My Husband Rocks! ~ Patient and Understanding

I haven't posted a MHR Friday for a couple of weeks. I have a lot I could say! What comes to mind today is how patient and understanding my husband has been. I have a friend going through a hard time right now and she needed a place to stay. When I explained the situation to Scott, he agreed. We have another friend in need of some friendship and conversation. I invited him over for this weekend prior to talking to my husband. My husband was understanding and agreed we should be there for our friend.
I also made plans to go out tonight with a mutual friend of ours. The friend and I made all the arrangements prior to talking to Scott about it. Now, I am excited to say, Hubby and I are going out to dinner tonight in DC with a friend. It has been SO long since we have had a sitter and gone out! But my point is, I made plans and THEN told my husband about them. We have talked about this in the past and I agreed to always talk to my husband first prior to making plans. Yet, I still do this. SIGH I was confident that Scott would want to spend time with our friend from out of town and he does:) But this is something I really need to work on. After this weekend, I need to let my hubby do his own thing without any plans made!

I have that temptation, too.

What helps me is when I put myself in her place, then it causes me to get my priorities right by discussing plans with her FIRST, then making the plans if she is ok with them.
