My Husband Rocks Vol. 14






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 sassy and talented Ida from Eternity Kind of Love! Check out her post here:



This week we are talking about anything and everything! It's a free-for-all!

This week, I want to take some time and talk about Mother's Day last weekend. =) If you follow my Instagram you probably saw a bunch of photos of our little family at the Cubs/Nationals game! Hubby took me there with Natalie, for our daughter's first baseball game! Technically, this was her oh.....fourth?.....game, because Mike and I went to a few Cubs/Nationals games right before she was born! I thought it was appropriate and a little traditional that we decided to go while Cameron is still inside growing as well! It was a blast and I know Natalie had a fantastic time, even if she did conk out on me during the middle of the game! Here are some photos from the day:





 



Mike is still insisting on buying me a Mother's Day gift, but I have to wait. And he won't tell me what it is, but I'm sure I will tell you all as soon as I find out!

How was your Mother's Day? Did you do anything special for your mom? Did anyone do anything special for you! Link up and tell me about it! =)
