My husband is gone this week. Which makes me incredibly sad. We haven’t been away from each other this long since high school. HIGH SCHOOL. I have no idea how military wives do it. My hat tips to you. He has only been gone for a day and I already find my self writing a blog post about him. More so to make myself feel better. It’s hard to be away from your spouse; Even though its also good to get a break every once in a while. But to me, an entire week is a tad bit too long. So instead of eating away my sorrows and loneliness(there’s already ice cream in the freezer calling my name) I thought I would share all the things I love about my husband. because sometimes (I know i’m not the only one) we forget to show gratitude to those who do the most for us. Its something I must get better at, but for the meantime, here are some reasons why I love my husband.
He is always there. Literally. My husband is amazing at being there for me. I could make him so mad and no matter what, if I need him, he is there.
He is my best friend. He was my best friend before we were dating and he will be my best friend long after this life. There are times when I need a husband, and there are times when I need a best friend. I am so lucky to have him there for both.
I am selfish, he is not. Maylene and I come before anything and everything. No matter the time of day, or what he has going on, he always makes sure we are taken care of.
He is incredibly hard working. My husband works ALL THE TIME. He works so hard to give us the life we have. He works from morning to night and never complains. When I am in doubt, he erasures me he is doing whatever he needs to in order to make our lives even better. His dreams are as high as the stars, yet he never stops reaching for them.
He is warm hearted. My husband is one of the most kind, generous, loving people I have ever met. It is one of the things that made me fall in love with him.
He is generous.When there is something I need or want, he is always willing to go the extra mile to get it for me. Even when I insist on not wanting it.
He is patient. So so patient. Being married to me is not an easy thing to do. My anger can sometimes get the best of me, and he has to witness it first hand. But he is always there to remind me of whats important and is always there to offer a kiss and a hug when it is needed.
He listens. Even when I swear he doesn’t.
He eats my food. Even when its disgusting. Which has happened more times than I can count!
He has a powerful mind. His mind is exploding with ideas. Some that could change the world. And one day, I know they will.
He loves me. And he shows me how much he loves me multiple times through the day. Whether making me breakfast, cooking me dinner, or giving me the best back rubs in the world when he would rather be sleeping. He is the absolute best.
My husband is someone special. I am lucky to go through life knowing what it feels like to be loved and cared for. My husband has taught me to love and to be more kind. To be more patient, and more loving than ever before. I owe him everything. I wouldn’t be where I am now without his support and guidance and love. I will need the rest of my life to show him my gratitude and appreciation. I pray everyone gets to experience his type of love. Because our world definitely needs more of it.
