Thirteen Things I Love About My Husband

  1. His passion for God.
  2. His insistence that I'm beautiful, even at moments when I'm obviously not.
  3. His ability to fix anything that's wrong with the computer.
  4. His love of nature.
  5. He is the sweetest and nicest person I know.
  6. He can't keep a secret from me (it at least drives him nuts to try).
  7. His willingness, yea even eagerness, to take me to all of the living history and cultural stuff I enjoy.
  8. His excellence in the field of "daddying." There's nothing he won't do.
  9. His desire to rear our children to be the kind of men and women that will be pleasing to God, and the energy he expends to back up that desire with action.
  10. How well his genes mix with mine (as in, I think our children are beautiful - I know, I'm shameless. I can't help it.)
  11. He puts up with me. I'm telling you, he ought to get an award for that, especially when I'm pregnant (no, I'm not right now).
  12. His faithfulness to provide for our family even when he's feeling terrible. I appreciate it so much.
  13. He improves with age. Not that he's old. He just gets better and better all the time at all of the wonderful things he does.

This is my beloved and this is my friend.

And anyone that is married and reading this can now consider themselves tagged.

Okay, now I'm embarrassed.

I invited a few people this morning to visit your blog, not knowing you had written this.

If anyone visited my wife's blog this morning after my invitation, I didn't know about this. It really wasn't intended as a shameless plug!

I love you, babe.

What a delightful post! I am feeling like the old lady in the group--I have been wth my husband for 22 1/2 years. We have survived the challenging two's with Irish Twins for that matter and now are laughing our way through teenage hood.

13 things I love about my husband--He is my calm after the storm and keeps me laughing.

I never imagined what a strong team we would become. I still kinda like this guy :)

Have a great day everyone.

Thanks for visiting Pamela, and for sharing. My husband and I both love teenagers and are looking forward to that stage. But we're trying to suck all the marrow out of each stage of life between here and there first. :^)
