But Jonna Miller, a stay-at-home mom and blogger has a great piece of advice for anyone who feels angry at their spouse for being gone long hours. “Do his laundry,” she said.

After weeks of her husband coming home late and missing out on dinner and family time, Jonna got to the end of her rope. She says of that moment, “In the back of my mind all I was thinking was ‘Boy, is he going to hear it from me when he gets home!’” When the dryer buzzer went off, the last thing she wanted to do was fold the laundry, but in doing that simple chore, she had her epiphany.Screenshot 2016-04-12 at 4.55.04 PM - Display 2

“Why did my clothes look so vibrant, clean and new? His were dingy, stained and torn. I stopped folding and just stood there, thinking.
