Repeat of a previous post, to honour my husband for Father's Day - and as an entry into a contest at Time-Warp Wife.
Those of you who know me on Facebook are already familiar with me bragging on my husband and then ending with "My husband rocks!". I have also blogged about a great company, Union28, that celebrates marriage and communicates this message positively in fun and stylish ways (also where I got that catch-phrase).
And my husband does rock! To be perfectly honest, I think he is a better husband than I am a wife. Here are just a few of the rockin' things he does for me and our kids.
He works very hard to support me and the children so that I can be a stay at home mom.
He is also blessed to work as his own boss, so he is able to determine his own work hours and he has made it a priority to be home at a decent time so that we are able to eat dinner together as a family virtually every evening, despite our rather busy schedule.
He is always thinking of me and trying to do things to make life easier for me. He does 99% of our grocery shopping, as well as most of our trips to Costco and Walmart - and he always asks me which of the kids I want him to take with him, so I can have a break while he's gone. He virtually never goes anywhere without taking one or all 4 kids with him.
He makes breakfast for the kids every Sunday morning so I don't have to get up earlier in order to get ready for church on time. He also makes breakfast for the kids on the Saturdays that he's home so that I can sleep in.
He reads Bible stories to the kids and prays with them every evening. If he has hockey in the evening, he usually makes sure to still do this before he leaves.
Before bed, he often takes the time to just chat with the kids, or tease them, or tell them made up stories (they love this!).
He takes the kids out for one on one dates.
If he's not going to come home for lunch on a workday, he phones me to see how my day is going.
He compliments me on my looks.... a lot!
He makes it a priority for us to go on dates regularly.
He initiates us reading devotions and praying together before bed.
My husband rocks!
