My Husband Needs Me



Sometimes we mothers get so wrapped up in the lives of our children. But, our husbands need to know they matter to us and that we want to spend time with them and meet their needs too.

I used to think my husband didn't need me. When my boys were really young, I gave them all of my time and attention. I wanted to be a really good mom so I read all kinds of books about parenting and kids’ learning styles. I kind of became a student of my kids so I could meet all of their needs.

The only problem was, I’d given so much to my kids that when my husband got home from work in the evenings I had nothing left to give to him.

One night my husband and I got into kind of an argument, and he ended up telling me he felt like our marriage wasn't a priority to me anymore. I got all defensive and told him the kids needed me more because they were children and he was a grown man.

You know what I discovered that night? My husband does need me just in a different way than my kids. He needs to know he matters to me, and that I want to spend time with him and meet his needs too.
