So, I’ve been married for 3,608 days which is roughly almost 10 years. I must say the journey to get this far was definitely a difficult one. But, it has taught me to value my husband and his feelings and not just my own. The first couple years of marriage was about teaching each other what the other person needed in order to remain married.
I admit that I let life events and our children to prevent me from being a wife at times. I had to learn that despite being a family my role as a wife is different than that of being a mother. My family as a whole require my love and attention; however, separately my husband requires the same thing.
Being married for this long let me know that it’s the little non-material things that matter most such as the following:
1. Recording out favorite shows so we can watch them together
2. Showering together and debriefing about our day
3. Working out together
4. MAKING THE DECISION ON IMPROVING OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD TOGETHER
5. Our emoji conversations
6. The laughs we share
These are just a few on a list of many that allow us to continue to grow and remain grounded in our marriage. Just like my kids my husband can contribute to my craziness! But, I love them and couldn’t ask for a better family.
