My Husband Rocks!

One of the reasons I love blogging is the networking of women who are like-minded. It is so easy for me to get caught up in browsing my favorite blogs, then browsing the blogs of the commenters of those blogs, etc, etc. There are so many godly, creative women out there that I would love to read, but I realize that if I am to keep my perspective (and any clean laundry), I have to limit myself. However, once in a while I find a new gem I can't do without.

Here's my progress today...first, my best friend, Kat, at A Quiet Life; from there, Sarah Mae at Like a Warm Cup of Coffee. Then, from there, I found Katy Lin at The Great Adventure. That's where I found the best Mr. Linky yet. Katy Lin has started "My Husband Rocks" Friday and I love the idea.

So, breaking from my Australian saga for today (much to my cousins' apparent delight!), I am hereby telling the world that My Husband Rocks! You may have seen him around here and not known it was my husband, but he is dB Rocks at Promise Sword.

My husband rocks because he is my hero. Whether it's fixing the van by himself instead of spending a gajillion dollars at the repair shop, or taking our son out for a while when I need a break, or installing my new oven (YAY!), he is just my hero. Not to mention when he comes to save the day when I'm an emotional wreck. He always knows when I'm at my limit, and speaks words of encouragement and love to help me make it through the day. He's come to my rescue countless times in the 13 years we've been married.

With Father's Day this Sunday, I've been thinking a lot about what a hero he is to our son. I just asked Kiddo who his hero was and he answered without hesitation, "You, Daddy, God." Hmm. Not sure I like that order, but still. My husband makes sure he takes time with him one on one every week, whether it's practicing baseball in the yard, playing video games on the couch, or planning a woodworking project. Even when his patience runs thin, he knows how much it means to our Kiddo to spend time with his Daddy. I don't know if I will stay his hero when he's a teenager, but I have a strong suspicion that his Daddy will never lose that honor.

In the coming weeks I'll share more reasons why my husband rocks, and if you'd like to get in on the kudos to your husband, head on over to Katy Lin's place. In the meantime, I'll continue on with my Aussie stories. Don't worry, they won't last forever!
