TO MY SWEET HUSBAND
So this blog is dedicated to my sweet husband.....I just want everyone to know what an amazing and compassionate man my husband truly is. This last week a really unfortunate thing happened. It seriously upset me, more than I even realized. I felt on the verge of tears at all times. I felt attacked and victimized. He just stuck with me. He assured me all was going to be good. He helped me write a letter to the offenders and helped me to do it in a way that he (in his diplomatic manner) would do it. Instead of the way I would do it. If I had my way I would have told them what stinky-heads they are, and go after them with a vengeance.
So in his kind and loving way, he gave me space and held me when I needed it and rallied me on. He is my ROCK.
I think of myself as so independent. But the older I get the more I realize that I depend on him sooo much. This man has NO judgements of me. He never criticizes me, and in the 23 years we have been married he has yet to get mad at me and call me a name. He is the most generous man. And everything he does, he does to make me happy. Unfortunately, I can't say the same.
SO for all you woman out there who think they have the best husband in the world......Hate to burst your bubble, but WRONG! That would be ME!
Here is the card he brought home to me the other night:
They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Well, what if you didn't sign up for extra-strength training? What if you'd rather catch a few breaks once in awhile? Is that so much to ask? At some point, you'd think you'd be entitled to a free pass or two: Skip this challenge. Avoid that crisis/ Delete those problems. It's not that you're not strong or that you don't have what it takes to get through this. You are, you do, and you will. But you've built enough character already, and it's time for things to lighten up a little!
I know it's not really my call, but if I were in charge of life's wheel of fortune, you'd get a free spin. And I'd be right there, cheering you on! - Hallmark
