Three Dozen Imperfections

"Of all the people in the world, your dad knows better than anyone just how many flaws and imperfections your mom has," my dad's friend commented to me. "But of all of the people in the world your dad speaks and acts like your mom doesn't have any flaws and imperfections. To him, she is perfect."

What a neat compliment! I was so proud of my dad that day many years ago. I was reminded and reassured that my dad loved my mom so much that to him she was perfect. And to make it even better, everyone around them recognized that he loved her that much.

I resolved then that I wanted a marriage like that. What a cool way to approach marriage.

Today I can honestly and confidently tell you that Cami is perfect. If she has any flaws or imperfections I cannot see them. And I won't ever agree with you if you tell me she does.

I stumbled on an insightful and true statement recently and would like to share it. "We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly." (author unknown)

How do you find a perfect person and fall in love with them? Start with loving an imperfect person and change the way you see them.

My dad often says "When men get married they hope their wives will never change. When women get married they hope their husbands will change. They both end up disappointed."

One's outlook is everything, especially in marriage.

Here are the three dozen imperfections (okay, it's not really that many) that keep us from seeing the perfection in our spouses:

  1. Pride
  2. Arrogance
  3. Selfishness
  4. Laziness
  5. Self pity
  6. Regret
  7. Lack of energy
  8. The media
  9. We never thought it of that way before
  10. Pettiness
  11. [add your own reasons]
I have made a decision to see my beautiful wife as perfect. I love her all the more for it. It requires me to be humble, selfless, work hard, and be dedicated each and every day. But it is worth it. 

I love having a perfect wife!

  1. What a wonderful way to look at a wife. Guess that makes me perfect too cause my hubby thinks so! Thank you for sharing your lovely post with us here at “Tell Me a Story.”

  2. My husband treats me very well all the time. I'm NOT perfect, especially as I'm aging and my brain and body don't work quite as well as when he connected to me about 29-1/2 years ago. I think he's a real treat... forever and ever. Our ages are significantly different... a whole long story on my blog... and, since he's younger, he is usually able to deal with my situations. It's a blessing to be blessed, believe me. Thanks for sharing and encouraging.
