The other day I got a direct message on Twitter from The Happy Wives Club.
It sounded familiar, but I couldn't really remember following them, or the site. I mean, I see and click through SO much on any given week day, on the ole internet. You know how it goes.
But, the DM addressed me personally, with my correct name and then Fawn (the tweeter) sent me a personal email asking me to write nice things about my husband and link up.
I thought, "I can do that, sure!"
In her email, she said not to worry about making it a singular post, that I could just add it on to whatever I already had planned to post about that day.
But guess what, I think my husband is pretty awesome.
He gets an entire post about him.
No, it's not his birthday, or our anniversary, but he's the love of my life, so ANY day should be a good one to talk about why I love him so very much, right?
First of all, he still makes me belly laugh after 13 years of marriage and 17 years together.
Also, he usually makes breakfast on the weekends and often lets me sleep in after he has worked extremely hard ALL week. And he brings me coffee, in bed.
He brings home the bacon (and cooks it!) (see above).
He takes me on trips.
He cares about other people, their lives and their feelings. I see this in him every day in some way or another.
Plus, he can talk me off my ledge better than anyone else.
He never complains about what I make for dinner, even if he doesn't really like it.
BONUS, He's super handsome! :)
He usually drives on long road trips.
He's a good father, who loves to blow-dry his daughter's hair, take the kids places and read to them. He really likes introduce them to new things he likes or things he loved as a child himself. He helps with homework and getting ready for church. He brings them treats and usually thinks of them before himself.
He does dishes (I have proof!)
He gives me gifts that he knows I will love and use.
He helps me make it work so that I can go to blog conferences. And Mom's nights and choir practice. And! have time to myself (mostly for shopping).
He helps me keep perspective and introduces me to new things too - new movies, new ways of thinking, new ideas.
And he puts up with me and LOVES me. And that is no small feat.
I love you Tim, and I do not tell you enough how much I appreciate you, your love for me and our marriage.
So, tell me, what do you LOVE about your husband?
And go ahead, write a whole post if you want, it's okay. :-)
