Teammates

I think one of the best parts of marriage is the fact that you have a teammate;
someone who is on your side through thick and thin, good and bad, sickness and health.


Recently, I've been feeling this season of change rolling into my life and I've shared with you all how change gives me anxiety and I'm not its biggest fan.  It brings me so much peace and comfort knowing that no matter what my hubby is in my corner rooting for me.

I was really blessed to be raised by an amazing set of parents who exhibited teamwork very well throughout their marriage.  I realized after becoming a teacher that not everyone is blessed with extraordinary parents like I am.

Being teammates doesn't mean that my hubby always agrees with me or that we do whatever the other person wants to appease them.  In fact, some times being a teammate means my hubby is the voice of reason when I get overly excited and can't think straight.  Sometimes it means I'm the one saying, we can't afford that or let's shop around.  We balance each other.

I think back to what it was like actually being a member of a team in college and how we spent all of our time together.  We were our own little family on campus.  We cheered each other on and picked each other up when we were down.  We gave each other reason to smile when things weren't going well and we cried together when we couldn't find a way to smile.  That's what marriage is about, too.  There are days that I don't have a reason to smile except to know that my hubby is going to come home and he is going to love me unconditionally no matter how my day has gone.

I love knowing that no matter what anyone else has to say, my husband is going to be there for me.  He celebrates my accomplishments with me.  He supports my passions.  He makes me a priority and, in turn, makes me feel special.

I pray that I do the same for him.  So much of our marriage is not just the team that we have become, but the team that we have in our relationship with God.  Marriage truly is a covenant between husband, wife, and heavenly Father.  Through prayer, love, and communication, our team is unstoppable.

  1. I hate anxiety, I too sometimes get it when change occurs. You just have to remind yourself that there is a bigger and better plan that the big man upstairs has for you. Pray continuously girl!

    Just wanted to let you know that I'm doing a Heylee B. Boutique Giveaway! I thought you might be interested.
