Wife Furious With Husband’s Hectic Work Schedule - Then She Hears Him Talking With Daughter

A farmer's wife named Katie Spence Pugh was tired from a long day at work and an evening spent caring for their kids without the help of her husband, Eugene, who was still working in the fields. Katie felt frustrated and upset and started to blame her husband, but then she had a major realization.

Katie shared her thoughts in a moving Facebook post:

"I snapped this picture the other night at the end of a long day.

I was tired. I was irritated.

I had sent my husband a text telling him that I knew it wouldn't make a difference, but I wanted him to know that I was feeling fed up with how much he works and with all that I have to do every day by myself.

The full-time job, cooking dinner, bathing kids, weekend trips without him, keeping up a home - you name it, I was resenting it. I have to have these little moments once (okay, several times) throughout planting and harvest season.”

She continued to note it was a super busy time of the year for Eugene on the farm, but he had to put in 14 hour days for the sake of his family and their business.

She pointed out that Eugene was not upset about the text and just sat down for a bite to eat. Her post continued:

"He came in, fixed his plate and sat down to eat all alone. He was tired. He was hot. He was exhausted.

Rather than complain, he said he was sorry I was tired and felt that way.

Charlotte joined him and talked his head off and even ate most of his dinner. He didn't complain. He shared, and it hit me. Do I wish that we saw him more than an hour or so a day? Yes. But, the love he has for his craft is something to envy.

Farmers work in a thankless profession. It's always non-GMO this and organic that, and let's not even talk about the stress from Mother Nature.

This is a man who is working to uphold four generations of blood, sweat and tears and showing his children the value of hard work and discipline. So while I felt frustrated, I really should have felt thankful."
