So this is the 100th blog post for A Slightly Better Wife. I haven’t blogged as much as I would’ve liked to, but don’t all bloggers say that?
I have become a better wife in some areas, and that was the goal. I feel like I’ve made improvements, but still have a ways to go. Marriage is a work in progress, no matter how much you love your spouse or how many years you’ve been together you still need to work at showing them how special they are, each and every day.
One thing that has helped me is being held accountable. Just having friends, neighbors and family who don’t sit around and male bash, but instead encourage me, has been a great refreshing help. Early on in our marriage when I was still just a young gal I didn’t have this, but I so wish I did.
Reading my bible has changed me. I’ve read my bible off and on since I first got it as a gift when I was just a teenager. The bible is full of truth, and if you look, you will find just what you need.
And really having such a kind, caring and devoted husband who is a major goof ball has been the biggest blessing in my goal to being a better wife. He is so forgiving, I praise God for him.
I’m not going to be giving away my husband. 😉 BUT I will be giving away: Ann Voskamp’s book “One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are” You can read what I wrote about it last month here, yes right here…click here now.
As far as the friends- Please take a few minutes to really evaluate the people you are spending the most time with. Do you dread answering the phone when they call? How do you feel after you’ve spent time with them? Just be sure you are with people who can lift you up and help you, not hurt you. Also try to be the type of friend that is encouraging to others. After all, love is what makes the world go around 🙂
