I always say that my husband and I have put our marriage before our kids. Not that together we don't have our children as a priority. It's just that we feel one of the best things we can do for our kids is to provide them with parents whose marriage is stable for them. After all, one day they'll be gone, and I want this marriage to still be going strong.
So, why am I prefacing with that in a post that's supposed to be about why my husband rocks? Because he's so good at keeping this going. Year after year, he continues to put my happiness above his own. Day after day he manages to make me feel cherished and loved. And on those days where he fails, as we all do, he's learned how to apologize and make things right.
It's my husband who helps me to remember to find balance between being a mom, and being everything else. It's my husband who sees when I'm becoming overwhelmed and will step in to help me. It's my husband who keeps me grounded and reminds me that I'm part of a team.
Thanks, Honey, I love you.
