My husband is amazing. In many ways we are the same, but in so many other ways we are completely opposite. We compliment each other pretty well. Sharing a life with another human isn’t complete bliss. There’s highs and lows when it comes to marriage. There’s friction, laughter, goofiness, inside jokes, stress, tension, devotion and love. Marriage is great… but marriage is work.
After we lost our baby, my husband really didn’t know how to help me. He didn’t want to say or do the wrong thing, so he often times stayed silent. This made the tension in our marriage grow. I was angry because I took his silence as insensitivity and him being unattached, when in reality he just didn’t know what to do. Eventually after many meltdowns, fights and shouting matches we were able to make peace. I was able to tell him what I needed and he was able to offer help and comfort.
Around Mother’s Day my husband said something so incredibly thoughtful. I don’t even think he realizes how his words impacted me. He knew Mother’s Day was going to be a very tough day. He comforted me in many ways that day, but one thing he said that I absolutely adored was “Happy Mother’s Day. And you’re still a Mother. You are a good mother because you will always remember our baby. She’s in Heaven and I guess we needed her to watch over us.”
I love Charles so much. These words that he said to me have stuck with me and given me strength. He’s an amazing husband and a beautiful Angel Daddy. ❤️
