Of course every person has flaws, and every couple argues, but I am completely smitten with my hubby, nonetheless.
There are so many loveable things about him that I could not possibly go into them all in depth, but notably, there are some things that make him adorable, and others that fill me with gratitude for his presence in my life.
My hubby is side splitting funny.
I saw this sign once that said, "You make me laugh so hard tears roll down my legs." It has happened, people. Just sayin'.
He is punny (not puny, pun-ny). We are constantly making lame childish puns, but for some reason they are the funniest things anyone has ever said up until that moment. To us, at least.
He butchers popular songs by doing one of two things, either he makes up stupid-funny lyrics that rhyme with the original lyrics, or he sings something completely random and made up to the rhythm. We have all sorts of songs that we now sing completely different. "Remembering the girl, leaves me down and lonely" became "Remembering the girl eating macaroni".
We are completely comfortable being nerds together. We actually became friends over crossword puzzles! So on road trips, one of us will drive while the other one reads out the hints for the puzzle.
He is an ebook/documentary/online lesson hoarder. He only buys them and downloads them, and then they sit on his computer forever without being read or watched, haha!
Whoo! The gratitude for this man is great.
He has good every day things that make me thankful for him, like:
- His work ethic (he busts his hiney for our family)
- His fervor for God's Word
- His leadership skills, both at work and at home
- His motivational speeches- he always makes you feel like you CAN do something, no matter how dire the situation looks
- His faithfulness to me, and the way he protects me and defends me
- He is an amazing and loving father
Like the fact that he fell in love with me when I was hugely pregnant, and a single mother. Like the fact that he experienced love at first sight for me, even though he never believed in that silly emotional stuff. Like the fact that he came into my life and raised my two children alongside me, with no questions, no doubts, no holding back. Like the fact that he later adopted my children as his own because their biological father was never a part of their lives. Like the fact that our mutually biological daughter is the light of his life.
Every day I am grateful for these things. I had given up on finding the right person to complete my life, but this man that God gave me has given me more than I believed was possible. My love for him is greater than I believe I even have the capacity for, he exceeds the boundaries I had set for myself. And I can trust him with that love.
Simply put, my husband is awesome.
