I’d like to think that I make my husband a priority, but when I really think about it, I realize I do put a lot of things before him. I feel more disconnected from him the more I push him down my priority list. I don’t think it’s something I do intentionally, but it does happen.
Life is busy! We have a three year old and another little boy on the way, we have our jobs, family, friends, projects, to-do lists, errands, bills, workouts etc., and it’s easy to get so caught up in these things that we lose sight of what is truly important. We try to seek balance by clearing our plate from time to time, but sometimes that’s not easy. I think it’s incredibly important to prioritize our husbands. I know how great it feels when he makes me a priority, so it’s only fair to do the same for him.
I’ve been really thinking about what it means to be a kind wife lately, and I’ve come up with a few recommendations to do just that. I challenge you to be kind to your husband.
