I am always looking for things for my husband. He never “loses” anything, just “misplaces” the item. I tease him that I am going to buy him a bright pink wallet so it will be easier to find than his black wallet he hides so well.
That’s okay, as he reminds me, everyone has to have one flaw otherwise they would be perfect! He is, in fact, a wonderful, caring husband and that is why I keep looking for other things too. Such as ways to help him each day and show him I love him. I look for ways to respect him and encourage him. I find time to hang out, just the two of us.
Sometimes my husband will try to “help” me. For some reason that doesn’t turn out as well as when I help him. In our family it works far better for him to be the one steering the ship while I keep things running smoothly.
There are several things I would never want my husband to lose. Like his self-respect, his integrity, and the love of me and our children for him. I can also help in these areas by telling him how great he is; giving him advice (when he asks!) about a relationship problem that might arise at work; and always speaking well of him to our kids.
When I find ways to do these things it keeps our relationship strong and with God’s grace we’ll continue to grow our marriage every year. (Happy 17th anniversary Honey!)
