I have the best husband ever. like..ever.

Thursday, January 01, 2015

So it's 12:45 new year's day my time. Everyone is tuckered out, and tucked in, and I'm pretty happy about my overall situation.

My husband, who's not feeling well, just went to bed. This was after spending a lot of time making delicious appetizers, a wonderful dinner, and trying his damndest to stay up til midnight.

I finally figured out my super power. You know, all those quizzes, questions, "what would you like as a super power"? I thought it was invisibility, but it's not.

I wish people could see themselves as I see them.

He thinks he's lame. He kissed me ( a very we-could-have-gone -straight-to-bed kiss), and I told him to go to bed. He's been on vacation, and still fielding calls from work like crazy. Because that's who he is.

He made spinach artichoke dip, and li'l smokies (because the kid loves them), and steak, baked potatoes and asparagus for dinner.

AND he did the dishes.

This man often wonders, out loud, why I'm with him.

We're very different people, to be certain, but my God! I get back rubs (with no 'I'm doing this so you'll blow me' type stuff). He cooks. Cleans. Takes care of the kid when I go out with friends. Makes pretty good money. Buys kids coats or shoes every Christmas. Rocks my world in the bedroom. Is nicer to me 'that time of the month', or when he knows a death anniversary is coming up. Sends me flowers to work. Calls me all the time when he's leaving work, to hear my voice.

I am blessed. So very, very blessed. And he doesn't even know it. And he should, because I tell him, but he doesn't believe it.

So yeah, that'd be my super power. It'd be cool for friends too, who don't often see their worth.

SO! This new year....Please see your worth. And act accordingly.

    You are a beautiful person both inside and out! To truly be able to see people for what they are worth and be able to express that out loud is a superpower and you have it in spades!

    Yes you are blessed, but so am I! I've been married to the love of my life for over 44 years, and everyday with him is so precious. He's been fighting Stage 4 Cancer (treatable, but ultimately terminal) for almost two years, but does he ever get down? NO! He worries more about me than himself, and continues to take care of me in every way. I love this man with all my heart and cannot imagine my life without him, which is sadly going to be my reality. So today, I take great joy in the time we have left and I may have to argue with your statement that you have the best husband in the world. My guy is pretty FINE!!!

    Gee, Shay, I thought I had the best husband ever -- and I've test-driven a few of them. He cooks, cleans, IRONS his own shirts! He also drives in bad weather, keeps the wood stove going all night so the house is warm in the morning, considers my suggestions, and never tells me they're hare-brained or just plain stupid. He makes me feel safe, and that's a really big thing for me, because I never felt safe growing up.

    So, we could square them off against each other and see who wins emoticon , or we could just keep considering ourselves two of the luckiest women alive.

    I loved this blog! He is blessed, too, to have a wife who recognizes his worth and appreciates it! Try to make 2015 the year you get through to him of how you really appreciate him, leave him notes, etc!
    Wishing you a great Happy New Year!

    What a wonderful heartfelt compliment to your husband Shay. The amount of love you have for him is oozing out all over (mind out of the gutter please) lol! He is a keeper for sure. I have to say that I have a love, passion and appreciation for my husband too. We have had our problems here or there over the last 30 years but I could not imagine my life without him. He completes me. Anyway.....I agree that you should show him your post. I am confident he would feel the love. Shay, all that love you have for your husband is the type of love you are deserving of. I am glad you have a man in your life that realizes that. Happy New Year my friend! xoxo emoticon

    We should start a club! Like you, I feel so blessed. I love my husband of 23 years and believe he is the greatest thing that ever happened to me. I have one other friend who feels this way too. I've never heard her say a negative thing about her husband. I mentioned this to her once, and we agreed that everyone has problems, but so much of happiness is being grateful for the blessings you have, so we both focus on that. I wish all of my female friends were that way. Sometimes, I feel like Pollyanna when they are hating on their husbands and I refuse to join in. Cheers to you and your wonderful husband. Happy New Year!

    That is awesome. There are many people that are lucky enough to have found their soulmate and I am glad you are one of them. I found mine many years ago as well!
    Happy New Year! All the best to you in this new year!

    Love Twesten1's response - let him see your blog and all the responses but it sounds like even then he won't believe - you are a very lucky woman! Happy New Year
    2099 days ago
    Well, guess what! I like his humility! What a sweet, non-arrogant guy! It's so clear how much you love each other, and it was touching that on this day you took the time to list all his wonderful qualities. AS TWESTEN says, I'm sure he could produce a similar list of reasons for why he loves YOU! May you stay in love forever!

    I'm trying to think what other aspects of your life could be going better ... and ya know ... I think you are just about got all of it. Way to go you and Mr. Vader there.

    (Though please keep this under wraps...he'll end up making the rest of us look bad haha ... though in reality ... way to go hubby of yours.)

    You (and hubby) have an aweseom 2015.

    Does he have a twin? is his dad single? Going even further, has his mothership landed to pick him up? Where on the=is planet did you ever find a jewel like him??????????

    That is awesome.... have him read your blog today. Maybe he needs to see it in print :) And yes, have his brother call Colette ~ she could become your sister in law one day!!!! (I'd be jealous though!).

    Seriously, he sounds like a gem. I am happy for you. Of course, I'm sure he'd have amazing things to say about you too. Happy New Year, chickie!
