I Had A Win

My desk, at the end of the day, is always completely clear. I am a generally clean person. I try to be diligent in maintaining cleanliness in my life.
Since both my wife and I work, it can be challenging to keep our home clean. We are both tired after a long day of work and the last thing that we want to do is clean. Still, work needs to be done.
While my wife was taking her test in March, I stayed in the hotel. My work primarily involved working on the Catholic Husband blog. Since I would be in the room during the day, that meant we wouldn’t have housekeeping work in our room.
Before I sat down to blog, I went through the room and picked everything up. I cleaned up the bathroom, made the bed, and rearranged our stuff. I wanted my wife to have a nice, clean atmosphere for when she got back to our hotel.
This was a win for me. I didn’t have a single thought of blame or begrudging. I just did it because I love her. It took me time to get to this point, but I’m here now. I’m not looking back.
