Three Things: I love about the Man of the House

Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways".  Unfortunately for me - and for the readers of this blog - Mrs Barrett Browning was far more poetic than I find myself to be.  However, I could come up with three simple reasons I love the Mr to share with all of you ...

His humor:  Don't all those surveys always tell us that the majority of women say what they want is a man who can make them laugh? Yep!  And most days the Man of the House can get a laugh out of me.  Is much of my laughter accompanied by rolling eyes and with a little groan?  Sure.  He's got that kind of sense of humor.  But it's still laughter.  Sometimes it bubbles up even when I don't want to laugh.  When I want to be grumpy, or mad, or when I want to just pout about something.  Somehow he can still manage to make me laugh despite my best efforts to be in a bad mood. 

2) His encouragement:  He believe in me, even when I have little to no faith in myself.  When I wanted to start an Elsy shop - he was right there telling me to go for it.  When I say I want to write - he tells me to just do it.  (and reminds me that what I do each week on this blog is, in fact, writing.)  While my mind tells me all the reasons I can't.  When  fear raises up to choke my dreams.  He is right there, pushing me past the excuses and cheering me on to take a leap of faith.

3) His physical attributes:  Call me shallow... but the Man of the House is just plain HOT.  And yes, I love that about him.  I don't know how he manages it, but he is somehow even better looking than he was 22 years ago when I married him!
