My Husband

I want to share today how greatful I am for my husband.  I sometimes forget that not all husbands call their wife 2 or 3 times a day, during work to see how their day is going.  And I forget that not all family's have breakfast and dinner together every day and that my husband prays for our family each by name everyday.  I have a husband who reads books to us every night (Chronicles of Narnia right now) and a husband who always takes part in bathing and putting the kids to bed not just helping but he is a part of everything.
I have never experienced my needs not being met, my husband works hard, in 12 years of marriage this fall, he has never not even one time called in sick for himself.  But he has stayed home and taken care of me, just last year when I was sick, and he also took is vacation when Dana had her babies 3 months early, so that I could be by her side.  
He has given up his free time to be a little league coach, for our sons football team.  He has built squirrel houses and chicken coops taking double the time just so the kids could be a part of it.
He never complains, even when I let laundry pile up or when I do laundry but the clean pile, piles up too.  Even when he is working outside and it is over 100 degree's he still never complains.  He actually gets up almost every morning sing, sometimes he sings some country song from the radio but my favorite is when he makes up songs, he is just a very happy person. He thanks me for each and every meal.  He has never under estimated the work I do he proclaims it hard work and gives me credit.
I guess at times I forget that not all wives have husbands who kiss them before they leave the house or that the first thing they do when they get home is to kiss and hug them again.  And even when we watch tv, he holds my hand.
I don't ever want to forget,  that God has given me such a wonderful husband.  I am truly blessed beyond measure.  I am thankful.


We are THAT Family said...

Oh, you totally me me cry! I was saying, "me, too, me, too" and you're right-so many can't say that!

My hubby has been reading Chronicles of Narnia-all of them to my kids for months now!

My husband teaches our kids to say Butt-faced wombat with the proper accent...LOL. (See recent post on shameless self-promotion.) HAHAHAA

I love your honoring your hubby like that...I feel the same way. When I am pregnant and sick and tired, he is everything to everyone. (Except our savior of course!)

His leadership in this family is priceless and the freedom he gives all of us is a treasure.

I Wub him.

Our marriage has survived mainly because he appreciates my sarcasm and because neither one of us wants to do this alone! LOL

Becky, the MAID.
Oh, and you asked for photos of my crew...all 9 of us...thanks for asking, I was given the opportunity to blog as long as our sweet faces never reached cyberspace. :) (Hubby's rules.)

You can ask The Buller Crew...though...she has seen us and would say we are kinda cute. LOL

Woo hoo to Happy Daddy for taking such good care of my sweet little sister/niece!! And especially for taking off work when I needed Happy Mommy more than he did.

Gosh, you are so right. As I was reading I was thinking Thank you Jesus for my hubs who does so much of the same. In fact God was dealing with me this morning about serving my husband more (which means waking up when he wakes up whihc is gonna be hard, let me tell you!) but he is so good to me and I forget that so easily. Thanks for reminding me!

Come by sometime

What a beautiful post, and what a fantastic husband. You are very blessed indeed.

Your husband sounds much like mine... which means he is a BIG FAT WINNER in my book. :)

Rhea said...

Not only do I now hate you because you have a wonderful husband, but also because you recognize and appreciate it!! Just kidding.

What a wonderful, sweet, loving post. Now we need a list of all the little things that drive you nuts about him. Surely he leaves his dirty laundry on the floor or hairs in the sink, toilet up? Throw me a bone here!!

Steph said...

Thank you for sharing that post. I am telling you sometimes I feel guilty because I don't see very many marriages as happy as mine is, or very many husbands as wonderful as mine is...I too, posted about how blessed I am. I could have added so much of YOUR post to mine!!!

Here's the post I wrote:

Additionally Congrats (so very much) on your weight loss! :)

Kate said...

Wow, that post is fantastic!You are such a blessed woman, and your perspective is so right.

Our husbands sound very similar. It makes me so thankful I get to be the wife of this man God has given! Thank you for sharing your beautiful words.
