Wow, now it has been an hour and thirty minutes! Janette calls again; still no answer! If he is cheating what is she going to do? Where is she going to go? Four children together and fourteen years, doesn’t that mean anything? Then her thoughts are interrupted by a car door slamming. She peers out the window to see who it is and sees Henry coming to the door. Quickly, Janette begins thinking of how she will find out what has been keeping Henry late this week.
As Henry comes in the door, Janette walks over to him and gives him a hug, but only to smell his collar. Hmm, I don’t smell any perfume on his neck, she thought as she leaned in a little closer. Henry welcomed her embrace and gave her a kiss after the long hug was over. “Well honey, I’ve missed you too! Is dinner ready, I'm famished?” Henry stated as he walked over to the kitchen. “Looks like it’s just you and I tonight dear, because since you were late I went on ahead and fed the kids so they could finish up their homework.” said Janette as she took her seat. “I know sweetheart and I am truly sorry, but work has been real hectic this past week.” “Well, Henry, did you get any of my messages? I have called several times, not just once and have sent text to your phone over and over again. Is there someone else? Please be honest with me Henry! If there is someone else, I need to know! You know I was talking to Lindsey about all of this and she said it sounded like maybe you are having a fling, seeing as you have been late all week and this just isn’t like you! (Henry tries to talk, but Janette isn’t stopping yet) I can’t handle this Henry! Am I not good enough for you? I have given you children, I clean up after you and I cook your meals!!!” “Janette, stop! What are you talking about? Baby, I love you and I appreciate you very much! You truly complete me and there is no other woman!” Henry begins to chuckle. “What is so funny?” Janette asks. Henry replies, “You sent these texts to me, right?” “Yes!” said Janette. “Well I would have answered them if I thought they were from you but I thought that one of the kids got the phone. I don’t quite understand, “wr r u” and this one is even better, “I nd u cl me rt now.” Honey, I don’t understand this stuff!” Henry said laughing.
Janette waited a minute, looked at the phone, then looked up at Henry. She hesitated only for a moment and then busted out laughing too. “I am so glad I married you, but for future reference this says, “Where are you” and the other says “I need you, call me right now.” I am sorry for getting upset, can you please forgive me for doubting you?” Janette asked as she looked into his eyes with a pout on her face. “Of course baby! Now, can we eat dinner, I’m famished!”
So Henry and Janette ate their dinner and well, that just about sums it up for us housewives who worry and stress about our hubbies without seeking the Lord on the matter first and going to our “friends” for advice!!
