Daddy's Coming Home...Hoooray!!!
So I decided to go against my initial reaction, what would be my typical reaction and suck it up. And not JUST suck it up...but really send him off with my blessing. (Because how much fun or freedom is your hubby going to experience on his time away if you send him off resentfully or begrudgingly? really?) I recently read a post about 50 ways to love your husband and one of them was, "ENCOURAGE GUY TIME ENTHUSIASTICALLY". It really struck me....do I do that? Enthusiastically? So I decided to do that.
Instead of asking him to stay...I asked him what groceries he needed and went and bought them. Instead of sulking, I wrote him a little love note telling him how proud I am of him that he initiates and makes time to bond with other Godly men. Instead of telling him how hard it was going to be without him, I etched out rough plans for the weekend so I would be less overwhelmed and let him know that. It was against my nature. It was hard. But I have learned a lot!
