My husband chooses not to read my blog even though I have invited him to many times. He feels it is my place to say what I need to say and that if I have something to say to him I will directly.

As you will know if you have read my previous posts, I have been given the most wonderful man as my partner. I still don't know what I have done to deserve him, but how lucky am I to have found him.

The other day I read to him my post 'I Am Truly Blessed" and then read him one of the comments I received on it. He was astounded that 1. I had written about it and 2. that someone thought to comment on what he sees as something that anyone who loves someone would do. I love his humility - I mentioned names of others we know and asked him if he thought they would do what he did without a second thought. His answer was I suppose not, but to him to not do it would be foreign to who he is.

Other men I know including my boss wish that he was their partner - not because they are gay, but because they see in him things they wish they had in their lives. I wonder too if they strive to follow in his footsteps with those they love. I hope so.

It is not to say he has no faults, he is after all human, but this side of him is the one he shows to me most often and more so as we age. I also cherish him and so maybe that is some part of what I get back. But he had a wonderful role model in his father who also put his mother on a pedestal all his life.

He is sometimes so hard on others in the world and expects perfection as that is what he strives for, particularly in his working life, and yet he loves me with all my faults. He is so humble when I say thank you for his love.


  1. Hello beautiful
    You just gotta love that man... and... to watch the two of you together is to see poetry in motion...
    and... This is where it becomes about me...
    I ask, "How lucky am I?... to be a privileged witness to something that is beautiful and inspiring. oh... and... that's the bit about you...
    Love and enjoy you both.

  2. Hi, I was given a blog award, and with it I am to nominate 5 or more others. I know I don't comment much , but I have been following your blog for some months now and found all of your posts worthwhile reading and wish to nominate you for the Sisterhood Award.

    This is what you need to know:
    I have nominated you for a Sisterhood Award. It was given to me by someone who thought my blog was creative and inspirational. In return I got to nominate a minimum of 5 women whose blogs I find inspirational and encouraging.

    You can see the post at my blog at http://blogs.oddsocks.net. Now you get to share the award with other great bloggers. Here is how it works:

    1. Put the sisterhood award logo on your blog or post (found on my blog, just copy it and save it to your computer first)
    2. Nominate at least 5 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!
    3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
    4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.

    I've written specifically what inspires me about your blog in my post:


  3. Thank you Amanda for nominating me for an award. I feel a little overwhelmed that you have done so as I have never considered myself inspirational to others. I will put my thinking cap on and nominate some of the other inspirational blogging women I have met on the web in the next couple of days.
