Love Believes the Best
Love believes all things, hopes all things. – 1 Corinthians 13:7
For today’s dare, get two sheets of paper. On the first one, spend a few minutes writing out positive things about your spouse. Then do the same with negative things on the second sheet. Place both sheets in a secret place for another day. There is a different purpose and plan for each. At some point during the remainder of the day, pick a positive attribute from the first list and thank your spouse for having this characteristic.
I pretty easily filled up two sheets of paper on both lists! (Although I did use a smaller notebook, if that matters.) The biggest struggle on this was doing it where he wouldn’t see me do it! (When he’s got the day off, he’s around 24/7!)
I thanked him for working so hard for us. He’s gone up to 6 weeks at a time so that we can live the life that we do. (So I can stay home and homeschool, so we can live fairly comfortably, etc.) He definitely wasn’t expecting to hear that! (And then I’m hoping he doesn’t read this! LOL! Because I know that came out of left field and totally threw him for a loop.)
While completing today’s dare I realized how many great attributes my husband carries. He’s a great dad, a faithful husband, and good friend. I shared with him how much I appreciate him. I’ve been in a relationship where someone has been unfaithful, so having my husband faithful is very important! Because I never want to relive those memories! Today’s dare also made me question “what would he write on his list about me”. Of course not everything on his list would make me proud, but it also challenges me to be a better!
