~ My Husband Rocks! ~ breaking the cycle . . .

Click here to read about why I started MHR Fridays!


If you've never read the book Love and Respect by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, I would highly recommend it. In the first couple of chapters, Dr. E describes what he calls the "crazy cycle" in which a husband and wife often find themselves. Basically it starts out with the wife being disrespectful to her husband, so he responds by being unloving, which only inspires her to be more disrespectful, and you see how it can all go downhill from there. Anyone who has ever been married can understand how easy it is to find oneself on this cycle, and it is not a fun ride!

Well, last night I got the cycle spinning but good. I was being a first-class brat, and at first, Austin spun right along with me. But then his whole demeanor changed. He made the concious decision to be the bigger person, and he loved me (in my own "language") in spite of my nasty, spiteful, disrespectful attitude.

It's heartbreakingly wonderful to be loved like that!

Why does your spouse rock this week?

As always, on Fridays Union 28 will refund your shipping on any order of two or more items if you mention the great adventure and ~my husband rocks! Fridays~ in the "how did you hear about us?" section of your order form, so run on over there and check them out, too! Thank you Union 28!

Hope you all have a fantastic Friday, and a wonderful weekend!


  1. Amen! I agree completely about the "Love and Respect" book being right on target. Recognizing the crazy cycle and responding with that knowledge changes everything, doesn't it?

    I just found this meme because I was searching for "My Husband Rocks" t-shirts. I'd seen them online but couldn't remember that Union 28 sells them. In any case, it's a fantastic idea for a meme, and I can't wait to participate! With the next two Fridays being Christmas and New Year's Day, it might be a few weeks before I do, though.

  2. I already do a Friday Fragments linky post so I posted "My Husband Rocks" one today but was too late to add it to your Mr. Linky I see. So, here's my link:

    I think this is such a nice thing to do but don't have something to share every week.

  3. Hope all is well! I finally got back to MHR after a crazy 3 month hiatus. Hope you're not having one of those crazy seasons in life right now.


Always great to hear from you! I ALWAYS read your comments, and they make my day!

Thank you!
