Are you a Wanter or a Needer?

I think one of the things that make my marriage to T such a success is the "Opposites Attract" law.  While we are so alike in so many ways, we are so different in many ways also. One I will point out today is that I am a "WANTER" and T is a "NEEDER". Now me being a WANTER is easy to understand...I want shit.  T being a NEEDER is not to be confused with being NEEDY. She is not NEEDY but she knows the difference between WANTS and NEEDS. Thats one reason why it is good for me to have her by my side.

See I want......

Falcons tickets
With the Madden Game

This sweet truck
C hats. I love my C hats

Im sure there are more. My head is always filling up with stupid shit I want. But you know what? T knows better. See, while I am the WANTER, she knows that none of the stuff that I listed above are things I NEED.

What I NEED is...
Bills to be paid
A home to live in

See I need patience, understanding, and the ability to realize that things happen when you have kids. I need the knowledge that when you have kids all your wants become secondary and the needs turn into priorities and the priorities are taking care of the wife and kids.

So I may always talk shit about wanting this and that but really if you know me and the type of person I am.....

....Really all I want is for T and the 4 C's to be happy and taken care of.

But get me that shit and I wont complain.....

Do you know how to separate your wants and needs?

I love this post...My husband also makes sure we have our needs met before he addresses our wants and I must admit that I agree wholeheartedly with that...:-)

Great post, I too truly only care about providing for my family and making great memories with them. Being the geek that I am, I too have a long list of wants, which hopefully one day I will be able to obtain.
