A couple times a month I help with a program for the girls in my church. They are all between 8-11 and so crazy awesome. And by that I mean they are literally crazy and literally awesome. Well, we were doing a freeze dance competition. And let me tell you, these kids knew every word to almost every song of the Nightmare Before Christmas. Remember, they are awesome.
Well, one girl got hit by another girl accidentally and was bummed out. So I let her help me with the music on my phone (Yay for Galaxy phones that are loud enough to use for these kind of events.)
While she was looking through my phone, she saw a picture of me and Zac. She looked at it for a minute, then looked at me and said 'is this your husband?'
To which I said 'that's why I have a picture of me and that man on my phone.'
She blushed just a little bit and then said 'he looks.... .... .... ..... good.'
To which I cracked up. Who knew that me and 8 year olds would crush on the same boys?!?! He's mine sister! And sadly this is not the first time that this has happened. We all want to marry Harry Potter too. Who knew 8 year olds were so cool?
And now without further stories that you would really have had to be there to get, let book club begin!
Aunnie Sauce and For Women Only by Shaunti Feldhahn
I love how Shaunti notes that respecting our husbands isn't just about how we treat them, it's also how we take care of ourselves! We don't have to be stick-thin, but showing that we care about ourselves demonstrates how much we care about our husbands.
This book gives you insight into the thoughts and actions of men. The author surveyed men of all ages and from all facets of life to get to the bottom of the answers in this book. I actually thought that it was going to give a little bit more of the nitty-gritty details, but I still learned a lot about what makes men—and specifically my husband—tick. Why they are tempted to look at the beauty walking down the street, why they love to come home and relax on the couch after work, why doing a project all by themselves (and without our "advice") is so important... it's all in there. This is a great book for any woman who wants to better understand the thoughts and actions of men, and for a wife who wants to help her marriage by giving her husband the respect he truly needs, and most importantly, deserves.
Dee and Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
"I told him a story of two people. Two people who shouldn't have met, and who didn't like each other much when they did, but who found they were the only two people in the world who could possibly have understood each other.”
