This one is dedicated to my hubby. I have been blogging since January 2010 about varied topics but this time I’d like to post a special entry for Bebs (hubby and I call each other “Bebs”. This has evolved over the years from “Be” [pronounced “Bay”] and we have our own funny story behind its “evolution”.) Anyway, I’m rambling a bit na so I’ll continue…
Earlier, Bebs and I were blessed to have a sort of “date” time when my parents unexpectedly took our kids along with them to send my niece and nephew home. There was no electricity at home and it was SOOO hot so Papa and Mama and our two little ones joined my Kuya and family for a “joyride” in the air-conditioned comfort of our family van. So hubby and I took advantage of the time and went malling (one of our favorite past-times when we were still single and childless 🙂
Even though all we did was look at a few cellphone stores in the nearby mall to see if there were any good offers, window-shop a bit for (what else?!) stuff the kids might need, and have dinner at one of our favorite Italian places (yummy!!!), it was a blessed time for us as husband and wife, and a kind of “day off” for me. Don’t take me wrong though, being a 24/7 hands-on mom is not something I resent, but having some time for yourself is important too right? And of course, time with hubby. I once read somewhere that the greatest gift a father could give his children was to love their mother (or something to that effect 🙂 And I totally agree! (hahaha biased!)
Anyway, while hubby and I were having dinner, I also took the chance to ask him about our finances.
You see, in our family, he’s the one who handles the budget (don’t be shocked! He’s much better at it than yours truly!). I was seeking his assurance and affirmation that despite upcoming major expenses we would still have money left over to save and invest. He assured me that we did. It is a great feeling to know that God, through hubby (and of course our families too!), was taking care of our needs!
I only pray that more than that, we would also one day reach our goal of making passive income through multiple income streams, so that we too could be more of a blessing to others. Just as God’s love makes hubby and I truly rich, we want to share His love and riches to others too!
Personally, I really thank God for my husband. Even though we have our differences and arguments, our faults and misunderstandings, I can really say that he is the one God wants for me. We complement each other and work together and are each other’s earthly reminders of God’s heavenly heart. We are imperfect as individuals and as a couple but are perfectly loved.
Bebs, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Just as that unfamiliar to many E-Heads song goes:
I take one step away
But I find myself coming back
My one and only
One and only you
For this truly rich wife, it’s only YOU. 🙂
I love yah Bebs! 🙂 Thanks for keeping up with my insanity! I am proud of you and am with you 100% of the way!
To all you WIVES out there, no matter what your husbands may have said or done, always remember that they are trying to LOVE you the best way they could. Even if they fall short so many times, and hurt us and disappoint us, we must never stop believing in their LOVE for us. And whenever times get tough, and the road is rough and bumpy and getting out seems the best way to go, STOP. Take time to PRAY. Never underestimate the power of a praying WIFE.
My prayers are with you. 🙂 Feel free to comment or contact me!
