How many times have you been on Facebook or at a sisters gathering and over hear a sister talking about her husband? She maybe laughing with her friends and she may make a subtle joke about her spouse, or you have some that will be very open and frank about their spouse in a manner that does not make their spouse look good.
Or perhaps you are not at a gathering and you are home. It's just you and your husband, and you decide that you can talk to him in any kind of manner, maybe because he made you upset that day. Or perhaps you no longer care about his interest due to loosing respect for him. Have you found yourself talking to him as if he was one of your children? Did you realize you was openly sighing when he starts talking or stating his views? How about those eyes, are you rolling them as he talks to you?
I used to scribble your name on my papers
And I imagine your smile within my thoughts
Sometimes I wonder how I got there
I never thought I had a chance
So many sad lullaby's and distorted truths
I never thought I had a chance
In another world I'm a little bolder
A little bit more creative with a pen & a pad
In another world I have enough energy to chase you & to listen to all your stories
In this world I'm currently thinking of you
With my head in my hands & with so many thoughts
I just wish I could show you how much you really mean to me
Why do we let the storms we deal with change our minds from the times I used to scribble your name on my paper?
Oh how I long to be back where I was or at least be able to go through the storms with the understanding that they are meant for us to grow through together and not to tear us apart
I get nervous that I'm just too cheesy for my own good
The Shaitan creeps in and I doubt myself all over again
But in my mind I'm a legend that has this amazing ability to put all my thoughts into actions
I'm thinking of you...
But my thoughts are not enough
I can't imagine my life without you
Your face calms me
Your determination always inspires me
I'm thinking of you
In awe of you
I love you Abdullaah
Marriage is a beautiful institution. Al Hamdulillaah it has its benefits.

What are the 10 habits of healthy couples you ask?
I know you guys heard the phrase before "Play hard to get" when it comes to dealing with a man.
What is playing hard to get?
Playing hard to get means: to deliberately adopt an aloof or uninterested attitude, typically in order to make oneself more attractive or interesting.
A lot of us have done this before, right?
And a lot of us do this in marriage.
First, what does musing mean?
plural noun: musings
a period of reflection or thought.

I have had so many moments of musings when I was in polygyny.
1. This story was written injunction with a series on the blog about dealing with Polygyny which I shall revamp.
2. If Polygyny bothers you then please view all the other articles I have written on this blog.

"It's my job to nourish you every day of my life. Every day it's my job to nourish you with healthy food but also with words of encouragement. If ever you are deprived of these things then I have not done my job.
Depriving you of what nourishes your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being is wrong. If it is in my control then I am wrong. Every day that I decide not to fill your cup up then it's another day that hurts the family and pushes us back on the bar of progress. When I don't let you lead then I'm not trusting you with your position.
