Today I am welcoming Madison Weaver to the blog. She writes about marriage and she has a new e-book devotional which is designed to help wives grow closer to God and their husbands. I hope you will check it out.
It’s been a crazy day. You’ve been running around like a chicken with your head cut off trying to get things done. You are mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausted. You’ve worked all day long, got the kids where they needed to be, fixed dinner, and somehow managed to clean your entire house. At the end of the day, you fall into bed exhausted and ready to fall asleep.
Then to your surprise, you find out your husband wants to spend some time with you. *Sigh*
We’ve all been there at some point in our married lives. We spend all day focusing our time and energy on other things, such as work, kids, and the like.
Then at the end of the day, our men are patiently waiting for their turn to spend some quality time with us.
I know how hard it can be at times, but it is so necessary that we take time out to be with our husbands and stop giving them the “leftovers” of our time.
Husbands deserve our time too.
Why am I too tired for my husband?
My husband and I are full-time college students. Most of our time is spent studying, writing, or actually going to class. Our days are busy, and usually, by the end of the day, we are both tired. We put all of our effort into our schooling and future careers that sometimes we forget about spending time with each other.
Spouses need each other. They need that time together to just sit and talk about our day.
Both husband and wife have the need to feel loved and important. What are we telling our spouses when we are too tired to spend time with them? That they aren’t as important to us as the other things that fill our time. It is a constant choice that we have to make!
Juggling work, social life, kids, and marriage can be tough and sometimes overwhelming. You have to remember, though, that you made a vow to your husband on your wedding day. You promised to love and cherish him forever until death does you part. Before you had your kids and job, you had your husband. Remember that he will be there after the kids have grown up and you retire. Nurture your marriage and spend quality time together.
Make a plan
As you probably already know, marriage takes work! It is so worth it, though. That is why it is important for us to take action.
- Make a plan to spend quality time with your spouse on a regular basis.
- Have a weekly/monthly date night. Have some quiet time before bed at night, or get up a few minutes early in the morning to have a cup of coffee and eat breakfast together.
- Get creative! Maybe you could take the kids to Grandma’s for a night and go out to dinner, or go even bigger and do a weekend trip to your favorite city.
Spending Time Together is Important
Whatever you do, it doesn’t have to be extravagant or fancy. As long as the two of you are spending time together and connecting, it will benefit your marriage in so many ways!When we stop giving our husbands the “leftovers” of our time and start giving them the best of us,… Click To Tweet
They will begin to feel loved, valued, and appreciated and continue to grow into the best man they can be for their families!
