A good friend of mine, who is also a blogger and not sure she wants her blog listed, so Ill wait to list it in this post, was telling me today about her sister getting separated from her DH. Her sister sent out an email to all of the family telling about the separation and explaining that it was her fault because she didn’t spend enough quality DH time. Here is a portion of that letter she wrote out to everyone…(i have permission to print)
What brings you home every day? Your love for your family? So why do we treat our husband with such disdain and disgust. Why do we choose to talk down to them as if they are toddlers. Why can we not see their honest love and dedication to us and our family. Why is it never enough. We – I was never satisfied. I forgot who I was talking to. I forgot I was talking to the man I have been crazy about. The man that made time stop. The man that I wanted to make babies with…and did. The man that took care of me and guided me and fended for our children. The man that would walk through fire for me. I forgot who I was talking to. Now he’s not there. Now I am alone. I am ashamed.
Sisters, this is the awareness I need to give you. LOVE YOUR MAN THE WAY YOU PROMISED YOU WOULD. He IS hardworking. He IS supportive. He IS good at a lot of things. TELL HIM and SHOW HIM! Hug him. Compliment him. Let him have alone time. Thank him for his dedication. Listen to him without interrupting. This is HIS LIFE TOO! This is HIS MARRIAGE TOO!
What do you think is more important in a family. Your marriage, or your kids? Is there a seperation in the two? Can you be a good wife AND a good mommy? And if it came down to it…who is more important to you. Really. Be honest. Is it your DH or your kids and why.
