I Love My Spouse

I love my spouse - motivationrhondaI love my spouse.

It’s Saturday morning.  My husband’s alarm goes off early.

He’s worked hard all week, taking on more responsibilities than most can handle, but he never complains.  He shows up with excellence always.

I wake up to see all my clothes washed and folded on my dresser.  I pour myself a cup of coffee and make a light breakfast before I sit down to read and write in my journal.  I’m taking time for me.

Meanwhile, he’s taking time for us. He’s up early to get the yard work done before the sweltering heat of summer takes over for the day.  For the next two hours, he meticulously mows the lawn with the same precision he irons a shirt or makes our bed.  He doesn’t cut corners to finish quickly.  He always does his best.

I begin my morning workout as I see him out of the window working effortlessly and I feel an amazing sense gratitude for this man.  I don’t know how he does it. He always claims he’s on auto-pilot and just does what needs to be done.  He has discipline unlike anyone I know.

He’s kind and respectful, yet quiet and reserved.  He doesn’t worry about things the way I do.  He often shares that after serving in the military, he views things differently.  The small stuff most of worry about…it’s just stuff.

He tells me that all that matters at the end of the day is what happens in our house, yet he has a kindness and compassion for all people.  I see it by the way he treats others with respect.  I see it in how he will make a tired hostess at a restaurant laugh or the way he will hold the door open until the last person walks out.

He doesn’t try to impress anyone, but he believes in always showing up for his best.  Whether he’s putting gas in his car or attending church on Sunday, he will always present his best self.

He’s a man of few words.  But when he has something to say, we listen.  It’s insightful. There is so much wisdom in his thoughts.

He’s a father.  A loving father.  Our boys are his heart and soul.

He’s a husband.  A loving, understanding and giving husband.  I’m grateful he’s mine.

I love my spouse.
