Shout Out to My Husband

The other day there was a theme on Facebook.  It seemed to be "Complain About Your Husband" day.  My hubby had just come home from a long, tough day at work.  I looked over at him with love and knew that I needed to add a post to combat the attitude I had just seen.

So, my darling, this is for you.

This is just a small list of things that I love about him:

  • He tells me he loves me every single day.
  • He makes me feel beautiful, even when I don't feel beautiful.
  • He makes me laugh at things I normally wouldn't think are funny.
  • His incredibly quick wit.
  • He loves me unconditionally.
  • His work ethic.  I've never seen anyone with a work ethic like his.  It is inspiring.
  • The way I always feel protected when I'm with him.
  • His beautiful singing voice.  When he sings and plays the guitar for me, it's even better.
  • The way he randomly shows up with flowers. 
  • His attentiveness.  He has made an effort to get to know the real me, my likes and dislikes.
  • His spirituality and humility. 
  • His ability to remain calm in a crisis.  
  • His highly developed sense of fairness.
  • The way he always thanks me--for marrying him, for the things I do around the house, etc.  He makes me feel appreciated.
  • His generosity.  Towards me and towards others. 
  • He is a GREAT shopping partner.  While other husbands are sitting, bored, in a chair, mine is actually picking out clothes for me to try on.  
  • The way he has accepted my many pets. 
  • The way he can come home from a terrible day, leave it all behind, and laugh and have fun with me.  
  • The way he understands how important my family is to me.
  • His commitment and desire for us to have a successful marriage.
How could I snicker at some of those posts that were supposed to be funny, jabbing at mens' intelligence and ineptness, when sitting next to me was someone who I love and respect so much?  I couldn't. There are plenty of funny things that happen within a marriage, but I think they are the things you should be laughing at together.

I am incredibly grateful to all my husband has done for me and for us.  He is my partner in every way.  Thank you, my love.
