My Husband Rocks Vol. 16






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 stylish and funky Lena from Lena B, Actually! Check out her post here:



This week we are talking about the day he became a Daddy.



I have wanted to talk about the birth of our daughter for a while because I feel like it was a defining moment in his life, and in our relationship. When we found out we were pregnant, a lot of things changed in him for the better. I could tell that he was going to give his all to being a father. And he has. She is his world, and he is hers. It's amazing to watch them together, and makes my heart grow so much more.

And the best thing is I know that he is going to love this little boy of ours just as much. He is really excited to meet our little Cameron. As am I.


And for that, he ROCKS =)
