Brie Gowen, a busy mother and wife, woke up to find her husband hadn’t come to bed. She was in awe when she realized he had gathered their children in the living room for a sleepover to make sure she had a good night’s sleep.
Brie, who also works as an Intensive Care Unit Nurse, is married to her husband of six years, Benjamin, IJ Review reports. Together they have a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old daughter, including one 12-year-old daughter from Benjamin’s previous marriage and a fourth child on the way.
Brie told IJ Review that she loves being married. When she woke up without him by her side one night and realized what he had done, she felt exceptionally grateful for her husband.
“The side of the bed to my left was empty. In fact it was untouched,” Brie wrote on her blog. “That side of the bed was still tidily made, and that told me two things. One, I really had slept like a rock. And two, my husband had not come to bed at all last night.”
In the living room, Brie found her husband lying on the floor surrounded by their three girls. One of the girls was even spread out across his chest.
“I had slept hard, and good,” Brie continued. “But mostly I had walked into work [later] feeling loved and appreciated.”
Brie noted that she and her husband constantly work to communicate with each other. She often leaves her husband love notes and he compliments her for things she does around the house.
Aside from romance, Brie told IJ Review that faith is the foundation of their relationship. She noted that they constantly pray for one another and keep Jesus a priority.
