This might just be my favorite t-shirt. I think it’s my husband’s favorite, too.
If we’re to give our husband our best, Mandi says we need to recognize that Marriage is like Thanksgiving Dinner. Such a great analogy!
When I was in high school, our pastor’s wife spoke about it this way: She said she wanted her marriage to be like Thanksgiving dinner. You know how it is, right? By the time you’re done eating all that Thanksgiving dinner has to offer, you can’t even think about other food.
In the same way, we should be filling our husbands up in our relationship so they will be so full they won’t even want to look at a McDonald’s sundae. Enough said.
JessieLeigh honors her husband by taking good care of herself.
It is critical that I take care of myself if I want to be able to meet the needs of others. When I’m out-of-shape, I feel lousy and all I want to do is retreat within myself. Feeling healthy and strong gives me energy and confidence… two things that are true blessings to the man I married. I need to eat healthy- and adequate- food. Despite how difficult it can be, I need to schedule those doctors’ appointments to ensure my health is in good stead. If I’m going to be prepared to take great care of my family, I need to have taken, at the very least, moderately good care of myself. As wives and mothers, this is an area where many of us consistently fail.
Jessica simplifies the obvious for us all. Simply being together is critical to every healthy marriage.
One important thing I’ve realized over time is that simply being together is vital to our marriage, to our friendship, to our sense of intimacy with one another. If we go too long without really talking and connecting with one another, there isn’t the sense of unity that we enjoy so much.
The days go by all too quickly and when I’m busy being chef, chauffeur, nanny, and housekeeper, it’s all too easy to let time with my main squeeze fall by the wayside. Date nights are great, but every day interactions can often count more than a night out on the town.
