I Love My Husband

I just need a few minutes to rave about my hubby. Sure, he sucks sometimes. So do I. So does everybody. Most of the time, though, he's pretty awesome. I hear so many ladies complaining about their men. And I totally get that, we need to let off some steam every once in a while. But these ladies all sound so disenchanted with their husbands and it makes me feel bad for them because I am not.

My husband works hard every day to put food on our tables and a roof over our heads. He gets up when we are still asleep and has to go out into the cold when we are still snuggly. There is no resentment- he still kisses us good-bye and loves us just the same. And he doesn't stay at work any longer than he has to. Lots of men do that to avoid going home. My husband actually likes us, he enjoys our company.

My husband helps me around the house. Not always consistently, but the most that he can. He doesn't complain about it, just does what needs to be done. He repairs things. It's such a cliché for a man to be handy- I can't help it, he really is. He can even fix cars.

My husband loves his children. He doesn't always have patience for them, neither do I. However, he tries to be the best dad he can and that makes him exactly that. My husband respects me. Even when he is upset with me, even when I am getting on his last nerve, he treats me the way I would like to be treated.

Best of all, my husband loves me. Of course he could be more affectionate, maybe even more romantic. And, as every couple does, we have our issues. But I never get the feeling that he is sick of me or that I need to worry about him running off with someone else.

I am so glad I married this man. I am grateful that he is the father of my children. I hope you're as lucky as me!
