So God Made a Mother Collection ➔

Husbands don’t get enough credit. 

Mine doesn’t at least, and that’s mostly my fault because I should tell him thank you more often.

Being a mom is hard, don’t get me wrong. The mental load is enough to do me in most days and don’t get me started on being the family taxi driver. But husbands don’t get enough credit. 

We do different things for our family, but at the end of the day, I couldn’t do what I do without him by my side. He’s the calm to my chaos, the voice of reason to my worry, the “maybe you shouldn’t” to my impulse, and the one to call me out when I need it. 

My husband doesn’t get enough credit. 

For the hours he works or for the load he carries for our family. Worry, stress, and responsibilities weigh heavy on him too, and I often forget that. Most of the time the parenting struggles fall on mom, but dads carry them too.

So, here’s to the husbands who do it all and never complain. Thanks for holding our family together.

You deserve more credit.

Leaning on My Husband Makes Me a Stronger Woman www.herviewfromhome.com

I’ve seen the blogs and heard the comments from other women telling girls and young women to never depend on a man. As if somehow depending on a man is weak or makes you less of a woman. Well, then call me weak and less than because I depend on this man right here. He’s the one who hears me when my words are too soft for anyone else to hear. He’s the one who stands by my side but steps away to let me lead when it’s my time. He’s the one standing in the background saying, “You’ve got...

To the young lady looking for a husband, Don’t marry a man for his looks. Time and circumstance will change your appearance, and 9/10 odds they’ll change his too. Don’t marry him for his hygiene. Chances are that no matter how good you think he smells now, you’re probably still going to involuntarily gag whenever he gets within 15 feet of you during those beloved days of morning sickness and pregnancy nausea. And once the baby arrives? Well, chances are that neither of you will be winning any cleanliness awards for a while. Don’t marry him for his strength. He...
