The Best Husband Award

I post all the time about my beautiful girls and all the fun things we do all the time. But I often neglect to tell everyone about my best friend who has made our home life so happy, my husband Robert. He really is my better half and we learn a lot from each other. I am grateful every day that I married him and we have a lot of fun together. These are some things about Robert that make him so great. These and so much more are all the reasons that I love him.

*He is a very happy person. I always said I am more moody than I would like to be and I really needed to find someone who is happy a lot. He is happy 95% of the time. I sometimes forget that he can have bad days too because he has such a good attitude.

*He sees life through rose colored glasses. He is optimistic about everything and life in general.

*He is an AWESOME father. I mean seriously great. He plays with his girls the second he gets home. He never leaves their raising up to me and I can't even count the diapers he has changed. They adore their Daddy, especially Lindsey. She is very disappointed on Monday when he is "at work" and can't get her out of bed. It seems I am the next best thing.

*He loves me unconditionally. Hard times and in my times of sickness, he has loved me through it all and always treated me with love and respect. I know he loves me more now than the day he married me.

*I always feel beautiful in his eyes. Fatter, skinnier, healthy or sick, I have always felt attractive and sexy to him and that is truly a great feeling!

*He LOVES to tease. I think part of the reason he fell for me is because I am very easy to tease. And he loves it! I have to admit that I sometimes can't take it and he knows when I am in that mood to not handle his teasing much. But he loves to tease and his family can attest to that.

*He can be really funny! He has a very different sense of humor, filled with lots of puns and we laugh a lot.

*He is very smart and ambitious. He is the same guy who says "Oh, I am worried I am going to get a bad grade because I didn't get to study much on this test" and walks away with an A and usually an A in the class. If I say I didn't do well on a test, it is usually true and if I work really hard in the class I still squeak by with barely a B. He has interests in investing, real estate, business, finance, etc. and he has a lot of plans and dreams.

*He really believes in me. He believes that what a set my mind to do, will be done and he is really excited about my dreams. I have never heard from a third party that he ever says anything bad about me and in fact I always hear how much he builds me up when I am not around. That really humbles me that he is so good to me.

*He loves the gospel. That attracted me to him from the start. He talked about his mission all the time and speaks about God and the gospel with so much love. He believes in the atonement of Christ with all his heart and has always been a missionary to others. He really tries to do what is right. In fact when I met him he told me he had never cursed on purpose. I honestly didn't believe him, I couldn't say the same about me and I just thought if I was around him long enough I would hear it. We met 7 1/2 years ago and I have never heard him swear. He not only tries to be as good as he can be, though he isn't perfect, but he is good to his word.

*He honestly loves people. Something that is really hard for him and makes him pretty angry is when other people are intentionally unkind to others.

*He really enjoys sports and loves it when I get into them with him. He really likes to play basketball and I am really happy that he is so active. He loves involving his kids in sports with him and likes to teach them how to play. Both girls learn early what "tackle" means.

*He is really cute and I think he is very hot and attractive. It is great when I can still get giggly and weak in the knees after almost 7 years of marriage.

I really love Robert and find new things all of the time that he is good at and that I love him for. I can really say I love him SO much more now than I did the day I married him. He has proven to me just how awesome marriage is. We have weathered life storms together, my sickness, pregnancies, sick kids, my own parents divorce, his family members with cancer, school stress, job stress, etc. etc. But through it all we have learned and learned more how to work together, how to grow and how much we love each other.
