Becoming a Supportive Wife

My husband and I were on a date a few weeks ago, and we decided to spend some time going through our calendars, getting caught up.  We don't usually do this sort of thing on dates, and my husband would probably tell you he wasn't really excited about the idea of going through our calendars, but once we began talking through it, I told him, "This is really helpful for me to know when I [...]
