Yes, this is a gushy post about my amazing husband - I hope you'll bear with me :)
I have always had issues with self confidence and low self image and am prone to making self-depreciating comments. Rick is my biggest fan and has always has complete faith in my abilities (far more than I do!)
Since beginning this lifestyle, Rick has become far more attuned to my needs, my moods, when I'm stressed, worried etc. He assures me every single day of his love for me with his wonderful sweet words and actions. He also recognises when I am lacking in confidence and need encouragement. The self depreciating comments are slowly diminishing as Rick no longer tolerates them. I know that he has my back and that he is there to lean on when I need it.
All these things were present before Dd to some degree, but their presence is so much stronger now. He is simply my rock. He gives me strength and encourages me fully with any endeavour I undertake and makes me feel that I am capable.
I am under 5 foot tall, but Rick makes me feel like I am 10 feet tall. With his help and encouragement I am slowly gaining in self confidence, but it is still a work in prgress.
I am thankful to my husband for leading us on this incredible ttwd journey. It isn't easy. I struggle with keeping to the rules all the time (such as bedtimes and texting) and submission sometimes takes a hike, but I really wouldn't have it any other way.
The song is You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban. I am sure you probably know it, but if not take a look. I think he has an absolutely amazing voice, I hope you enjoy:)
"You Raise Me Up"
When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
