When my post Let Your Husband Be A Man went viral, I was surprised to hear feedback from just as many men as women about what I had to say. As a result of that post, a powerful follow-up question emerged. It came from multiple men– but also echoed robustly against the walls of my own heart. What about the wives? How do we let our wives be women? How can husbands learn to love their wives well?
After speaking prayerfully with many women, my own husband, and God– today I’m taking a stab at answering this complex question.
I know that days like today make you feel like giving up. But don’t. There’s so much to breathe for, live for, fight for, smile for. Let’s remember all the reasons to keep going. There’s nothing like a shift in perspective to make things better.
Motherhood is so much more than clean-pressed laundry and a home-cooked meal on the table every night. When we stand before God at the end of our lives, I don’t believe He’s going to ask how many organic meals we prepared, themed birthday parties we threw, or even how perfect our parenting was.
It can be so hard to be needed by everyone. The husband wants a back rub, the baby wants to be carried, the dog is whining for her dinner and walk, the cat is weaving between my legs meowing incessantly for some attention. There are literally 100 emails to answer, a stack of bills to pay, dishes in the sink, laundry to fold, and relationships that I need to catch up on. Somedays it’s more than I can handle.
Hi there, friend. I just want you to know that I see you and I’m here with you tonight. Whether the house is quiet and you’re alone with your thoughts, worries, and fears, or you’re giving your new baby a midnight feeding, or you’re tending to a sick child– you’re most likely bearing it alone right about now.
