“The only thing worse than a man you can’t control is a man you can.”
I found this quote today by Margo Kaufman and I liked it. It reminded me of how thankful I am for my husband. No, I don’t feel like I control him, nor do I want to control him. Even though I may “run” the day-to-day things in our lives, he is ultimately the final decision maker. I respect his decisions and appreciate that he always has the best in mind for the both of us. I am glad he is not a wishy-washy kind of guy and that he can take charge when need be. Some women may argue that this is backwards from the whole women’s liberation thing. I disagree. Greg always treats me like an equal. I think we have a good balance. It is such a relief that I can look to him for support when things get rough; he is steady and trustworthy. I even appreciate it when he tells me to “quit being a punk”. Seriously. Sometimes I need that.
