I Love My Husband: Top Ten {Tuesday}

top ten list

When I went to the (in)courage party at Blissdom, they were giving away tons of free cards. I got a whole pack of Encouragement/Hope cards. And I also picked up 2 romantical-type cards for my husband. When I read the first one I got tears in my eyes and knew I wanted to give it to him for Valentine’s Day. It says something like, “Have I told you lately that you are a good man? Well, you are.” So, I listed 10 (yes, 10) reasons I love him…10 reasons he IS a good man. {I promise I didn’t do this just for a blog post!}

And because I don’t think it should stay on a card here are…


1. He gets Asa up every morning.

This started when Lydia was a baby. He’d get her up when I needed to nurse in the middle of the night. It was kind of like his “turn”. Now he gets Asa up in the mornings. And brings him straight into the bed and goes back to sleep. But still. At least I don’t have to hike up the stairs every day.

2. He cleans the shower.

The other day he said to me, “The shower is moldy.” And I said, “Hmm. I didn’t notice.” The next morning I got int he shower and realized why I didn’t notice–I don’t wear my contacts in the shower. And since I can’t see past the end of my nose, I wouldn’t notice if a swamp had set up in our shower! So, now he cleans the shower when it starts getting funky.

3. He lets me lay on the couch and put my feet on his lap when we’re watching TV.

What can I say? I like putting my feet up.

4. He is always thinking of our future.

My husband is the master of long-term goals. He thinks of so many strategies to sell-the-car-and-buy-this-then-sell-that-and-make-money-here. Then start-this-business-and-give-this-away. He never stops asking what will happen in 10 years if we do this today? He always has his eye on our kids’ college, our empty nest and retirement.

6. He lights up when he’s with the kids.


7. He works hard for our family.

He owns 2 businesses and can be seen regularly in front of a computer, driving around Atlanta, standing on a roof or fixing someone’s basement. He’s a hard worker.

8. He thinks my blog is famous.

He always says, “Why don’t you just go to some big company and ask them to put an ad on your site?! Why wouldn’t they want your traffic?!” {He’s nice. But naive.}

9. He tells me I’m beautiful.


10. He loves me.

Sometimes I look at the attitudes and yucky-ness inside of me and I’m just so thankful that he loves me.
