There are some things that are just important to my sanity. Beauty. Order. Creativity. Pretty things growing in the dirt. A bag of yarn and a crochet hook.
The same could be said for my husband. There are things that help him feel balanced and energized … sane (believe me, this is important). ;)
I think sometimes we look at what is important to our spouses and wonder. It might seem a bit silly to us or not really that important. I’m thinkin’ we need to respect those things for our spouse in the same we would like for them to respect our sanity savers.
So this coming week, pay attention to things that your husband voices. Does he need a little alone time, time with his buddies, a hug (or more), time in his workshop, etc. These are important to him. Respect that and encourage him to indulge.
