Being women, we have this amazing power to dream about the future. We look at our coming year and see dusty hayrides, bonfires and bubbling apple pies for the fall; we smell evergreen trees, and picture cold little fingers wrapped around hot cocoa for the wintertime, we see sunlight in precious blond wisps of hair as girls pick wildflowers and we can smell the new earth thawing out from the winter and know that muddy boots will be following soon. For summer, we get to experience the fear along with our 6 yr old as she stands at the tip of the diving board before her first jump into the deep waters. I guess what I’m trying to say, is that we have a vision of how our family is supposed to work and it’s positive and full of good things and happy times. We have hopes and experiences that we anticipate with the coming of each season and each year.
One gift that we could give to our husband’s is to see them in this same light.
”Smith said that family ought to see a man less for what he is, and more for what the man wants to be. Said that’s called grace. I reckon he’s right.“

We can forget about all of his flaws and grab hold of his dreams and anticipate good things for our future. We can let go of our fears, quit trying so hard to be perfect, and just dream. Dream of the days when he will write that book he’s always talked about, and how he will disciple and teach so many about Christ throughout his days, and adoption?…maybe adoption will help us bring more precious, vulnerable, souls into heaven? Dream about how every sex book out there says we still have the best ten years ahead of us and that it will just keep getting better as I finally figure out how to relax and he can gradually last longer and longer as he ages !
Dream of the days when he tearfully walks those precious girls down the aisle. Dream of going to Ireland someday (just him and me), and his old wrinkled strong hand grabs my wrinkled girly hand and pulls me behind a pub for a hidden kiss on cobblestone streets. Dream of loud, crowded Christmas’s full of grandkids ripping paper and relieving our exhausted daughters-turned-moms from tiny infants.
Share your dreams with your husband, let him know you have faith in him, let him know that he is the one you want to share your future with…..and you are very excited for what might be in store.
