A Tribute to My Husband

Today my husband deserves oh so much credit. In general he deserves more credit than he gets. Every day, without fail, he is in there pitching; without
complaint, and without being asked. He just does what has to be done -every
day.

Here is an example of something simple, but oh so very thoughtful. Since
the day we were married (which was quite awhile ago by now) he calls (or texts)
me at the end of each work day. He checks to see if he needs to stop for
anything (groceries or whatever) on the way home. This is thoughtfulness. Never
a complaint from him if there is an errand to run after his long day.

He is a good, kind, thoughtful man. Is it any wonder that I cherish and love him? He
doesn’t get huge glory days at work….he’s not a CEO or anything like that—that
bothers him sometimes. He feels as though he has let us down. He needn’t worry;
he is a true champion of a man. He is an amazing engineer and an awesome
husband and dad. He always listens, always supports, a shoulder to lean on and
someone to laugh with or cry with…..and he deserves WAY more credit than he
gets.

I’m so glad it is Friday and that we will have time with him this weekend.

    What a very thoughtful post! I loved the picture too.

    I’d a similar post earlier this year – love is so much more than jewelry or a car with a bow on it.

    Sending hugs, hurrays, and hallelujahs!! God bless you both abundantly–love, sis Caddo

    • Kate Kresse says:

      Aw thanks so much. I know God will bless you abundantly this day. Your prayers, support, love and writings lift my heart and warm it….your kindness and friendship give me strength.

      • Caddo Veil says:

        That’s what I’m here for, Sis! You were my cheerleader, when I first came to the blog neighborhood–so, when you get tired, just hand me the baton and I’ll run for awhile (slow, but sure), then we’ll trade off again. How’s that for a “deal”?!!

  5. Linda Kitts says:

    Kate and Jim, I simply LOVE this post! I am so very happy for you – that despite the twists and turns of life, and how we sometimes think that things are not happening that we’d like, or that maybe we’ve let someone down…the love you guys share is THE most important! How lucky Jim is to have a wonderful wife who sees that! How lucky Kate is to have a wonderful husband who thinks enough of her to do “the little things” (like call or text every day) – that are huge and means so much. I smile and feel lucky to know this kind of love is “out there” – and so happy it is yours!! I love you all!

  6. Butch Dean says:

    Enjoy your time together…God bless both of you.
