“Somebody who betters you. Somebody who inspires and encourages you in love and in life, who pushes you towards dreams and goals you’d otherwise ignore, who selflessly sacrifices their time to help you become a more courageous, well rounded, and happy human being. That’s sacred, you hold on to a love like that.”
This past weekend at our marriage retreat we were asked the question “are you more likely to remember the frustrating and upsetting things your husband does? Or the good things?” I would be lying if I said in that very moment my heart didn’t sink into my stomach. I started to wonder “Does he know all of the things I appreciate about him? Do I tell him thank you when he does things for me? Are my thank you’s even noticed or are they overshadowed by all the times I’ve been frustrated at him for not doing what I want when I want, or how I want?”
I didn’t marry a perfect person, and my stubbornness doesn’t always remind me that neither did he. He isn’t perfect, but he loves me perfectly even in moments when I haven’t deserved it. In the past year he has gone over and beyond in the amount of support he has given me with all of the changes I have made not only in my life, but in our life together. He has made every event that is important to me, important to him. He with such a cheerful and willing heart helps out whenever it’s needed. He is always opening up my mind and creating new ways for us to be more successful together. He is always encouraging me to be better and to do more because he sees potential in me that I don’t always see in myself.
I don’t always make it known, but he is my superhero. Even on days when he drives me a little nutty🙃 - 2 months ago
