My husband

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

I was reading a book that encourages concentrating on the best most positive parts of our lives. I have a great husband and a wonderful marriage. Before you think that I must be a newlywed I'm not. We will be married 22 years next anniversary and we met 28 years ago this month. When I get up at 4:30 AM to go to work he gets up too even though hes retired now. He makes my breakfast, starts my car and in the winter he shovels a path to my car. He takes me to work if he thinks the roads are bad. He does the dishes, helps with the laundry, does the yard work, maintains the cars, and helps with cleaning the house. Recently when I have had problems with my back hes given me massages twice a day. The other day when I was depressed over my oldest son I cried in his arms and he was very supportive even though he doesn't get along with him and for good reason. They had a very difficult relationship over the years and my oldest wanted us to split up. My oldest thought if I wasn't with his dad I should be alone although he didn't think his dad needed to stay alone. He adopted my other son who was rejected by his biological father he would have adopted both but my oldest didn't want to be adopted. We had 7 children together. He was my labor coach all 7 times and we have raised several teens together. He still opens doors for me and if he sees me lifting anything heavy he carries it for me and says I should ask for help. He buys roses for my birthday, our anniversary and many other special days. I often tell my friends that even when other things go wrong I can always count my husband and our marriage as a great blessing in my life!

    Oh Karen, your blog brought tears to my eyes. What a beautiful 'love letter' to your husband! It makes me really moved and happy for you to know you have such a special, caring and kind man by your side. This is truly a blessing, and you deserve it.

    This is a beautiful blog and its so great to know how much you two appreciate eaach other. I heard a group of ladies complaining about their husbands one day and it was shameful to hear it. Your praise of your husband is refreshing. Congradulations on all those years.

    How very blessed you are Karen. I've been through 2 marriages and all I can say is if I had someone that treats me like your hubbie does, I'd still be married. emoticon Donna

    Your husband seems to share many of the same qualities as my beloved MrV. We have shared in the covenant of marriage for forty-five years & he has treated me with the greatest respect & gentleness from the moment we met.

    I've actually had other women remark that I have “trained my husband well” & I am quick to get the record straight by telling them that he actually came the way he is. emoticon He is, & always has been, one sweet, thoughtful, considerate, decent, loving, generous, & caring man!

    The thing about my husband that I appreciate the most is that he is a godly man – desiring to do our Creator God’s will in all areas of his life. When a man has such aims for his life journey it benefits all who are blessed to touch lives with him.

    I say that you & I are indeed very blessed beyond measure with such life partners!

    May the good Lord bless us both with many more years of marriage with the good men whom He has given us the honor & privilege of sharing our lives with!
