It would have done me well to remember this yesterday.

I blew it BIG time.
I disappointed and frustrated my husband.
I knowingly didn't meet his expectations. 
In that moment, there was a breakdown in our relationship.

In the past, I would have shut down. I would have turned to the silent treatment. I would have ignored his comments and pushed everything under the rug.

Instead, I sat in the room and engaged in the conversation.
I allowed him to be angry without trying to turn the tables and make it about him.

We both had time to process and then we re-engaged with each other a few hours later. The situation wasn't completely resolved until I asked for forgiveness. A simple "I'm sorry" doesn't make it better, a change of heart does. 
We're not perfect, we are a work in progress.
