MHR Friday

McStudly is amazing. He knows me better than anyone else, and even better than I do, at times (which is kind've scary to think about, but kind've a relief, at the same time).
So without going into detail, there was a situation over the past few weeks that reflected poorly on myself and McStudly, though neither one of us had done anything to be part of it. I know it doesn't really make sense, but it doesn't matter. All you need to know is that McStudly handled it amazingly. He does what he can to make me feel better about it. He's stepping up - as a man, and as a husband - to deal with it.
It's not always easy for us to realize the position a husband holds, as wives. We just see the cups he leaves laying around or the dirty socks all over the bedroom. We hear him asking what's for dinner as he sits there playing his video games, or we hear him asking over and over and over again for sex, like it's going out of style... but we don't see the rest of it.
At least I know I don't. We don't see or understand their need to protect us. Their need to keep us safe. Their need to provide for us. We don't understand their justifications for why they do things the way they do, or appreciate the comfort that just their presence can bring, until they're not there one night and we can hardly sleep because of every little noise we hear.
And yeah, sure, they may not see or understand all of the ins and outs about us, either, but that isn't the point. The point is that we take them for granted. We all do. Then a situation occurs where it's put to the test, and it all starts to make sense.
My Husband Rocks because he knows that even though I may not understand all o this about him, I still need it. I still need him to be my rock and my protector. I still need him to provide for me and keep me safe.
We live in a crazy world full of crazy people. And for those of us that are married, we're lucky enough to never have to face it alone... and that's why My Husband Rocks. Because I'll never have to face any of this alone, anymore. I'll always have him to protect me and even just be there for me.
I love you, baby.

It is great to have them around...protecting and caring for us. It's always easier to take someone for granted rather than to take the time to thank them.

I'm teary eyed from that one.

My soon-to-be-husband rocks too.

Lets start a club!

Love your post. Marriage is such a huge adjustment at first. Glad to see you're already figuring out so much about it, though. Truly, marriage ROCKS! And it just keeps getting better and better!

I think the most important thing, and ironically the hardest, part of marriage is to be able to see where the other person is coming from. Or what crap they are going thru.

Realizing that is half the battle!
