Significant Other Saturday Sunday #2

NOTE: I must apologize for not posting this yesterday, I was feeling really terrible, and when I got home from work my back was hurting so badly that I just went to bed. I promise to get back to posting on time!! =)

"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. Join Ida @ Eternity Kind of Love, and me - Rachael, as we challenge 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: Tell us 5 things that you love about your significant other!

 1. He - is - FUNNY: My husband always has something funny to say. He has an endless supply of jokes. And man, can he do some GOOD impressions! He is better than anyone I know when it comes to imitating accents!

2. He is sexy: This goes without saying, because I don't think any of us would be with our partners if we didn't find them attractive, but man my husband is a hottie! I am such a sucker for muscles and gotees!

3. He is hardworking: My husband doesn't have an easy job. Now, it's no where near the hardest job out there, but it is physically taxing, and he comes home tired and sore from lifting furniture all day more often than not. But he still takes some time and cleans around the house for me. He's amazing.

4. He is smart: He's been making some very adult decisions all on his own. He's decided to stop drinking alcohol. He always is thinking about how his decisions will affect a certain someone in our life. Which brings me to....

5. He is a WONDERFUL father: He just loves our little girl so much. He may not particularly enjoy some things (who does? have you met anyone who LIKES dirty diapers?? Not me!) but it doesn't even phase him. And he's always thinking about her, and things that he wants to do with her. My heart swells watching him with her. It makes me melt.
