My Husband Rocks: Vol. 20 with Kristina @ The Streeters Ultd






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 super sweet Kristina! This is the last time she will be hosting with me so be sure to drop by her blog, leave her a comment and convince her to stay!! To check out her post, click the photo:

 


This week we are doing another free for all because I am writing this post in advance! You are probably aware that currently my family and I are in New Jersey at the Prudential Center, home of the Devils, for the NHL draft! I assure you that I am having a fantastic time, and I have to say that My Husband Rocks for entering this contest and scoring us this amazing experience and turning this into a little mini vacay/ last hurrah with Natalie as an only child before Cameron arrives on Tuesday!

So, since I don't really have anything other than that to say right now, I'm just going to flood you with pictures of recent days with our only child, while she is still our only child!

Because My Husband Rocks for giving me both of these wonderful children, and I can't wait to meet Cameron, see his face, try to figure out what he looks like, see if he was also blessed with his father's eyes, and to hear what he sounds like when he cries and smell his skin and hold his soft baby squishiness! And for Natalie, who is just astounding us every day with her amazing new quirks, words, actions, and her ever growing personality! She is so much FUN right now!
