My Husband Rocks Vol. 8






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 lovely Lacey from Little Miss Nerd Girl! Check out her post here:




This week we are talking about Anniversaries. My favorite anniversary is actually from 2011, right before Natalie was born.


 We bought tickets for a few of the games where the Cubs were playing the Nationals. Even though I had gone into "pre-term labor" that previous weekend, we got it stopped and they sent me home and told me to take it easy. Well, that didn't happen because we weren't going to lose out on all the money we spent to go to the games!


 
 

We had a blast! We sat behind the pitchers box for a game (maybe two I can't remember actually) and then sat along the third base line for the last game. It was really a lot of fun, and it was our last chance to spend some really good time together just the two of us! (even though Natalie was tagging along inside my belly)


I actually hope to take a little bit of time just the two of us and go away for a weekend before Cameron gets here. I think we need it as a couple. Just a few relaxing days at a hotel room without the worry of bathtime, bedtime, meals, etc. etc. etc. before we jump back into what I like to call...


ZOMBIE MODE.

Here's hoping we get that time for us! We're going to need it!
 
 

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