I'm so not a person to ever say that to other people. He knows I love him, and I'm sure that you all know this too. (based on the fact that we are indeed married and made the choice to have a baby)
But I don't mean I love him a little bit. I mean, I LOVE this man.
I don't even know where to start. I can't imagine my life without him, he makes me happy. We laugh constantly. That's a huge deal because life is way too short to be unhappy.
One of my favorite sayings is "A day without laughter is a day wasted." So true. We laugh even when things are bad. And then it makes things not so bad.
In the past he has worked 2 or even 3 jobs to help me through school. I think he's a workaholic, but that's for another post. To make sure that I am able to be a stay at home mom, he will work many days from sunup to sundown, sometimes 7 days a week. He owns his own landscaping business, so this is physically demanding. He comes home exhausted, but proud of himself for a hard days work. I love it that he wants to provide for his family. I love it that no matter what happens, he WILL provide for us. I don't know how he does it, but he ALWAYS figures it out. Its like a gift that he has.
He loves our son- and that alone is reason to make me know I have a great husband. Not just a great husband, the best. He's such a good dad, and I have no idea where this came from, because he certainly didn't have a father that was any kind of role model. He's just a natural. He has never complained about getting up in the middle of the night, changing a dirty diaper (he gags and carries on, but no complaining). He is the primary caregiver for our son right now. Him and my grandma take turns watching him while I'm at work. And when Nana has Maverick, Christopher rushes right home to be with him. I love it that he wants to spend time with our son.
I'm a very lucky lady to have him- and he will probably never even see this, so I'm not just saying that :-)
