I did not come into our marriage with the dream of being an archer. During the first few years, it was tough. Shooting did not come naturally for me. Then came hunting season when I was sitting in a tree, shivering, seeing nothing and pondering all I could have been doing at home. There were even tears shed as I struggled to love my husband by sharing this love of his.
Fast forward to the present and I can honestly say I am thankful I pushed through those difficult years and continued participating in this activity that I knew my man loved. Not only have my skills improved, but our whole family bonds with bows in our hands.
Wife, don’t throw in the towel too quickly. Keep trying to find an area you can join in a hobby that your husband loves. It is important for us to continue to play with our spouse; recreating together is an easy way to connect and make memories. Go play. Make play time. It is time to play together.
