Happy Birthday to My Husband!

My dear husband is now over a quarter of a century. I wish that I got to celebrate more of his birthday with him, but I guess I will take advantage of the little time that I do get. In honor of his age, here is a list of things that I love about my husband.
  1. The laugh that comes out of him is the best sound and is very contagious. 
  2. He provides well for our family.
  3. He lets me tickle him even though I know he does not love being tickled.
  4. He knows where the hamper is and how to use it. I never have to pick up after him.
  5. He always opens the door for me. Always. 
  6. The grin that he has is the most adorable.
  7. He likes doing dishes.
  8. Getting a good deal is ok with him. He doesn't hate my pile of coupons. 
  9. He tries to be healthy and to make our family healthy.
  10. He runs with me and pushes me to go farther. 
  11. Nothing compromises that he is a man, but that doesn't keep him from being sensitive.
  12. He cares about helping others.
  13. He makes some awesome pancakes!
  14. He prays with me daily.
  15. When we go out to eat, he tips generously.
  16. He randomly does nice things for me. Like yesterday I asked him to pick me up something at the grocery store and he came home with roses. Sweet!
  17. There is this deep down love that he has for both his family and for my family.
  18. He doesn't say negative things about me to others.
  19. He is a hard worker...even if that means he works on his birthday.
  20. He thinks about me throughout his day and touches base to let me know he is thinking about me.
  21. He desires to grow spiritually.
  22. Researching to see what is the best is something he does well.
  23. He is the best nurse!
  24. He gives the best back rubs.
  25. He leads our family well.
  26. He loves me unconditionally! 
Happy Birthday, SM! 


  1. Happy Birthday to your husband and I really liked your list. You certainly did receive a gift from God in your husband, for many can not add their name to your list. Thank you for sharing your happy occasion with us here at: "Tell Me a Story."

    1. I really did receive a gift from God in my husband. I am very thankful for him!

  2. My husband is about twice your husband's age, and in the 28 years we've been together, some of what you listed fits into Dave, too. Here're the numbers: 2, 4, 5, 7, 11, 12, 13 [and a GREAT cook, overall], 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25, 26. Many of your others would fit him, too, but Dave is, overall, a fairly quiet guy. But it's a blessing to have loving husbands. Truly is. Expect you are a huge blessing to him, too.

    1. Sounds like you have a great husband! I had to go back to look at the numbers where our husbands are similar. Sounds like you have been blessed for the past 28 years!

  3. Aww, this is great!! Happy Birthday to him!

    Visiting from Thankful Thursday!


    1. Thanks, Tiffany! He gets to celebrate his last birthday celebration tomorrow!

  4. He sounds like quite a blessing in your life! I love that he always opens the door for you!

    Thanks for linking up on our Thankful Thursday link up this week!
