Next to loving and worshiping God, the second biggest call on my life is to love my husband well. He makes it an incredibly joyful thing to do.
So I dedicate my Friday’s Fave Five to sweet things, big and small, about my hubby. He’s the best!
1. Family man
He loves his family, my family, and our family. When we were dating, I watched how he treated his mother. I knew I’d get the same treatment some day. It’s been a great thing.
2. Fill ‘er up
He’s one of a dying breed who still likes to pump gas for his wife. And when Morgan is home, he’ll drive her truck at least once to make sure it’s running fine and to top off the tank. It’s a little thing to him, but a big thing to us.
We’ve always agreed that as long as it was financially possible, I would stay at home. So far, we’ve been blessed. I love playing housewife, and he loves having me home and happy. We never have the newest or biggest of anything, but nobody’s complaining.
4. Clean up
This one isn’t the most important, but, honestly, it says a lot: Jeff does dishes without being asked. When he’s in town, he is more likely than me to have the kitchen cleaned up shortly after supper. Who wouldn’t love that?
Our kids aren’t always thrilled about this one, but we’re affectionate (maybe one day they’ll appreciate it?). The last thing Jeff does before he leaves for work in the morning is give me a kiss (I may or may not have one eye open), and the first thing he does when he returns home is the same (when I’m far more awake).
It’s been an exciting 17 years with this man! I’ve been blessed to hang out with him so much, and I pray that God will give me many more years to stay and play at his side. There’s absolutely, positively, nobody else that I’d rather be living life beside.
