My Husband Rocks!!

It’s been a while since I participated in Katy Lin’s “My Husband Rocks” adventure.  But… I just thought I’d say that, last time I did, my husband, who only sporadically reads my blog, did read it, and met me at the door with a huge hug and kiss and tears in his eyes, saying, “My wife rocks!”  He was really touched about me telling the world how great he is!!

First, list at least one thing your husband did or said in the past week that reminded you why you love him.

This is so easy!!  He didn’t freak out — when he totally could have, and maybe even should have — when I confessed I had a HUGE, GIGANTIC library fine, the biggest ever.  He just said, “Let’s finish paying it off — today — and get those two missing books back to the library ASAP, and maybe you shouldn’t go to the library for a while.”  I was totally crying, and I was afraid he’d be mad, and I should have known that he wouldn’t be, but still…  He was kind, and took care of the problem.  I was greatly relieved, and loved him all the more for dealing kindly with me.  He’s done that through the course of our marriage — has been kind to me, or merciful to me, when I completely did not deserve it.

And second, share a “Generous Wife Tip” – it can be on any subject – anything that you do or would like to do more often to make your husband feel loved and respected!

I had to learn this the hard way:  When Martin asks me to do something, I tell him, “Sure, Babe.”  I do that even if I think it’s going to be too hard, be completely impossible, difficult, an annoyance, mess up my schedule, whatever.  He’d so much rather I tell him yes first, then come back to him later if I’m not able to do it, then have me argue/protest/refuse on the outset.


About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.

  1. fess up about the library fine and lost books….come on, we wanna know. did you forget to take a big pile back? I am a huge library user. Glendale library was excellent, the one here has just about any book I want. Love it. So tell us, we are curious.

  2. I feel your pain about the library fines. I forgot a HUGE pile back when I was teaching because they got buried under stuff in my classroom. Two years later, I go to the library and it turns out I racked up a $70 fine! My dear husband was patient like yours. Aren’t we blessed?

  3. I lost one of my husband’s paychecks on the way to the bank and was totally crying and he said it wasn’t abig deal. Got the check stopped and then took it himself to the bank.

    Our husbands are awesome!
