Significant Other Saturday #1

Welcome to the first edition of Significant Other Saturday! I am excited to be teaming up with Ida @ Eternity Kind of Love for these weekly posts/link ups!

"No significant other is perfect and it doesn’t really matter. What matters is how we set ourselves up to think about them. If we focus on their failures, their annoyances, or ways in which we have felt hurt by them, then we will interact with them as a hurt and frustrated and disappointed partner. That makes for miserable living for ourselves and our partner and those around us. But if we focus on their strengths, their potential, and the ways in which we feel blessed by them, then we will interact with them as a forgiving, blessed, and contented partner. And there’s no greater need a partner has than to feel respected by their lover. If they feel like all they do is hurt, disappoint, and frustrate, then the same atmosphere and the same actions will be perpetuated. But if they feel that their partner can be happy and responsive regardless of their own shortcomings, they feels respected and empowered. Then a positive atmosphere is perpetuated and actions, once destructive, can improve in an environment that is rich for cultivation and growth into deepened respect and intimacy."

Significant Other Saturday is a day in which we can all get together and remember why we fell in love, why we continue to love, and why we will always love our partners. Too often we take our relationships for granted and just expect them to be there. We are challenging you to be attentive to your relationship and tell us all about your partner and why they are so special to you!


This weeks topic was simple: Introduce your significant other!

This is my husband, Mike:

I call him Michael, and no one calls him by his real first name which is Anthony. We are the same age. He is a month and a day older than me!

We met in middle school and have known each other for over 10 years now!

He is an xbox fool, and AVID sports fan with an enthusiastic (that's an understatement) opinion on them, a husband, father, friend, and furniture delivery guy! He is my love, my best friend =)


We want to hear all about the loves of your lives!
