My hubby ROCKS! Ode to Huatzin

I absolutely just love my husband. He is so precious and awesome. For many years I'd get so annoyed with him for not doing things the way "I" do things and not having the same level of enthusiasm for things that I felt were important. The Lord has showed me in so many ways what a good heart Huatzin has and how totally blessed I am to have him. He is truly my better half. Huatzin is so laid back and accepting which is why everyone loves him. He is fun, funny and adventurous. He is kind, thoughtful and considerate. He throws himself into whatever he does. This man is sweet. He has made the family breakfast the last month or so while I lazily sleep in to avoid the nausea. I'm not taking cereal here, but pancakes, eggs, bacon sausage. I never asked him, he just does it. I know I am called to be keeper of the home but it is so sweet that he is so considerate during this season of sickness.

He honestly, or at least tells me sincerely how beautiful he thinks I am, often. My dear husband still pines away after me. He has eyes for me and me alone and tries to spend time with me at every opportunity. I can trust that if I feel unattractive, or have a pity party over weight gain, or not having my hair braided, my husband tackles me and steals hugs kisses... I am on so many boards and groups where dear sisters have critical unloving or unaffectionate husbands that it causes me count my blessings. How often we take for granted such blessings. I love how he nurtures our little ones. He is more than happy to have the kids in our bed if they need to be, he wears our kiddos. I have met folks that had hubbies kick kids out of bed or weren't supportive of nursing as they felt in interfered with husband/wife relationship. That wouldn't work well for our kiddos. I am grateful for a DH that considers the needs of our family.

From coaching special needs people in Sports for Exceptional Athletes) to minstering to and encouraging neglected unsupervised neighborhood kids, to working so hard to provide for his family and his heart for adoption, I stand amazed. He has never had a father yet he is a great one. He hasn't even read the hundreds of parenting books that I have and I think he's actually better for it! ;-) He has never seen a good marraige and yet he is a great husband.

Anyway my super Husband got the kids airsoft guns for Christmas and bought tons of plywood and added hinges to them to make our yard to have many bunkers and to look like a battlefield. He then invited over families from our homeschooling group and ordered food for a BBQ. We had such a memorable time watching the dads and kids playing together and having such a blast. I have included photos, and will include more shortly. Now go give your hubby a huge kiss & tell him how much you appreciate him. Alida w4
