Hi Mrs. U--Thank you for sharing this story, I booked marked it and will read it in a little bit.

Regarding your comment on my blog---Yes, I remember that we both started blogging at about the same time--and I would have loved to have met you while I was in Georgia:) My husband will be in Georgia for a few days in August, I am staying behind because of the new baby--but all of Kevin's family is out there, so I am sure one day we may be able to meet (I miss Georgia so much)...:)

Have a wonderful weekend.

I have read this before and LOVE it. And it's so very true. This is what is happening in so many homes today: both spouses work, more money is gained, yet their homes and lives are a mess. Thanks for reminding us of that great story, Mrs. U.
