the man of the house
Monday, January 31, 2011 by {darlene}

One cannot own a home that is circa 180 years old unless there is at least one handy member of the family.
I am not that person.

My wonderful hubby, however, IS!! Three cheers!

But this post is not about how he humors my love for decorating, or how he tackles projects, or how he helps me rearrange furniture or how he indulges my must-have purchases for our home {within reason. wink}.

This post is about the more important things.
Meet the Man of the House:

He is handsome.
He is kind.
He is generous. so generous.
He is filled with compassion that simply translates to action.
He is not a man of lots of words…
But what he says is wise.
He shows his love through acts of service.
He knows all kinds of mathematical equations off of the top of his head; which I think is cool.
He is an amazing father. The kind who comes home from work to play with his kids, never with the TV remote or the newspaper.
And if I am busy with something, he asks me “What can I do for you, baby?”
He loves the Lord, and is unswerving in his faith.
He has the highest standard of moral code. Never cheating. Never compromising.
He is loyal.
He has the best laugh. And it is one of my favorite sounds in the world.
He has “smiling” eyes.
He is ever faithful in prayer. If he tells you he will be praying for you, he will.
He has the kind of work-ethic that this country was built on.
He is witty.
with my man,
What you see is what you get. A devoted, loving father who puts God and us first and works hard and laughs hard.
Just ask anyone who knows him.

God gave me this amazing man, despite myself. And every day with him is a day that I am further blessed.

Happy Birthday, honey. I love you. Toujours.
