I hate it when wives do what their husbands do just because their husbands do it.
It’s the womanist in me…my inner rebel. I met Shaun in church when we were in high school. He left to attend Morehouse here in Atlanta. I came two years later to attend Spelman. But I did NOT follow him. It’s what drew us together initially. He wanted to go to Morehouse. I wanted to go to Spelman. It was a strange coincidence for two kids from Kentucky. It was a match made in heaven (or somewhere between heaven and hell, I guess). We dated long distance while I finished high school, and the rest is history. It just worked.
But since then, I’ve always rebeled against the idea of “following” him. I’ve gotten better as I’ve come to understand that it’s his God-given role to lead me. He can decide where we live, what car we purchase, etc., and I’ll usually oblige like the “submissive” wife (sorry that word still makes me cringe). Anyhow, I digress from my point.
I’m blogging because I usually have something to say about what Shaun’s blogging about, but he doesn’t want me using his blog to say it. He’s a better writer than me, and I think he thinks I cramp his style.
But I’m also blogging to have a place to express my thoughts, joys, and frustrations about family, work, life in general, and biggest of all CHURCH PLANTING! One of Shaun’s twitter friend’s said his wife lasted all of two posts. Well here are my two. We’ll see how much further I get.
