30 Days of Gratitude – Day Two – My Hubby

Today I am thankful for my hubby. He is a great husband and a great father.

We have an interesting story. We married in 1984, divorced in ’93 and remarried in 2000. So, we were apart for 7 years. We weren’t on great terms when we first divorced (duh) – but after a couple of years we ended up having a good co-parenting relationship and eventually we remarried.

This time around has been great because we both took our experience and used it to be better people and better spouses.

We have both been more aware of our marriage this time around. We are both better about trying to recognize what is important to the other person and making that a priority. We take more time to have fun with each other. We consciously try to put our best foot forward for each other.

This time around we don’t look at marriage as being so much about what makes “me” happy – we look at it more from the point of “what can I do to make my spouse happy” … and when we mess up we offer each other grace and forgiveness.
