I haven't posted a My Husband Rocks post in a few weeks. With Christmas and New Years, it seemed to take a back burner. Which is most certainly why my post about Rick is what it is this week.
Rick felt the need to confront me this week about my lack of attention, when it comes to him. And it was important enough to him that he confronted me in the way he knew I would actually hear him ... by an e-mail .. from his office in our house to my computer in the kitchen. (** ouch .. what do you think that says about me and my "devotion" to my computer?)
These are not easy conversations to have with your spouse. I know that because we have had this conversation more than once, especially this time of year. I always let the activities of the last quarter of the year take priority in my life, at the expense of my relationships. I think I always just assume that Rick will understand, because he is in the midst of the craziness and surely he can see how swamped I am! Yeah, he sees how swamped I am. He also sees that for several months in a row, all of those things take direct priority over him.
Honestly, I don't know how to keep that from happening other than to be more mindful of him and more intentional in making him a part of my day.
I want to be the kind of wife that would do anything to try to make my husband happy.
So this week, Rick Rocks ~ Because He Cares Enough About Our Relationship to Confront Me When I Am Neglecting Him.
If he didn't, I'd probably just go on with things and never notice. I'm not proud to admit that. It certainly is something I am wanting to work on this year, especially during the busy times of the year.
Anyone have words of wisdom about things you do to keep this from happening?
