Dear Weary Mom – Husband

DSCN1559

I’m so glad you stopped by.  Today’s my husbands birthday; I’m writing this post in honor of His special day.  I will be linking up with Hope For Weary Moms.  Each day this month I will be posting a floral photo and a scripture.  I hope you will stop back by. 

Dear Weary Mom,

Motherhood, is not what you would call a sit down job; it’s more like an up and down, up and down job.  You are on call 24/7.  You give up a lot to meet the needs of your family: sleep, money, time, etc.  It can be both physically and emotionally exhausting.

With all the demands that are vying for our attention as moms it’s easy to let our relationship with our husbands slide.  We reason that they are grown men and don’t need us as much as our children, but we must not forget that before there was three or (you fill in the number), there were two.  Although, it may not feel like it now, there will come a time when it will be just the two of you once again, therefore, you must not let your relationship with your spouse get shoved somewhere on the back burner.  Therefore, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to the wife, and they shall become one flesh.  Genesis 2:24

On those rare occasions when we are given a few hours of reprieve it’s so easy to want to do something that is solely for us: take a nap, lose ourselves in a good book, or go shopping without any rugrats hanging on our legs, but perhaps, the best use of our time would be to spend it with our mate.  Just as we need to love and nurture our children, we need to do the same for our spouses.

This does not have to involve a lot of money.  Take a bike ride or go for a cup of coffee.  A few weeks again my husband and I went for a hike at a state park and stopped for ice cream on the way home.  Last weekend we did something we have never done in almost twenty years of marriage, we took in some garage sales.

It doesn’t have to be grand or expensive, the point is to just spend time together without your little monkeys, therefore, you won’t forget why in fell in love in the first place.

Our husbands do  a great many things for us and our children, we always want them to know how much we appreciate them.  My husband’s a worker bee.  He goes to work all week to provide for his family and when he comes home he helps out with the housework, yard work, and even the homeschooling.  He’s a great father who plays with his children, trains, guides, and teaches them, and prays for them.  I’m thrilled the Lord has blessed me with such a wonderful husband and I don’t want to take him for granted.

Sweet mama, I hope you will find time this week to spend some one on one time with your husband.

  1. Hi! I just found your blog and thought this was a great post. What a blessing (or not so much) we can be to our husbands, and how much they NEED our love, support, and time. I am learning to balance taking care of our little one with making sure my husband gets the affection and time that he deserves and needs. Thanks for the reminder! 🙂 Would love to have you visit me at messyfaceshappyfamilies.blogspot.com!

    • Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I just finished reading your post. What a precious, heartfelt post. When we first come home with our little ones it can be a glorious and taxing time. Our hormones combined with lack of sleep can play havoc with our emotions. Give yourself some grace–loved this comment. Keep sharing, beautiful words. Blessings, Kasey
