My Husband Rocks

Before I start telling you all about the wonderful hubby, you should all know that Katy Lin is having a contest this week in honor of her 1 year anniversary :) You should go check it out!
Ok, now then, *ahem*, I've been thinking this past week a lot about the ways in which Josh takes care of me. He wants to make sure that I'm ok, and that I have everything that I need. It's been difficult for him to be away for so long (not just because he misses the small tornadoespuppies), but because it's hard for him to not be here to take care of me. Every time I talk to him he asks about the puppies and he asks about the house. At one point, I commented that if the puppies die, or if the roof blows off, I would probably tell him. He responded with, "I know, but I'm not there to take care of things, you're all alone, and I want to make sure that everything is ok." It struck me then that he didn't check on these things daily only because he was actually worried about them, but because he was worried about me. He's so awesome at fixing anything and everything that goes wrong, not because he has to, not because it's "his job", but because he wants to take care of me.
Also, my hubby rocks because he'll be back in town tonight! YAY!!!
The End.


On a totally unrelated note, I'm a guest blogger today! Pop over to Blog Around the World to check out my awesomeness :D

Came over from BATW. I love the bag, and your tutorial is so well done, even *I* should be able to make it!

My poor, lonely sewing machine is relegated to hemming pants most of the time. And I'm pretty short, so it must be sick of pants by now...

Yay for your husband coming home tonight! Enjoy your husband!!!

I'm going to BATW now to check out your guest post.

Your husband does rock...indeed...'cause he was smart enough to marry you!

No blogging this weekend...no Twittering...no rereading Twilight! (Admit it--we all do it!) You are a newlywed, with a homecoming husband. Have fun!

Lauren - I left a comment for you over on BATW, but I loved the purses. In my mind, I imagine myself to be crafty and SEW SEW good at sewing. But I can't figure out how to thread my bobbin. ;)

Maybe a tutorial is in order???

I had no idea The Princess Bride was a real book (I just thought it was a book being read in the movie to a cute little Fred Savage). BUT NOW!! I can't wait to read it.

Thanks!

Ren said...

that is a really sweet way for your husband to let you know that he loves you. we all have our "language of love" and as married folk, we just have to learn what way the other speaks (or be reminded of it in some cases...)
very, very sweet! and i am so very happy that you get to see josh tonight...those times apart can be long (my little bro just joined the air force and boot camp was a HUG challenge for my SIL alone with two little kiddos--but she's a trooper and she'll be just fine!)

Susie said...

Again...Congrats on your BATW feature. I love this post. He reminds me of my husband. I have never had someone so concerned about my well-being and general happiness as he is. Here, here for good men:-)

OMgosh....my mom DIGS owls. She's the only person I've ever known to, until now!

Yay you for hubby being back in town tonight! Celebrate!

Thanks for stopping by today!

This is so sweet! My hubby travels a lot for his job too. Is your hubby military? I can't remember. Anyway, he sounds like a great guy.

Loved your BATW post. I was so excited when I saw it was you. :)
