Why I Love My Husband

I love my husband because:

He is sweet and considerate.

He is smart.

He is funny.

He is thoughtful.

He is faithful.

He is loving.

He is good looking.

He is devoutly religious, but not stuffy.

He is talented.

He is humble about that talent.

He is kind.

He is concerned about the needs of the poor and marginalized.

He donates to charity, especially Catholic Relief Services.

He is a loving father.

He is tender.

He loves romantic movies especially the one we saw last night - About Time.

I love my husband because after we had the same fight last night that we have been having for 31 years, he got up this morning and cleaned up the kitchen, and then came over to me sitting on the couch and said he was sorry, even though the fight was (and usually is) all my fault.

I love my husband.  Just because.


  1. You got yourself a keeper, Paula!! :-)

  2. <3 this. I am so glad you love my brother! :-)

  3. What a sweet, special post....I'd say that you are both very blessed to have each other, both of you are wonderful people. xo

  4. A very sweet post. If we all focuses on the positive, our world would be a better place.

    I saw the previews for About Time, but we have not gone to the movies since we got our puppy.

    We are going tonight (cheap night for seniors) to see 12 Years A Slave

  5. This is so sweet. Make sure he sees it. :)

  6. Great post today Paula. You are a lucky woman.
