The Marriage Challenge Update

After spending all summer loving on my husband and using the guidelines that Courtney set up at Women Living Well, I find myself more supportive of everything my husband believes in.

It is funny because last year, I don't remember being this in love and this caring about his every day to day life. I mean I loved him then, but it is on an even deeper level that I love and respect him now. Come to think of it, I believe that is what has deepened my love for him even more is the respect that has grown for him.

Watching him work in a job for over a year, one that he absolutely hated, but he did it because he loved us--I don't know how to explain it. My respect just grew by leaps and bounds because of that.

I will have to say that I am glad that I did this marriage challenge. It helped me to put things back in perspective of where I needed to be, and where I wanted to be.

I am going to continue these practices as I know there will be times I am going to need a reminder.
