Depending On You

in the generous life

© Ramon Grosso | Dreamstime.comI didn’t get sandwich rolls baked today. 

That doesn’t sound too earth shattering, except that the sandwiches my husband and I eat are at the heart of our diet.*  He’s pretty good-natured and we are working to find variety/substitutes in our meals, so we’ll work around it. 

However, it got me to thinking. 

What are the things we count on from each other that we can’t (or can’t easily) do for ourselves?
Am I being conscientious about taking care of what I need to do for him? 
Do I ask for what I need in a kind and respectful way?

I encourage y’all to ask yourselves these questions about your marriage relationship.

* Garlic Hoagie Rolls – My husband and I have looked at the Subway diet off and on and finally decided that we could do something similar (we have three meals a day (instead of two) and aim for the 1,200-1,500 cal. range). We continue to look for fun meals that we can eat in 300-450 cal. range (looking forward to some nice soups this winter!).  He has lost 37 pounds and I’ve lost 18, yeah!)

Halloween season can be a challenging one for believers.  I recently read a couple of posts from The Happy Home Fairy and thought she handled the subject very well.  Her posts would certainly be a nice place to start when discussing this season with your husband and family.

Congrats on the weight loss and getting healthy. That is super important!

And I might add, you both look great! Keep up the good work, and I’d love to have some of your soup recipes for when it gets cold here…around January!
