Jakesprinter’s theme for his Sunday Post this week is “Valuable” and I’ve held off posting what came immediately to mind. It’s still with me and it’s Tuesday already, so I’m going with it.
There absolutely isn’t anything in life more valuable to me than my husband. Ok, I can hear the groans, but we’re not soppy (well I might be tempted to be, but he most certainly is not). Please don’t tell him, or let him see this post. He’s a reserved kind of guy and would be highly embarassed. Who can blame him? The blogging wife must be a constant hazard.
I grumble and moan about his deficiencies, but in truth, most of the deficiencies are mine. He is my rock, and yet, my playmate too. We’ve weathered many a storm together, and no doubt will have to fend off more. I picture myself the great world traveller, and he, the anchor, dragging along reluctantly in the sand. Still, I cannot imagine my world without him.
When set free to roam, I am as happy as that sand boy. It is in my nature and I cannot change it. But I would never underestimate the value of the man who welcomes me home.
Thanks Jake, for giving me the opportunity to say this. I love your challenges. They make me think, and also appreciate what I have.
