When i was younger- i read a great book by Debi Pearl about becoming a 'Help Meet'.
In my life, my goal was to learn and start working on ways to be the BEST wife/helpmeet for my husband.
This is a great ambition, but can be difficult when you dont know who he is, and the personality he will have. . .
In Mrs. Pearl's book, she breaks guys into three categories. They are labeled
Mr. Command Man
With each character she breaks down how they may act, think and ways you as a helpmeet can be a support, strength, fan, and of course helpmeet!
i have not re-read her book in a few years, but not long after meeting Jon, i have realized i have married Mr. Visionary. =)
i want to go and re-read the book, but i have learned one thing... He dreams BIG!
i dont EVER want to be a wet blanket to his goals, dreams, or ambitions... even if i think things should be done differently. i can be supportive, a voice of reason, but HOW i respond will affect him and his future visions and dreams.
After talking with him the other night, he gave me a hug and told me "thank you for being so supportive"
i told him this, (and it is something i want to stay true to it)
"i would much rather be the girl that holds your kite's string, than the one that pops your bubbles"
