleanly clothed husband is well worth it!
