Marriage Mondays- Perfection is My Enemy

I'm posting this each Monday. I feel it's a great way to reflect on the the joys, troubles, funny, very relatable things that make our marriage uniquely ours. Love for you to join in and stop by to Come Have a Peace for more encouragement!

You all know that song from Christian radio. "Gotta couple dents in my fender, gotta couple rips in my jeans..." Well, that's how I have felt all last week. I came down with a major case of allergy/sinus issues and was not up to much for 3 days. That's kinda just not acceptable when you are a wife and mom of 3. I pushed through with the help of my hubby. I have so many things that have to get done. They aren't even options, people.

Dinner still needs to get made, laundry washed, homework checked. I failed to get these done a couple times last week. I anxiously waited for 6pm to arrive so I could "tag" Tim. Instead of reminding me of what wasn't getting done, Tim got the kids in bed each night, no one complained that we ordered pizza one night and then had another easy, B- dinner the next. Didn't do much real cooking this weekend either. -yay for the grill!-Yes, laundry is over flowing in my bathroom and clean clothes have yet to be put away.

I never claim to be perfect, I'm just me. Full of faults, dents, rips- trying to keep the pieces together. I know that God works for the glory of His purpose and I was reminded of how blessed I am to have a "tag team partner" in this life.

Now, I do know that my 30 day Gentleness Challenge is being tested...that's a whole other blog post. Praying that with feeling mostly better, that I'll get all areas back on track :)

Dear Sarah, I love the way you described your hubby ... a "tag team partner." What a wonderful title! Marriage happens along with all of the "real life" challenges of our days, including sinus infections and mounds of laundry, so that approach is a great one.

Blessings to you for a great week of doing life together, and thanks for linking up to MM,
