You Make Me Better



You make me a better person when you sit and listen to my hurts.


You make me a better person with your love of adventure and the need you have to go see the world – yet wanting me with you.


You make me a better person by encouraging my love to write and minister to others.


You make me a better person when you empty the dishwasher, fold the clothes, or pick up the house because you know I’m feeling overwhelmed.


You make me a better person by challenging me to think bigger, broader, and to pick my battles.


You make me a better person when you gently remind me that I’ve lost my temper with the kids and that it will be okay.


You make me a better person because you like to go fast and I like to go slow. You stretch me when I’d so often remain in my comfort zone.


You make me a better person by loving me despite my flaws showing me that to be loveable doesn’t mean you have to be perfect.


You make me a better person because of the deep questions you ask about life, love, and God.


God knew my life would be richer, deeper, stronger because of you in it. You – Make – Me – a – Better – Me.

Thank you for this! I am going to use it as a sort of checklist for discerning a potential relationship that is starting to blossom.

You're welcome! It's not extensive. There are so many more things you could add to "your list." Make it personal. :)

Happy Anniversary! Love the post and the thought to look at how one's spouse betters them. So sweet.
