Husband life. One of my favorite things (thus the name and website), but oy vey, despite it being my favorite thing about my life, it still kicks my butt on the regular. Maybe it’s because of the trust - or despite the trust - my wife tends to be the one that gets both the best and worst versions of me... sometimes within the same day.
And I know it’s not limited to a “me” thing.
I follow along with and glean from the marriages of those around me. For better and worse.
I strive for the successes seen in others couple’s shining moments, and pump the breaks as I feel like I’m approaching the same mistakes I see others make.
Just today as I’m spending the day of this vacation week seeking the deepest part of my attention to detail in feeding my wife’s love of a clean house through acts of service, here on Insta I gain energy by reading @ashleegadd ‘s latest post, husbandry FTW!
But, I’m also reminded of my friend’s woes as expressed through a random Instagram vulnerability confession.
Marriage is great because by default it means that you have someone else to do life with, so great, and my favorite part, she’s my best friend.
But, sometimes I’m a jerk. Sometimes I say super rude words. Sometimes I am lazy. Other times I don’t communicate well, and all of that adds to full plate of a woman whose brain can’t turn off until all of the checklists are completed.
So, today is a day of acknowledgement and moving forward.
I’m here for the long game and I’ll keep learning and sharing.
Today it’s through vulnerability and truth, but also through friends and by putting really good examples in my ear as I check to-dos off of my checklist. 🙂
How can I be praying for your relationship?
Maybe you don’t want to share publicly or maybe your down with that.
Feel free to message me. I truly care to know.
I’ll reply as long as it doesn’t interfere with family time. ❤️
Also, who do you follow or look up to in the relationship category? Please share!
Also this is a post that can be shared. My hope and dream is that by speaking the vulnerable stuff in life that most people bury, that it will possibly bring hope and then healing to those around me.
Much love my friends!
