Supporting Your Husband

A quick reminder:  I am hosting a Lilla Rose blog party through Tuesday, February 28th.  If you are interested in purchasing some of their lovely hairpieces, you can register as a guest here and check out their products.

Sometimes my husband’s job gets insane.  Correction – most of the time my husband’s job is insane!  We always think it is going to get better “soon”, but you just never know what’s going to happen when you are an IT manager. 

With his long hours, sleepless nights, and a 24/7 on-call expectation, I tend to get grumpy sometimes.  I miss him.  I get frustrated that his work seems to encompass our lives.  I feel angry at times.  I think about how his job is affecting him, his health, his sanity, my sanity, our children, our schedules, etc.!

There have been times when I would, inevitably, distance myself from my husband and/or make known to him my concerns and emotions in a not-so-great way.  In the end, I realize this is not helpful for him.

He needs my support,
especially when he is weak and extended past his limits.

He needs my love.

He needs my tender care.

He needs my encouraging words.

He needs me to have a positive attitude.

Yesterday my husband worked from home – a rare thing these days.  He was awakened, just after four hours of sleep, at 3 a.m. in the morning and had problem after problem arise.  I had compassion for him.  I wanted to do something for him (of course, I was praying!).  I prepped his lunch on a tray, trying to make it a bit more special than usual, and included a small note to him, reassuring my love for him.


It was just a small way I tried to let him know that I was still there for him, thinking about him and loving him.

Are you supporting your husband these days?

Our husbands need our support and our love.
