Works-For-Me Wednesday: Honoring My Hubby
You know what really works for me? A blog carnival dedicated to honoring your hubby! I am happy to participate in Kristen's S.W.A.K. Valentine's Carnival today. You should check it out and see how other ladies are honoring their hubbies.
I am so grateful to be married to my husband. He is a godly man, a great husband and father, a good employee, and many other things. He works hard to take care of our family and still manages to smile and crack jokes frequently.
When people ask how we met, I tell them that I got him in the Men's Department in J.C. Penney! And it's true!!
When I moved to California - my first job was at J.C. Penney. On my first day of work after training, I was introduced to all the employees in the Men's Department where I was scheduled. Guess who I met? A very tall, nice young man with a kind smile and a great sense of humor. We became good friends and the rest is history. I always think it's amazing that the day he met "the new girl", he had no idea that he would be "stuck" with her the rest of his life!
I can now look back on this and see that the reason that I moved out-of-state and away from family was to meet the man that God intended for me. I am delighted to say that we have been happily married for over 16 years! Thank you Lord!
My husband may not be perfect, but unfortunately for him - neither am I! He is patient to put up with my housework struggles, my grumblings about daily life, my tendency to create large stacks of paperwork, my need for fancy coffee drinks, and my love of blogging. He is willing to help me when I ask, even if it's to kill a nearby spider or to take a photo for my blog!
My husband is my best friend and I can talk to him about anything...except clothing, or new hairstyles, or makeup, or whether an outfit makes me look fat - Well, I COULD talk to him about those things too, but he is happier when I don't! I enjoy spending time with him, even if it's in silence. I get comfort just from the fact that he is there with me.
I love you honey and am thankful for all that you do! I am blessed to have you for my hubby!
You can honor your hubby too and link it up to the S.W.A.K. Carnival at We Are THAT Family.
