Am I Failing At This? The Diary Of A Married Woman.

Today marks our 2 years wedding Anniversary. This morning, as he always does, my husband woke me up with a kiss and a hug. We congratulated each other for the 2 year mark and he made a funny joke about how the past two years has been. We both laughed about it, and made plans for the day. All day, even right now as I write this, I can’t help but ask myself this simple question:

Am I failing at this? If I am to rate myself right now on a scale of 1 – 10 (1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest), what would my rating be?

You see, when I was younger, I had all these dreams and fantasies about how I want my marriage to be. I always told myself that I would be a Super wife who takes care of her man all the time: Cooking and making sure the fridge is loaded with all kinds of food, salad, and fruits; Making love whenever, wherever, and however he likes itΒ πŸ˜‰; Keeping the house spotless; Spending time with him always; Being gentle, caring, loving, and soft spoken; Never angry or talking back at him; Doing the laundry; and keeping everything in the house running smoothly and perfectly. Oh Boy! I got it all planned out. I was so ready to be married. Or so I thought…

Then I met my husband. Watch This VideoΒ Β on How we met. So we met…we dated…and we got married.

And now we have a little princess. She is indeed a source of Joy and gladness to our hearts. We are so grateful to have her in our lives.❀

Now comes the main question: Have I been all that I thought I could be? Have I been doing all I said I would do perfectly? Well, to be honest, No I haven’t. Maybe my husband would have a different answer for you. God bless his sweet and kind heart. I don’t want to ever live without him. My only prayer is that God helps me to give as much love, time, and attention to him as he gives to me. Loving someone is one thing, giving him or her enough love, care and attention is another thing all together. As humans, life has a way of keeping us busy. Sometimes it seems like 24 hours in a day is not just enough. But we have to make the conscious effort to create time for the things that matter most in our lives. Family over everything. I have a video on the 7 Dangerous And Most Overlooked Things That Destroy Marriages And Relationships. Watch it and you will be shocked at what you will discover.

In my years of being a wife and a mother, I have come to realize one thing: I cannot do everything by myself. I am not perfect on my own. I am flawed. I have weaknesses. But one thing is clear: Christ in me, the Hope of Glory. On my own strength I would easily burn out. But when I look unto the Good Lord, in Him I find Strength and Wisdom to be the Wife and Mother He wants me to be.

All I have to do is seek His counsel and follow His leading. Only in God. Outside of Him, I continue to fail. But in Him and by Him, I am a Super Wife and Mother. 😊.

I’m going to leave you guys with my favorite verse of the Bible. Psalm 9:10 which says;

Those who know Your nameΒ trust in you,Β for You,Β Lord, have never forsakenΒ those who seek You.”

Have a blessed week my dear friends! 😘.

Love,

Olivia.
