My Husband Rocks Vol. 9






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 fabulous Ashley from Him & Her! Check out her post here:



This week we are talking about the first "I love you."

This is actually a pretty funny story for us!

We had decided to drive to Fredericksburg, VA for a weekend and stay at a hotel, visit his uncle and do some shopping. That first night, we were laying in bed talking, each of us tripping numerous times trying NOT to say "I love you." I had said it was too soon, I was just divorced, I didn't want a boyfriend blah, blah, blah.

Eventually, we started to get sleepy and decided to say goodnight....

Hubby looked at me, started to say it, stopped. Thought about it some, and then said....

"Oh, F it! I LOVE YOU!" So romantic, right??
