Love Challenge~Day 24

As stressful as Christmas Eve can be, the last thing you may think about is today's challenge, but you are in luck because today's challenge is something you may not have to work ;-)

I am so excited for this Christmas being that it this the first Christmas AND Christmas Eve that my hubs has been able to spend with his family since the beginning of his Firefighter career. Through out the year my hubs is away from us 24-48 hours at a time and sometimes longer when he is training or at school. This schedule was stressful for me in the beginning and I would often take my frustrations out on him not knowing how much he was stressing over his schedule as well. I would often make the comments that I was a "single wife living the single mother life"

The second time he had to stay away for a long period of time we discovered Google Talk with video, our boys LOVED it they could see daddy and even got a glimpse of where he was staying. Before that he would sent me little videos via text message to show our boys what he was doing. Today he is not gone for long periods that much but when he stays for over time he Skypes us good night ;-)

All of this we have grown use to, it is where we feel that technology has taken a toll off marriages allowing the doors of communication wider than ever before, despite what the statistics might say! I am able to find the blessings in his schedule like; how easy it is for me to have my hubs to come home to a clean house....I have 24hrs, not 8 ;-) and I LOVE to cook more when I cook less ;-)

My hubs and I frequently practice today's challenge, yes I stated WE BOTH do. I have been known to send a few cards to his work to remind him that we are at home appreciating all he does for us and he has been known to send cards home reminding me that what I do doesn't go unnoticed. 

Your hubs doesn't have to travel for today's challenge, even if he is only gone for a few hours or as far away as down the street you can still step up to the challenge. A simple email of appreciation will brighten his day brighter than you can imagine ;-)

If your husband travels for work, send a card ahead of him so he gets it while he's away. Do you know the people he works with while he's away? Ask them to pick up your husband's favorite candy (send the money in advance). Send a "Good morning/Good night" text. He will love that you're thinking if him.

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a k…

I Tweeted in Church


No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
