I was coming home from the grocery store tonight, (while my husband was helping HipChick with her homework, and straightening up the house I might add) and I turned on the local FM pop talk show. The host entitled the segment, “Training a Husband.” She was actually saying that husbands are so dense that you have to use dog training techniques to get them to do what you want. Then, a series of callers proceeded to share their husbands’ idiotic missteps and misunderstandings, and how they can’t even follow simple instructions.
I actually wanted to cry for those men, who were being completely disrespected by their wives. I wanted to call up and say, “Do you know how wonderful my husband is? Yes, he may have made some mistakes in his lifetime, but let’s focus on the good they do! Have I never had a complete ‘space cadet’ moment or two…or five? “
Anyway, if you agree with me, leave a comment saying what you love and respect about your husband.
I respect the fact that my husband loves God with all his heart, and seeks to follow Jesus in all he does. I have total confidence in Judd for the spiritual direction of our family.

Peggy at Meet Me In The Garden has written a great post on this subject as well. It seems like she has a lot of wisdom to share!
