Jumping on the “Blessed” Bandwagon

November 16, 2012

in the generous life

Debi of The Romantic Vineyard wrote a lovely post where she shared all the wonderful ways her husband blesses her ~ Confessions of a Blessed Wife. I just can’t resist jumping on this bandwagon. 

I am so blessed by my sweetie because ~

He believes the best of me.
He gives the most amazing hugs.
He is a true romantic (and doesn’t mind that I’m romance challenged).
He lives a life of integrity and by his example challenges me to be my best.
He’s totally hot.
He invites me into his adventures and is game to join mine.
He loves our kids and has a truckload of parenting wisdom.
He is the “big dog” at our house and helps me with Widget (who has mucho puppy playfulness). 
He talks more about his responsibilities than his rights. 
He stands for the truth, even when the truth is hard or makes him unpopular.
He makes the tastiest garlic cheese biscuits and tomato basil soup and …
He knows me very well … and still loves me.
He’s smart and curious and ever growing (which helps me be smart and curious and ever growing).
He thinks I’m beautiful.
He’s wicked funny. 
He walks what he talks. 
(I know I missed something, but you get the gist.) 

 I am so blessed! 

Feel free to hop on by adding your confessions as a comment to this post.

Lori – Thanks so much for linking to my post. I love your list of blessings from your husband. It has inspired me that I need to make my own.

Have a great weekend.

I am so blessed by my sweetie because ~
He helps me laugh at my most embarrassing moments
He is the voice of reason (when I forget we are on a budget)
He knows I’m crazy……and still loves me (and my family too)

Thank you Lori, for posting this. Sometimes I think I take him for granted.Occasionally I remind myself we are not promised tomorrow and everyday is a Blessing (like a daily gift from God).

Thanks for this post! Here’s my (short ’cause I need to get back to work) list:

1. He makes me tea. A lot.
2. He encourages me to be kinder and more forgiving.
3. He shows me so much more grace than I show myself.
4. He makes up ridiculous songs.
5. He likes to cook with me.
6. He snuggles really well.
7. He’s super excited to be a dad.

One correction – I KNOW you are beautiful. Deeply beautiful.

“The blessed bandwagon” – I LOVE it! My list is already at 65 so I’ll just give you the first 5 I wrote :):

1. He loves me exactly as I am…not for who I may one day become.

2. He’s honest with me and honest with himself.

3. He has more integrity in his pinky finger than most people I meet each day.

4. He rides horses with me even though it’s one of his least favorite things to do (because it’s one of my absolute favorite things to do).

Thanks for linking up with us, Lori! Keep adding to this list and join us again next Thursday. Would love to have you there! :)
