What an insanely beautiful busy camping weekend. After getting home; unpacking, cooking dinner, starting laundry and nursing a stiff hip from sleeping on the ground because my twin size air mattress kept going flat, I was exhausted to say the least!! When we got into bed my husband rolled over and thanked me. I paused, I wanted this weekend to be perfect for him and he noticed my effort. As a woman, that is everything!! That is what we want! Our effrot appreciated, validated and enjoyed! My husband is the best at this. He notices the smallest details and never fails to tell me how he appreciates my efforts. I owe this to our Christ centered marriage lead by my Godly husband. To someone reading this who doesn't have a Christ filled God centered marriage, it is difficult to understand and you know what, I get it! I had a few marriages that weren't. Not because I wasn't interested but because my partner wasn't. So, to you I say, if the Lord is speaking through you listen to him. Work on yourself and the rest will come in time. To my husband. I love you and our marriage. It isn't perfect but it surely is ours. Go out there and start validating your spouses efforts and watch the way your marriage starts to change and flow! Rome wasn't built in a day but I assure you if this blended marriage of 5 kids and 2 imperfect people can do it, you can to!
