My Husband Rocks!

I've recently become a follower of Kristin's blog. Every Friday she does a post titled, "My Husband Rocks," where she brags on her husband. It's very sweet. Well, I never like to pass up an opportunity to brag on my wonderful husband, so I decided to also do a post.

My husband rocks because he can do almost anything around the house. My dad is a very handy man. He's always doing some kind of project around the house and nothing is too hard for him to handle. When I would think about the kind of man I wanted to marry, I knew I wanted a man who is handy like my dad. It just simply had to be. Thankfully, the Lord blessed me with such a man.

Many of you may be friends with my husband on Facebook and notice that he often has posts about all the tasks he's accomplished each day. It's usually quite a list and makes me exhausted just thinking about it! I would like to take this opportunity to make it very clear to everyone that these tasks ARE NOT things that I have put on a "honey-do list." No, my husband is so wonderful that he sees the things that need to be done around the house and just does them. It's amazing.

He always says he has two speeds: Tasmanian Devil or Doing Nothing. When he gets set in that Tasmanian Devil speed, he goes to town!

We're currently spending some time in Texas visiting his family. We're staying at his Great Grandmother's house (she lives with us in Illinois, but she's glad to be back in her home for a while!). When we got here last night, we noticed several things that needed to be done around the house. In his usual manner, my husband was up early this morning getting things accomplished. He trimmed trees in the yard, put up some paneling in her kitchen, scrubbed the kitchen real well, washed the windows, fixed the carpet, rigged up a light or two, hauled out an old refrigerator, and rearranged things. I know I'm missing a few things to add to the list, but this will suffice to prove my point that he is just simply wonderful!

Like my dad, there isn't anything that my husband can't do. He is smart and knows how to fix nearly anything. He can rig up handy contraptions all around the house. He can clean like no other man I know!

If you can't tell, I admire my husband and I am very in love with him! He is fabulous, wonderful, amazing, and one-of-a-kind!
