My Husband Rocks Vol. 12






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 beautiful Jen from On a Rock in the Pacific! Check out her post here:



This week we are talking about what ways your husband supports you in your dreams.

This is a tough one for me, because Mike supports me no matter what. I tend to go through phases with my projects, and he never complains. First it was making bracelets, and he never complained when I was working on one. Then once I got pregnant I got back into this blog full time, and he never complains when I need to take some time and write up a post or two. (like right now, he's sitting beside me playing xbox, just waiting patiently for me to be done) I don't have any real big dreams, except one - becoming a professional photographer along side one of my best friends. I haven't really been able to even get a plan together yet, but I know that when I do, he will be right beside me, cheering me on. Other than that, it's just little things throughout each day that lets me know he listens, he cares, and he will be there for me no matter what!

My husband ROCKS =)
