Misty lives in Maine with her hubby and 3 kiddos, an increasingly crunchy family one step at a time. I blog to encourage and share God’s workings in my life! You can find her blogging over at SimplyHelpingHim.
The early morning hours before the kiddos awake is when I find my quiet time with the Lord, as well as when I do my blog linking up. Recently I found myself with a pen and paper, as my hubby was typing up an email for work.
My schedule was off, but I sat there grateful. Grateful that I took the time the night before to type up and schedule my blog post.
I was watching my hubby type, realizing he’s not as quick as I am. I was just growing up as the computer age hit. He was beyond grown.
His patience, determination and concentration all astound me. If I’m slow at something or can’t figure it out. I tend to get frustrated and walk away ~ at least for a time.
Not my hubby, he plugs along, one word, sometimes one letter at a time. I’m in awe of what all I can learn from him.
He excels where I lack. I excel where he lacks. It’s amazing how two becoming one, benefits both!
He accentuates my strengths and pushes me to do better where I am weak!
He encourages me when he sees me trying hard to change something in myself, that he and/or I feel I need to work on.
I do my best to remember to encourage and thank him for the things he does that are not typical for him.
I’m stubborn, strong willed and pretty opinionated, but determination, patience and concentration are not my greatest strengths.
God knew I needed my hubby, I still have so much to learn from him! Ten years down the road, I am still learning and see new things everyday in Him!
What lessons have you learned from your husband/significant other?
A great big thank you to Misty for joining in my Blogiversary and sharing a little something about her life with her husband. I think so many of us can take a lesson from Misty when it comes to the men in our lives. We need to stop taking them for granted and look at all of the ways they love us even when we are the most difficult person to deal with. Because lets face it, we all have our moments. I appreciate and love everything my husband puts up with from me. Go on over to Simply Helping Him and show Misty some Monica’s Mom Musing love!
