Day 4 Be intentional with your husband.
We were driving this afternoon and recapping our day and Gregg was going on and on about things he would do different in different situations and then he just stopped and said, you are my sunshine. I just looked at him crazy because it was not a part of the conversation. He realized how crazy that sounded and expanded on that. Now I am not telling you this story for a pat on the back in our marriage but I am telling you this story because I want to share with you that you can have an impact on your husband with just your attitude.
You see, I know that my husband is a negative analytical thinker. He always looks at all the ways something could be better or what was wrong with the situation before he even thinks about what was awesome about something. This wears him out and he doesn’t want to live in that world all the time. I am on the other hand a Glass is half full kinda gal. I always look at the positive on things and then consider the negative.
Don’t get my story wrong. My husband’s analytical personality is not a bad thing. He is amazing at looking at a process or method and tweaking it to be even better. He just has to look at what is wrong before he can see the right in things. I love that about him.
How do you intentionally bless your husband? Is it a small note on his steering wheel as he drives off, a phone call or text during the day, or the house cleaned and ready for his return home at the end of the day. You know your husband better than anyone, figure out what he needs and take some time this week to be intentional with loving on him.
