This week I felt compelled to share a few of the tools I have in my tool chest to help me pour into my marriage. As a working mom of three kids, I often feel tired and exhausted, where I don’t always have the energy to love on my husband. Overall, I think my husband and I do a good job staying connected and focusing on our marriage. We put in the work, we fight, we apologize and we continue to move forward like most couples. But what does it actually mean to be focused on your marriage?
The month of February is jam packed with so many opportunities to dive deep, be creative, learn and explore. Not only do we have Valentine’s Day, but we also celebrate Black History Month, President’s Day, Chinese New Year, and the Super Bowl.
Outside of She is Regal, I work full time for a large tech company. I work from home. Before Covid-19 I worked from home without kids, now I work from home WITH kids in a Zoom Classroom. This picture was taken last Friday. It was finally sunny outside, I was enjoying my warm Starbucks AND my Be Strong and Courageous fleece pullover during a moment of calm in my house. If you don't have one yet, you must get one ASAP! It has a unisex fit & is SO soft.
All around me, on the news, on social media, in conversation, people are so adamantly saying how terrible 2020 was and they can’t wait for it to end. Yes 2020 was rough, but I also saw so much growth taking place. COVID-19 has directly touched my life in a variety of ways. I’ve seen sickness, I’ve seen job loss, I’ve seen pain, I’ve struggled with having my three kids at home, I’ve struggled to homeschool them, my work performance has been lackluster, my marriage was tested and believe me, I’ve shed MANY tears.
