I love my husband because

October 25th, 2003 · 6 Comments

…he cleaned out the bottom of the garbage can! I had noticed it needed cleaning for a while but I didn’t take the time or energy to do it myself. I confess I just left the icky stuff sticking there. But the other day Ted opened the can, noticed it needed doing and cleaned it out, reaching his arm down into the grime and slime. I am grateful! And of course, I have many other reasons to love my husband too…but his cleaning out the yucky bottom of the trash can does do something for my heart….and nose…:)

    David cleaned up the kitchen last night. It was beautiful to behold this morning, coming down to breakfast.

    He also took the children home from church today (playing referee to the opposing teams in the back seat), leaving me to some quiet moments in the car coming home. (We have to go in separate cars because he goes early for worship band practice).

    And yesterday when I went to the Farmer’s Market in the morning, he requested I please come home with some pretty flowers. 🙂

    I applaud your idea of posting husbandly praise! Affirmation does great things for relationships.

    I love you hubby because he comes home from work every day. Some who he works with go to the bar and have a few drinks after work before going home.

    I love my husband for many reasons. The least of which is because he remembers the little things like writing me love notes on the bathroom mirror every day and grabbling me as I go down the hall just to kiss me. I love my husband because he takes the time to remind me that I am loved.

    I luv my husband because God chose him for me. He used to ask me, quite often, why I loved him, I guess for reassurance, and I would always give him a reason. Lately I say just because. To assure him that it doesn’t matter what he says or does, I’ll always love him and be there beside him.
