Okay Ladies! It's time for you to give a shout out!


     I have an amazing husband! As I write this, he is upstairs giving Ruby her bath! He does bath time every night. He says he loves it because it is his special time with Ruby.I love listening to the two of them upstairs singing and playing together. There is nothing more precious than hearing the off key version of the Elmo's World song from the two of them followed by the loud "YAY!" when they are finished. The only time I do bath time at all is when he has to work late, has some house chores to do, or cooking dinner is going to take him a long time. That's right! HE COOKS DINNER!

     My husband is a tall, red haired, handsome, smart, loving, prayerful, supportive, Virginia Tech fanatic and a U of R fan. He works hard. He plays hard. He is fun and energetic. He is loyal and he is considerate. He is laid back and motivated. He is athletic and in shape. And Best of all... HE LOVES ME! 
     I decided to write this post tonight because I appreciate him sooo much and want him to know it. He may not be perfect,but he is perfect for me. He is EXACTLY what I prayed for when I prayed for a husband. I even have the Journal (somewhere) to prove it! God has blessed me and Ruby to have such an unbelievable person at the head of our household. He is an amazing provider for our family in every way. Thank you Ben. You are... as Ruby would say... "AWESOME!!!!"

     I know I am not the only lucky wife and Ruby is not the only lucky child out there. So, Ladies now is your chance to give your husband the SHOUT OUT he deserves. Tell me how your husband loves and supports you.Tell me the little things he does that make you feel special. Tell me all the GREAT things he does with your kids. Let's rejoice for each other about how blessed we are to have these men in out lives! Please share your stories!

Yep, My honey dates back to 1962 for our first date.
In June we will have been married for 42 years.(I'm not that old am I...was I 7 when we married?)
This past year has been a trial for both us, with my health issues and the economy.
He has, in the past, written a poem for me, surprised me with a video he had made for me, rubbed my aching feet and back endlessly and just been a good guy. There are too many things to list.
Any relationship that has lasted as long as ours has its ups and downs but I read somewehere that you enjoy the "ups" to the maximum because of survivng the "downs."
We have grown in our faith together, laughed, loved and cried together. He is my BEST FRIEND!Mom

What a wonderful posting, Jessica... I'm SO very happy for you and your family. I, too, have found the man I prayed for all my life, and even though I didn't meet him until I was 40, waiting for him was worth every day, and the time we have together now is so much more wonderful than I ever imagined. He understands me better than any other man I've ever known with the possible exception of my Dad. When we disagree, we never stay mad at each other for long, and we ALWAYS find a way to compromise, then come out of the disagreement even stronger than before. When I'm excited about something, he rejoices with me, when I'm sad, he knows when to leave me alone and when to just hold me, and when we worship together, I know that I'm spending my life with the man God made JUST FOR ME! Thank you for posting this, and for inviting us to share with you in shouting out for our men. WOO HOO!
