Part of my job

Husbandsylv has had so many assignments to do. Including a sermon, he had to write over 13, 000 words in the last four weeks. He is so much organised than I ever was while studying… if it was me I would have left them all to the last-minute.

As “Wifey-for-Lifey”, part of my job is to edit his writings. That said, my job was to edit his writings when I held the titles “#1-Girlfriend” and “Fiance-Of-The-Year”. I’m good at what I do, but it’s only ’cause I’ve had good practice. When Dad (BabaK) was studying at PTC, my job as “the-best-daughter-Ever” was to edit his essays. BabaK didn’t use punctuation, or capital letters, or grammar and most of what he wrote was a literal translation from Arabic. That was really unhelpful when trying to understand a rambled essay.
Husbandsiu is a little better in that he uses punctuation and capitals, but sometimes his use of grammar comes in fits and bursts.  

I reckon the two or three years I spent working through BabaK’s stuff taught me patience and perseverence. God, in His providence and cleverness had me prepped for a job I never thought I’d do, and I must say I appreciate it.

I think it’d be awesome, though, if He taught husbandsylv and BabaK how to show appreciation. Hugs and kisses are nice, but flowers and vacuumed floors are nicer.

    Sharing is caring.

    Even when it’s domestic issues. On the Internet.
