10 Reasons why I love my Hubby

Yes you read that right.
I was laying in bed last night and this is the post that came to me.
Now some of these might seem silly but they are all a part of the reason I love him.
I also want to mention there is a lot more reasons these are just 10 of them.
Also they are in no particular order.

1. His extreme, generous, caring nature.
He is always there to help someone out, always there to lend a hand, and always there to give that little extra.
He is always paying for something or other, (ie. suppers for friends when they go out to eat, or when he visits his parents and brother, the meal is always on him.)

2. His sense of humor.
He always can make me smile and laugh. Even when I am furious about something he did he still can manage to make me laugh and relax.
I appreciate this is him so much.

3. His strong shoulders.
I mean this both literally and figuratively.
I always feel like he will protect me from anything. As well as he takes so much on his own shoulders. ie: he is THE bread earner.

4. His ability to teach me.
He has taught me so much. How to be a wife, how to be a cook, (sorry honey for the stew, meatloaf, etc as I was learning how to make a decent meal for you. ), how to tow and set up our trailer by myself, how to have patience.
Just last night he was teaching me how to change to taps in our bathroom, complete with new pipes. :)

5. His incredible handsome blue eyes and beautiful smile.
I love looking into his eyes and seeing him smile. :) He always manages to melt my heart.

6. His ability to teach himself.
He might grump a bit but if something needs doing he does it. He re wires, he fixes, he jerry rigs until it works great!

7. He is warm.
I mean really warm! I am always freezing and he comes and cuddles and warms me right up. Often times I am not even aware I was that cold until he comes along. :)

8. His adventurous outdoorsy try a lot of things once personality.
He has helped me overcome a lot of my fears. He loves to snowmobile, quad, camp, fish, etc...
We are often out together with just us two or the family enjoying being outside.

9. His childlike behaviour.
He has no problem encouraging the children to try something. When the kids were small, he often engaged in water fights with them or nerf gun wars.

10. He is an amazing Dad!!
He is always there when they need him. For whatever they need. When our son had his thumb crushed at work 2 years ago, he flew home early so he could go to the specialist with me. He backs me up when I am disciplining them. He is there to comfort them when something is wrong. Pull them out of the ditch, buy new work gear for them, listen to them when they need to talk, etc...

Some of these things have also been know to drive me crazy. However this is Rob. These make up a chunk of why he is such a great man. No matter what I would not trade him for anything at all.

  1. Aww, what a wonderful post. And how blessed you are to have such an amazing man in your life. I feel much the same about my own :) But sometimes we fail to tell them often enough...

    1. I agree Tiffany. It is such a blessing to have them. It is sad that we often fail to tell them just that. We love to be thanked so why wouldn't they. :)

  2. I love posts like this! You are truly blessed.

    1. Thank you Jennifer. I think so. :D
      God has blessed with a pretty great life. :)

  3. It was fun to read through your list- what a blessing a good man is!

    1. Yes it is a blessing to have a good man.
      I love to hear how others enjoy their men as well. It is sad how many do not. :(

  4. What a beautiful post!! I'm glad you've been blessed with such a wonderful husband and marriage. And thanks so much for coming to visit me! It was great to see you there.
