Day 50
450. Write a description of your husband or wife

Ahhh.. my husband.  What a great topic to get to write about.

Let’s see.  How do I even began a description of my husband?  Words that jump into my head when I think of him are things like patience, supportive, irreplaceable, humorous and dependable.  Don’t get me wrong, no one is perfect.  He has his ways of driving me nuts sometimes, but I do think that he was brought into my life for a reason.  He calms me and completes me and I couldn’t imagine getting through life without him.  He is the first person I want to talk to when something good or bad happens during my day.  You often hear of people referring to their significant other as their “other half”.  Now that I have him in my life, I really understand what that means.  He makes me a better person in so many ways.  He is my very best friend.

Patience:  Let’s be honest…. someone that is able to deal with me and all of my OCD, ADD and anxiety issues has to have the patience of a saint.  Although he may not posses patience in many areas of his life, he definitely has them with me.  He understands all of my corks and issues and is able to roll with them instead of fighting to try and change me.  He does not get angry when we are two blocks from the house heading someplace and I don’t remember if I unplugged something, so I ask him to turn around and go back so I can check.  He allows me the need to be in control of “everything” when I need to be because he understands this is one of the few ways I can keep my mind at peace. He deals with my many compulsions, even those that don’t make any sense, and has a genuine way of knowing when to let me work through them myself and when he needs to step in to help me.

Supportive:  This man is the most supportive person I have ever had in my life.  He encourages me to do so much more then I would ever imagine I would be capable of doing.  I am sure that I would have never been able to change my career path in my mid-thirties if it was not for his support and encouragement.  He is ALWAYS telling me that I do not give myself enough credit and that I have a lot of skills that I don’t often see in myself.  Because of him I have become a much more confident person and now am learning to accept and appreciate my strengths instead of being afraid of them.

Irreplaceable:  When I think about any plans I have for the future I don’t imagine any of them without him by my side.  He truly is irreplaceable.  It is sometimes difficult to find people that you connect with on so many levels.  Him and I have so many of the same values and opinions on things.  And best off, we travel well together.  That may not seem like much, but to have someone in your life that likes to do the same things as you and who you get along with well enough to spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with is truly irreplaceable.  Did I mention he loves Disney too?  If I wasn’t convinced before, that would DEFINTELY make him irreplaceable.

Humorous:  He is the funniest person I know.  He makes me laugh all of the time.  Often to the point of tears streaming down my face.  The best part about his humor is when he is able to make me laugh when I am feeling my worst.

Dependable:  I can always be assured that he will be by my side when I need him.  In over 15 years I have never felt like I’ve had to go through anything alone.  I always can depend on him to take care of things or help me deal with things whenever a situation arises.  I trust that under any circumstance, he has my back and that makes me love him more everyday.
