Recently, my husband and I were having a late night conversation about our family. I thanked him for being the spiritual leader that he is. He responded with his usual sweet, “Thanks, babe!”
And then he said: “It can be really hard sometimes.”
It shouldn’t have startled me. I mean, of course it’s hard. He has the tremendous responsibility of leading our family on Christ’s path. And that responsibility is about to grow with the (any day now!) birth of our first child. I’m sure that, right now, the reality of this is weighing on him more heavily than normal.
