The Beautitudes for Wives

I didn’t have time to read this yesterday, but I’m glad I left it open and managed to take the time today. Good words, ones I needed to hear.

It is tough after a long day with a growth-spurt-constantly nursing baby, homeschool and household chores, mommy-can-you-do-this, and mommy-can-you-do-that, and not one moment to breathe, to remember how important my marriage is. Many days, when the kids are finally in bed, I just want to tune the whole world out. Bill wants to talk, and I want to beg leave to vegetate: please, honey, leave me alone! But it’s not fair to him, and not fair to myself either. Burying my nose in a book or staring blankly at the TV or computer screen might be what I think I want, but it’s not want I truly want.

Thank you, Elizabeth, for the reminder.

  1. Thank you for the reminder too. I’m sorry Mary is nursing so much, but on the other hand think it’s awesome! šŸ™‚
