Wedding Wednesday- Life after the wedding

Earlier this week The Count pointed out something about me that I needed to work on. It hurt me a lot, he didn't do it in a mean way, but I have always had a problem with criticism and this time was no different. I wouldn't address the issue when it was brought up because I wanted to think about what I would say. My first reaction was "who the heck do you think you are telling me what I need to work on? Let me tell you what you need to work on (insert list of things here I would make up). You fix those things and then come back to me and deal with my issues." After I finished that tirade in my head I thought about what I was actually saying. He is my future husband and I have to get ready to submit to him. I've never been a total rebel, but I do have a super smart mouth that would probably hurt my marriage more than enhance it. So after thinking about what the count said I'm now ready to sit down and talk to him about it. We'll talk about his concerns, what he thinks I should do, and what I plan to do. I'm in a much better mood now because I realize that when somebody cares about me enough to speak the truth in love then I need to be wise enough to not just hear it, but accept it as well.
