Thursday 13 - Reasons I Love My Husband

Esme's Mommy here.

In honor of his (1st) 39th birthday tomorrow, here are 13 reasons I love my husband.
  1. He is the best father in the world! Just ask Skateboarder Bebe!
  2. He’s generous. Never stingy, he gives when people ask. Not just financially, but with time and muscle and brains, too. He cares about people.
  3. He’s a problem-solver. Anything needs fixing – I know he can figure it out.
  4. He listens. I can talk for hours about my day or problems, and he is genuinely interested.
  5. He is a wide conversationalist. He’s interested in and can talk about just about any topic.
  6. He’s a leader. He can rally the ranks and get things accomplished. People naturally look to him for advice and direction.
  7. He’s strong. You’ll often see him carrying what it takes 4 people to carry on the other end!
  8. He’s active – always at the center of the basketball or volleyball games, and ready to organize rock climbing or other extreme sports and to share his love of them with others.
  9. He’s got drive that pushes him beyond normal limits.
  10. He loves cats (and doesn’t mind bunnies and dogs).
  11. He likes shopping and sleeping in, and he makes a hot curry.
  12. Just look at that photo!
  13. We love because God first loved us . . . Only through Him can love last a lifetime.

He sounds (and looks) fabulous! We are usually pretty good at complaining about our husbands, so it was really nice to read such a thoughtful post!

A guy who listens as you tell about your day, AND loves cats and bunnies, is definitely a keeper!
