Each Man is Unique
- My husband is smart, and is interested in how things work. I could've cared less about touring a factory as a single woman, but that's a common practice we have now, and I actually enjoy it. He makes me see things from a different perspective. He designs light fixtures for a living, and now I find myself almost teary-eyed when I encounter a good design on a household item. I am beginning to see God's handiwork in creating creative beings that use their talents well. He makes me appreciate more.
- My husband is elated when he does a good job, and feels terrible when he messes something up. This is something this newly-married girl had to learn. He can fly to the moon when I notice how well he's done something. He also can feel like the worst person on the earth if I tell him he's doing something badly. Marriage is such a sensitive thing, and we each have power to hurt or heal our spouse. That's why noticing the good things should be about 10 to 1 to noticing the bad things. I never realized my husband would be so affected by a job done well or poorly. I have to use to my hippy powers to help him let loose, and convince him it's not such a big deal sometimes.
- My husband is gracious. Why does my husband act like I have no flaws? I have no idea, but it wasn't something I was expecting coming into marriage. Maybe he is particularly humble or hasn't taken his rose-colored glasses off yet, but he hasn't been hard on me like I imagined marriage would bring out. He makes me want to follow his example, and be gracious.
- And, last but not least, he gives me frequent back rubs. Haha, ok, this is a silly one, but it's a great perk of being married to him! I just have to give him a good head rub every now and then.
