My Husband Rocks Vol. 10






No husband is perfect and it doesn’t really matter. What matters is how I set myself up to think about him. If I focus on his failures, his annoyances, or ways in which I’ve felt hurt by him, then I will interact with him as a hurt and frustrated and disappointed wife. That makes for miserable living for me and my husband and those around us. But if I focus on his strengths, his potential, and the ways in which I feel blessed by him, then I will interact with him as a forgiving, blessed, and contented wife. And there’s no greater need a man has than to feel respected by his wife. If he feels like all he does is hurt, disappoint, and frustrate, then the same atmosphere and the same actions will be perpetuated. But if he feels that his wife can be happy and responsive regardless of his shortcomings, he 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."


 
 
 
This week I am joined by the gorgeous Kristina from The Streeters Unlimited! Check out her post here:



This week is about your proposal. Tell me the story of how he/she proposed, or if you are still dating tell me about your dream proposal!


Mike actually did a really good job with his proposal!

It was Valentine's Day and we had made plans to go with his best friend and his girlfriend to dinner. They came over the night before and spent the night because we knew it was going to snow and they didn't want to get snowed in at his house.

That morning, Mike got up first and went out to "clean off the car." The best friend went out with him to do the same thing. A few minutes later, the best friend came back inside and said I needed to go out to the parking lot, someone had hit my car. I was like "who cares, it's cold. I'll see the damage later."

He retorted with "NO, you need to go outside NOW." I was a little curious at this point, so I got dressed and went outside. When I got out there, I noticed that Mike wasn't even near my car, he was over at his car. I was about to be angry because I couldn't see any damage on my car, and thought "What the blank is he dragging me out here in the cold for?"

Well, as I get to the back of his Durango I see a blanket draped over something in the back. I think, "Oh, he's going to give me my present. COOOL!" Well, little did I know...

He pulled off the blanket, and there sat a HUGE stuffed unicorn in my favorite color (purple of course!) and in between it's two front hooves sat a red rose, with my ring on it! I was shocked, and excited!

I'm not exactly sure what he said to me, but it ended with the traditional "will you marry me?" and although he didn't get down on one knee, I immediately said yes! (I mean, it was snowing....)

And then we went back inside and celebrated! It wasn't what I had envisioned, but it was perfect for him, and perfect for the way we are together, so I couldn't have asked for anything more!
