I gotta share my dear sweet hubby! On June 21st my mom had been visiting us (she lives an hour away in College Station, TX) for 3 weeks (a long visit by a mother in law for most husbands, I’m sure). That night I had to drive her to the emergency room with acute Pancreatitis. She was in hospital 5 days and it turned out she had a growth on her Pancreas which needed to be removed. It was finally done 2 months later (we had to get an expert and that took time). She was with us, and DH was a doll all around - even after 3 months living together…and we plan to build a larger home and move in together!
I took her home yesterday (9/17) and today I thought he was taking too long to get home, (he said he was stopping at Walmart to deposit his paycheck)…instead…after about a 10-hour work day (hard work), he surprises me by driving alllllllllll the way to College Station and getting her. I just called his cell phone at 9 pm and SHE answered!!!
He’s just the sweetest thing in the world. I can cite many more examples during our nearly 20 years of marriage.
People sometimes still think we are newlyweds. I firmly believe the best marriage is one where each one lives to serve the other…and each one believe he/she got better than they deserve. I certainly did!!!
We have no children, but as Elkanah said to Hanah in the Bible (before she was able to have children - and wanted them very badly)…(1 Samuel 1:8) he is better to me than 10 sons!!! And I love him dearly! I don’t even mind that he hates my knitting!
