  1. Love this Natasha.
    My husband is exceptionally good at keeping his mouth closed and walking away. Drives me absolutely insane! I’m a fighter: I yell and argue and get heated. He doesn’t…which, of course, makes me even angrier. But I will admit…it’s probably a good thing that we bother aren’t fiery like that lol

    And lest you think we’re huge fighters…we’re not….I could probably count on 1 hand {well maybe 2} the times we’ve had arguments in the past 13 years.

      Oh, we’re the opposite. Amos wants to deal with whatever it is– and I just want to walk away for a few hours and come back after I’ve processed it all by myself.

      I think the times that we’ve actually had fights, he’s thanked me for actually engaging. Lol! Not because he likes fights mind you, just because he got to deal with the issue and then be done, instead of waiting for me to process.

      I’m very thankful that we rarely, rarely have issues. 🙂

  2. Love how you are intentionally doting on your husband, Natasha. So refreshing and inspiring!

  3. Ohhh! This was sooo sweet, Natasha! I’m just enjoying these posts to the hilt!
    I have to tell you though, this so reminded me of me and my husband’s “first date”! He did all the talking. I sat there and commented every once in a great while. He was so nervous he was fidgety. There were some garbage bag ties laying around that he somehow got ahold of, and for most of the conversation he was twisting and mangling those ties in one way or another.
    Then he suddenly stopped talking. He looked at his little tie creation, then held it out to me. “It’s a flower! See? For you.”
    I reluctantly took it and looked it over. Inwardly thinking, “It looks more like a little witch doctor.”
    I thanked him. He went back to talking. Within two minutes he stole the “flower” back from me and started messing with it again.
    Then he suddenly stopped talking again, and looked sheepishly at me.
    “Actually… it looks more like a little witch doctor, doesn’t it?” He said.
    I looked back at him, and melted. I knew we were meant for each other.
    Two months later, we were married. 😀

    Courage in communication is something that my hubby is strong in also. He’s helped me grow that courage for myself since we’ve been married. I was never really shy, but I didn’t think anyone was interested in what I had to say. He’s helped me realize that even if someone doesn’t want to hear what you have to say, sometimes they NEED to hear it anyway… in a loving, respectful manner of course… 🙂

      Oh, Jessiqua, what a priceless story! 🙂

      It’s funny, because I’m not exactly shy either, but I definitely lacked confidence. It sounds like we picked some definite winners to marry up with. 🙂
