Pretty and Wonderful

It’s a pretty fantastic gesture to stop whatever’s going on, and thank your mom once in a while. And if you’re a husband, you can do this for your wife as well, since she’s the mother to your children. I mean, come on, let’s think about this for a second. How might they react to you, if you were to let them know how much you love them? And if you were to tell them, that you’re thankful for them being such a blessing to you, when you were growing up?

I’m also a mom, both of young kids, and kids who are already grown, living on their own. So, I know firsthand how much of a blessing it’d be to receive validation such as this! It’s an amazing compliment when your adult kids express themselves in this way. Moms can get down on ourselves sometimes, you know! We actually feel a lot of concern at times, because we wish you could’ve had different experiences.

“The natural state of MOTHERHOOD IS UNSELFISHNESS. When you become a mom, you’re no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.” Jessica Lange

Moms’ sacrifice themselves to be caregivers for their children, who began as tiny seeds put inside them. We have to make quite a bit of changes in our lives, sometimes. And, for those nine to ten months, we wait for our babies to get the opportunity to hold these precious little gifts in our arms. And we make a promise that we’ll protect them from harm.

We mean the promise that we make, too. Because he’ll hath no fury, like a mama protecting her babies! It’s a love like no other. And it’s a feeling we wouldn’t trade for anything, even if we were never to hear any of those sweet sentiments.

The Perfect Husband

There aren’t any perfect husbands in the world, ladies! I hate to be the one to break it to ya. Instead, there are simply men who have quite a few flaws, and make a great deal of mistakes.

This is a good thing, though! Because now we don’t have to feel inferior to them, with all of our imperfections. Another benefit of their being way less than perfect, is that it provides us an opportunity to learn to love them in the ways we never knew were possible.

The definition of a perfect man is a mysterious being, which can only be found in fictional material. And then there’s Jesus. Look at it this way, we get the experience of showing grace under our belts.

Is that so bad? I’m sorry I brought you back to reality. But we women, well frankly, we need to learn about contentment! Learn to be thankful for our husbands great qualities.

So often, we find the things we’d like to change in our husbands, and continue to harp on them to fix it or refer back to it in the middle of an escalating conversation. Yeah, I see you there, wifey. Yet, then we fly off the handle if they’re quick to respond by pointing out something less than positive about us! No, Mr. Perfect doesn’t exist, but neither does the Mrs.

The best of marriages still include both husbands and the wives slipping up from time to time. But the marriage can still be perfect..when you continue forgiving each other for being imperfect! You can still have a wonderful life, without striving for him or anything else to be just right.


A Perfect Day

Each morning, I wake up and have lots of really awesome goals for the day. On a perfect day, I’ll accomplish all of them! The rest of the time, I’ll give myself grace for getting done what I could. FYI: I’ve yet to have a perfect day! Which is perfectly fine.

If you fall in love, then spend years together, only to part ways because of each other’s flaws..the irreparable damage done might very well haunt you forever. Because there’s going to come a time, maybe after another imperfect relationship or two fails, when you realize your expectations might have been completely unrealistic. Rather than continuing the very pointless search, let’s work on the relationships with the husbands we’ve got!

I have a feeling..they’re not so terrible. And God’s still working on them – just like He’s doing with us.
