My Husband Rocks: Vol. 24 with Ida @ Eternity Kind of Love






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 my bestie Ida! To check out her post, click the photo:

 


This week we are talking about what you would you do if YOU could do anything for your anniversary - Would you fly somewhere exotic or would you curl up on the couch at home? Oh and for the record, your hubby doesn't get to choose this is ALL YOURS! (Money is no object, because this is just hypothetical, but I thought it would be fun!)

This coming Wednesday is also Ida and Josh's anniversary, so be sure to stop by her blog, leave her some love, and wish them a happy anniversary!!




Now since this is hypothetical, and because I said if YOU could do anything, I'm going to say that my dream anniversary trip would be to go here:



I want to go to Paris SO. Badly. I want to see the Eiffel Tower. I want to experience a French croissant and coffee on a patio watching young families shop for fresh bread and food at the markets. I want to see the Louvre. I want to walk the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. I want to take the bullet train to the country side and see a real castle. I want to hear people speak French. I want to be able to ask someone the very first sentence I ever learned in French "Ou est le biblioteque?" Where is the library. I want to go to said library and pick out a book in French to look at. And I want to do it all with my husband by my side. I know he wouldn't be as excited about it, but he would do it - for me.

And for that, my husband rocks. =)

 
 
 
 

We want to hear all about the loves of your lives!
