To others looking in, our marriage looks wonderful.
And it is.
Wonderful does not mean easy though.
I give no credit to myself for the strong marriage my husband and I have. I truly believe that we have come through 11 years of marriage because we put God first.
From Day One.
God has been teaching me to show respect to my husband. God has been showing my husband how to show me love.
What really makes my husband feel respected is by me complimenting him…thanking him for being a hard-worker, writing him a note saying I appreciate that he works a difficult job to support our family. By showing him respect in this way, he responds to me in love. He tells me I’m beautiful, he hugs me, he tells me I am a good mommy and he sits quietly to listen when I cry.
we I sometimes yell? Sadly yes.
Do we get impatient? Yes
Does this mean we allow ourselves to grow apart? Heck NO!
A friend shared this video on her Facebook Page to celebrate her and her husbands anniversary. It spoke to me, so although it may mean something different for everyone, I wanted to share it with all of you.
What do you do to try to keep your marriage strong?
