A group of bloggers has been posting these “Why I Love My Husband” posts for a while now, but I recently saw them. I wanted to get on board, and thought, “What better day to do it than on Valentine’s Day?” So here we go! If you’d like to join, click the button below!
Why I Love My Husband: Wow, if I were to make a list it would go on for miles. Seriously. But reason #32543573 why I love him was reiterated recently when our family came down with “the sickness” and, more specifically, I came down with it. I literally laid on the couch for days, getting up only to go to the bathroom and even then in complete misery. If it weren’t for my aching bladder and the lack of desire to have another mess to clean up, I’d have ignored it alltogether. Imagine for a moment what days of a non-functioning mom in a house full of kids must look like. I’ll give you a second. Wow, that’s a terrifying picture you came up with, isn’t it? Tell me about it.
Although he wasn’t feeling 100% himself- after being sick a few days before- he rose to the challenge of caring for our family and home. After a full day of work, he’d come home and make dinner, clean up dinner, get the kids ready for bed and put to bed, clean up the mess they made while he was gone all day, all the while asking if I needed anything and getting whatever it was I requested. I told him one of those nights that a DQ Blizzard sounded so good for my sore throat. He had a meeting to go to at church, but when he got home he had a blizzard for me! What a guy!
During that time I was sick, he not only did what was needed, but he took extra time to do some of the deep cleaning too. Honestly, with 4 kids and homeschooling, plus all the other things that come with caring for the home, the deep cleaning often gets pushed aside for ‘special days’. He cleaned our kitchen (like, really cleaned our kitchen) and it was fantastic. He’s always been the kind of guy who helps around the house with cleaning, (I love him for that!), but me being sick and seeing him put so much effort into it, leaving it better than he found it really made me love him even more.
