How I Rock My Marriage: Jamie


Hello ELF readers!  I am Jamie and I blog over at Handling With Grace?.  When I sat down and tried to think of the ways that I rocked the socks off of my marriage, I kept going back to thinking, "Hmm...  See that little human being that is growing and thriving under my watchful eyes?"  THAT is how I rock my marriage- by being a hands on, teaching, patient, loving Momma to our daughter.

But even though I continued to think of the ways that I bless my husband through my relationship with our daughter, I know that this is not what this particular post is supposed to be about.

I have a confession to make.  I am one of the single only women in blog land who does not have a perfect, easy marriage.  Yes, I hear your gasps of shock and horror.  I know, I know.  Believe me ladies.  I read your blogs, I know that your husbands are all perfect all the time and you never fight.  We, on the other hand, are not always perfect.

We fight.  We make up.  We laugh.  We cry.  We stew.  We dream.  We pout.  We cuddle.  We complain.  We giggle.  We press buttons.  We enjoy each other.

Something that I have learned over the past 15 years of dating him is that all of those things are OK.  It is how you handle the bad times that makes the difference.  The other thing that makes a difference is how you spend your good times.  We have a GOOD time together.

Being silly

I rock my marriage by trying to hold it together when it's bad and by having a freaking ball the rest of the time.  I rock my marriage by enjoying the heck out of life.  I rock my marriage by making my husband laugh.

Come visit me and say hi over at Handling With Grace? I would love to meet you!
