This whole wife thing has been really fun, but sometimes I forget the basics. I feel bad because tonight I didn't even think about dinner for David. I ate a sandwich at 5, and David is now heating up his leftovers to eat for a "scrounge it up" dinner. He's not complaining, that's for sure, but I'm still left feeling like I didn't take care of him. I don't like that. To you long-time married people- do you ever feel like you just aren't doing a good job? It's nothing specific, really. I just have this fear of being a bad wife.
I want to be the best wife in the world. Part of being a newlywed is realizing you don't know anything, and that it's going to take a lifetime to learn a little bit of something. I think David and I both would say that we would like to know everything we need to know, but we are both discovering that part of marriage is learning, and learning creates some of the most memorable moments. Dinner may not be on the table tonight, but we're enjoying our time together!
A special note of encouragement to my dating and engaged friends:
I urge you to remain pure on your journey towards your greatest calling. Marriage IS worth the wait! Just because you love someone does not mean you belong to them or they belong to you. The covenant of marriage was designed for that-wait for your vows! May Christ ever be the center of your lives in every area.
