Marriage Tip For The Day...........

The daily wife tip I get each morning was actually passed on from her husbands web site this time. Something really good to think about. I mean would I want to be married to me? Sometimes I guess but other times not so much. ;) Something good to think about in the way we respond to our spouses and the way we serve them and build them up on a daily basis.

Would you want to be married to you?
I found this question in a post on Simple Marriage (Corey's blog is my current painful introspective obsession).
So, would you want to be married to you? How would you feel about being on the receiving end of your peculiarities, your selfishness, your obsessions, your limitations, and the things you won't let go of even though you know you should? Would you feel blessed or cheated if you received from your bride what she receives from you? Do you offer enough love, concern, support, understanding and space? Are you too critical, too distant, or too avoidant? Do you make your needs, desire and wants far bigger than you see her needs, desire and wants?
If you don't like what you see when you answer these questions honestly, it's time to pick one thing and start working on it; then another thing and another.
If you like what you see when you answer these questions, there is a very good chance you are not being completely honest.

What a great TIP! I certainly need that one these days. Sorry I have been an absent blog reader lately. Life is not what it use to be around here but soon we hope for reprieve. Thanks for all the helpful posts!

Thanks for sharing this! It's a really good question and one I need to keep asking myself daily because unfortunately every day is different! Sometimes I think Eric is darn lucky, but sometimes... not so much.

Thanks so much for sharing. I DEFINITELY would not want to be married to me on most days! God bless our dear, forgiving, patient husbands. :-)
