So, I totally spaced on writing up about starting on week #2 but I definitely started it! If there is anything that I have no trouble focusing on, it is my marriage. I love being married and I love TJ more than anything in the world. I am always striving to better our relationship and making sure I am treating him the way I should be.
Anyway, here is what the goals for week two have been:
~ Respect him.
~ Offer to help him.
~ Know his love language.
~ Point out his strengths. (Be specific.)
~ Be his sexy wife.
I don’t want to go into as much detail about each of these points (especially the last one lol). These ones are things that you are going to have to think about the specifics for your husband. I feel like some of these are private things between me and TJ, kind of like our little secret. I know the ways to respect him and to love him in his love language, but I don’t want to share that with the internets. So, take a look at this list and think about your husband and how to best show him this. I have been working diligently on it this week and can’t wait to share about the next set of points to focus on here in a couple days.
On a side note, we had snow the last day or so. In May! What?! Why?! Then by Sunday it will be back up to 86 degrees. I’m telling you, Denver is crazy!
On another side note, I get to see Needtobreathe on Wednesday! I haven’t seen them since college around the time TJ and I started dating. That is a fairly long time! Considering before that, I was seeing them at least once a year. Lol.
Well, I’m off!
Alright guys, April was not a great blogging month. The song challenge was not my favorite, I’ll admit. Which is surprising because honestly I thought it would be one of my total favorites. But I just wanted to post about what was going on in my life and what I had been doing fun lately. But anyway, May is going to be better. The challenge this month is 30 Days to a Better Wife ! I am super excited about this one! I love focusing on my marriage. I love focusing on loving TJ! It is one of my favorite things to do! This challenge is also great because it is not a day by day thing, it is a week by week thing. You take a few things to focus on each week and then you work towards those. It is quite lovely. I am excited to really work on all of this
Check out the link and follow along. Maybe take some of the topics and implement them in your marriage too.
Week One: Be Interested in What He Likes To Do
~ Watch nerdy shows or paddle videos with him. The original post said watch sports with him. TJ isn’t really in to sports. White watering kayaking videos on YouTube is his version of sports. I absolutely love him for it but I had to adjust my focus for this point.
~ Ask him about his day/work. Thank goodness for him working full-time at a different job than I do this summer. I can actually ask him about his day without already knowing and being there for all of it.
~ Give him time to unwind. This one is hard for me. He works really hard at his other job. Mine is not nearly as physically exhausting so on my days off or if I am off earlier in the day I want to go outside and play. I want to ride my bike or go for a run or go for a hike. He on the other hand has been outside all day with his other job and just wants to relax. So, I need to work on not pushing him to get up and go when he has already been doing that all day.
Those are the things to focus on this week. I hope that through this month he sees just how much I really love him!
