I sighed as I reached into my closet and pulled out yet another article of clothing that just didn’t make the cut. You see, my husband and I were heading out to a special awards banquet in which he would be honored for fifteen years of service at his company.
So what’s a girl to do? For me, the answer was simple. Cato. I loaded the kids up in our van and within thirty minutes I was navigating a stroller through the too-small aisles, promising if they were good, we would head to the dollar store next door and pick out a prize.
After a another good thirty minutes, we emerged into the bright sunlight, with a new outfit in tow. I wanted to purchase something a bit more ‘dressed up’ then my everyday clothing, but I something I could definitely wear again.
I really adored the lace detailing at the bottom of the knit shirt. I purchased the top, gray pencil skirt, and necklace at Cato. I pulled the black leggings and gray boots out of my closet.
My fifteen-year-old-modest-fashion-blogger-daughter instructed me to pose looking away from the camera. I don’t think I’m pulling this look off very well, y’all!
While getting dressed, I began pondering the upcoming award banquet. I was so grateful that my husband was to be honored in this way, but it got me to thinking. Unfortunately, at times I do not honor him enough. With my words, actions and deeds, the way a godly wife really should.
When I forget about making him dinner because I’m in the middle of making an etsy order.
When I roll my eyes when he talks about purchasing an item that I don’t deem needful.
When I continuously choose to eat granola bars in bed when the haphazard crumb drives him batty.
These things might seem small, but God has called me to honor my husband even in the little things! To put his needs before my own…because, believe me when I say that he does the same for me.
I’ve renewed my resolve to honor my man in the little things.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
