My husband is on my mind of late...
What a wonderful man he is. Oh how much I love my husband. Oh what a road we have traveled.
Falling in love, marriage, babies, houses, bills, jobs, extended families, church and all the in between daily happenings of two that became one.
Things started out so young, simple, uncomplicated, yet as all things do, they changed. Changes for the better and ever guided by God's loving hand according to his will and plan for our lives. Some changes were as planned, some were surprises, yet, others were unexpected, others....terribly difficult, and oh so painful. Yet, as we have continued to allow God's will for our lives, and learn to lean on HIM, and to trust in HIM only, we have seen bad change to good, pain change to healing, tears change to laughter, hurt and sorrow change to joy and peace and oh so much more.
As I always have, I stop from time to time, sometimes intentionally, other times its thrust upon me because of situations at that time, and think and reflect on things past and present. One of my problems with my version of OCD (seriously), is I constantly think about some things far more than is apparently normal (so I have been told by my doctor...LOL) Oh well, thinking is just one of those things I do allot of (my problem is I am STILL learning how to STOP obsessing on one thing or another...it's hard...very hard!). Especially when something gets dug in tight into my head, (thus this blog truly does help me to think and get things...OUT) lol. Anyway, I do have those times when, because of one thing or another, I get pulled into rethinking about an event or a past happening. The wondrous simplicities and complications that have culminated into our beautiful married life together hold deep within it many things upon which I do so adore re-thinking. At times however, re-thinking things is a necessary thing in order for me to learn where the mistakes occurred, what I can or must change, or just to see how my sweet Lord has carried us both through trials, storms, and happenings.
During this past week of share-a-thon, I worked such horribly long hours. Exhaustion cannot begin to fully describe how I felt at each days end. What made it all possible, besides my loving Lord was my wonderful husband. Loving, kind, supportive, encouraging, and so much more than time will allow for me to put into word. Monday, the beginning of share-a-thon was Valentine’s Day. He brought me 1 dozen red and white carnations to my work. Oh how precious and sweet!!! When I got home, I opened my front door (which when it is open you can see right through to my kitchen table FYI.) I opened the door to see 1 dozen peach roses in a vase on the center of the table, to which I next noticed, the table was so prettily set. He came and greeted me with a kiss, led me to my seat at the table, and brought me a wonderful homemade Italian dinner. YUP, that' right folks...my hubby can cook...and it's amazing to boot!!! We had a wonderful evening together. I came home Tuesday night after share-a-thon to see sitting on the table as I walked through the door...Homemade Mandarin Orange Ginger Chicken (Chinese cuisine). Yup...he made the entire thing from scratch. It was fabulous!!! This was how my darling met me each night when I returned home from my 12 hour day at the share-a-thon. This and so much more. He took care of everything...for me. When I told him that he did not have to do all that, his response was this....
"I know what it is like to work long hard hours, and come home to a wonderful meal sitting ready on the table for me! I know how much it helps, and how good it feels to know that someone who loves you has taken such time to prepare a good meal for you to sit and enjoy and just relax after a long hard day! You have done this for me and so much more all our married lives, it was my pleasure to take care of you baby!"
My big, burly, rugged, manly man of a husband, cooked wondrous meals, helped tend all the laundry, and picked up things and helped clean everything. He alone insisted on cleaning up the kitchen each night when dinner was finished! I DO NOT TAKE ANY OF THIS FOR GRANTED!!!! I AM BEYOND BLESSED TO HAVE SUCH A MAN AS MY HUSBAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He has always been the kind of man that when our lives called for me to work a public job, he said it was only right if we were both working then we should both tend to everything at home!
OH how I adore my kind, considerate, understanding, gentle, loving, funny, humorous, handsome, good cooking and good looking husband! Gift from God is what Bob is!
My husband is what is on my mind of late!
How blessed I am!
Grateful, am I, as well!
Blessed, by God's hand and His plan for me!
Thankful, I shall ever be for this gwondrous gift in my life named....Bob!
Words will never be written that can share what is contained deep with my heart and soul about my feelings, which are deep, vast and immeasurable, concerning my love, adoration, and appreciation of and for my darling husband. Friend, mate, lover, father, my every heartbeat. When my Lord decides it is time, and should he ever be taken from me, I most surely would cease to exist! I would only meagerly survive till heaven I would go, and be once again at his side.
My Husband is on my mind of late!
OH how I love this man of mine!
Have A Peachy Keen Day!
Love & Prayers,
