Gratituesday: A Loving Man


Today I am giving thanks for my wonderful Husband Jim!

He is in 2 words,


Not only is he handsome, he is a good worker with wonderful work ethics! He is the very best provider he can be to our family. He not only works hard at his job everyday, he comes home and works some more. He rarely sits still and must feel as if he has contributed enough to our family each day. He almost always cleans up after dinner, giving me the chance to just sit at the kitchen table and relax. (He actually gets upset when I clean up if he leaves the room for a minute.) He begs me to leave him laundry to fold, something to pick up, and doesn't allow me to mow the lawn, because it is HIS FAVORITE thing to do outside! He does most of the GRUNT gardening work, and NEVER complains! He helps do all the canning and gets upset if I do some of it while he is at work. He truly enjoys staying home with the children when I work on the weekends and I ALWAYS come home to a VERY picked up house and sparkeling kitchen! He Begs for me to make plans for myself or with a girlfriend so I can have ME TIME! AND, he tells me daily how much he appriciates all I do for our family! The only thing he wants each day in return is a smile on my face and to hear I had a good day.

Of course I could mush about him for many more paragraphs, but I think you get the picture.

I do know that I don't always treat him with the highest respect and for that I am sorry. Sometimes my past memories of my childhood take over and I loss control of my mouth and my words. Saying things that I don't really mean. I am sure we have all been there! BUT today I am letting the TRUE feeling fly! DON'T worry guys, I will BLESS my husband when he gets home tonight ;-) wink wink!

SOOO, everyone, tonight, tell your spouse how much you love them and that you appreciate them very much! They will LOVE hearing it!

Hey, this is a great sappy post! I love hearing wives brag about their husbands! It encourages me so much when wives work hard to encourage and build up their men! So, bring on the sap!! :)

Yes Laura, I agree, but it saddens me to hear about those husbands who do not GIVE to the family OUTSIDE of their "JOB"... this breaks my heart and makes me want to loan my hubby out!

I feel blessed by having a DH who works just as hard inside the home as outside. I always try to remember to tell DH, "thank you for going to work today for us" (family). When he gets home he jumps right in to help with eithre the home schooling or to keep our 4 year old twins "busy" (out of moms hair). Thanks for reminding us of these unsung heros today!

Blessings, Beth Ann
