How are you doing on this 30 Days of Thanksgiving for my Marriage Series?

Day 9 we are focusing on being grateful for the big and little ways we support each other in our jobs.

Jobs and careers may not define who our spouse is as a person, or who you are as a spouse, but it certainly is an important part of our lives.  It can get stressful, have great moments to celebrate and sometimes we just have to listen to all of those details we may not understand.  Encouraging and supporting our spouses, regardless of their career path, is vital.

Today I am grateful for the career part of my spouse, not matter what career path they are on.

We live the same lives

Firefighters may not be able to understand the things their wives go through in their careers and jobs. It’s also important for the wives to feel like their careers and dreams matter too.

Meet people who mirror your life by joining one of the 24-7 Commitment Communities, it’s free! The Fire Wife Sisterhood is for women married to or dating a firefighter and the 24-7 Commitment Honor Guard for men who are devoted to their marriages and firefighting.
