Counsel from a Wise & Loving Husband


So, lately I have been having quit the pity party with myself.  I have been sick on and off for 2 weeks, all the family has been sick, My wonderful friend moved which was a hard change for me, so I have been feeling pretty sorry for myself.  So my poor husband has had to listen to all my woes very patiently might I add.  Well, last night I was entertaining again at my pity party and I was complaining cause one of my friends is having a hard time with some depression and how she isn't really up for much.  He looks at me with his sweet kind face and says, "Maybe SHE needs YOU to be HER friend instead."  Well, that completely slapped me in the face!  How could I be so blind and selfish??  I love how the Lord loves us enough to give us a loving companion to help us along our journey in this life.  Jeremy has always been my best friend.  And these days, I couldn't do what has to been done without his love and support.  I love that he loves me enough to listen to me, and loves me enough to encourage me.  He takes the time to be my {best friend}.

I have to ditto what Melissa said, You always make me feel better after our conversations!! It also makes us grateful for our spouses and the different perspective they can give us on our problems!!
