14 Thanksgiving for my Marriage


Sometimes people say sorry without using words, the words we so desperately want need to hear.  Today I am thankful that my spouse does say sorry, with words and actions.  I am also grateful for how my spouse responds when I say I am sorry.  Want to read more?  Check out great post, “When He Doesn’t Say He’s Sorry“.  Here is an excerpt below.

I went about 8 years in my marriage before my husband said the words “I’m sorry” to me.

Honestly, I don’t even think he realized it.

It’s not that he didn’t show it in some other way eventually but those were words that were hard for him.

We’d have a major blow up fight.  Yelling and screaming.  Until he’d be so angry he couldn’t speak, let alone concentrate on the issue we were focused on.  And I’d feel the same.  Are we talking in circles?   Does he even hear the words coming out of my mouth?   Will he just stop interrupting me so I can finish a sentence????


When sorry doesn't cut it...

Whether you aren’t getting the words “I’m sorry”, hearing them too often because your spouse feels forced to say it or there is an issue you’ve heard I’m sorry about too many times to count, yet it continues… someone in the 24-7 Commitment Communities knows exactly where you are right now.

With such a large community building up, it isn’t often someone has an issue that no one has experienced yet. Someone always has some words of comfort or wisdom.  Not to mention advice to address the issue and strengthen the marriage.

If you’re interested, check out one of the 24-7 Commitment Communities today.  The Fire Wife Sisterhood is for women who are married to, engaged to or dating a firefighter.  The Honor Guard for Men is a group of male firefighters who want to honor not only their marriages, but the marriages of their brothers as well.
