Rick Rocks ~ Because He Makes Me Feel Like I Do

Welcome to my first "My Husband Rocks" Friday post sponsored by Katy Lin @ The Great Adventure.

I can think of a million things about Rick that I love, but I am a little nervous to write this for fear I won't do him justice.

Encouragement, compassion, support .. those are my weak areas. You can ask my kids, you can ask Rick, they are just not natural gifts I have. I really have to work at them!

So it thrills me that Rick naturally has these qualities. And it thrills me even more that I receive the immense benefits of them daily!

I have often told people that I am a spoiled princess. Don't get me wrong, I work like a dog .. but not because Rick expects me too! In fact, he tells me often, and means it, that he wouldn't care if I took the entire day, every day, just for me, even if it meant sitting and relaxing all day! He makes me feel so loved, so special, and so pampered! Oh how lucky he is that he really didn't marry a woman who was content sitting in her robe all day eating bon bons watching Soaps. Some days I wish I was that woman.

But, this post isn't about me, but about Rick and how he makes me feel so loved and appreciated! Many days Rick asks me if I know how appreciated I am. How many husbands actually do that? He not only asks me, but makes so many tangible efforts to show me. Even last night, as we were laying in bed just talking, he told me how happy he was in our life and how he just couldn't live it without me. He makes me feel, truly feel, how important I am to him in his life. I am special to him!

And talk about being supportive and encouraging! I can't think of one hair-brained idea (and there have been many) that I have had that he hasn't jumped right behind me! In fact, it probably annoys him that I have so many ideas and then don't follow through on them. But I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that if I decided today to put all things aside and start writing that teen novel I've been thinking about for years, he'd move mountains to make sure I was able to accomplish it.

So today I want to say that Rick Rocks !!  because he always makes me feel like I do!!

I love you, Rick, and I can't wait for our date tonight!
