It’s a wonderful thing when your partner in life has so many qualities you wish you had. I believe that’s one of the keys to a happy marriage, because your respect for that person doesn’t falter, and when you respect someone, you tend not to take them for granted.
His ability to love runs deep and genuine. I put that down to his parents who are still together today and eloped and got married at 17 years old! He loves deeply and cherishes our marriage. I know for him, it’s one of the most important things in his life.
His quietly confident manner is re-assuring and comforting. Yet he is sensitive and therefore very intuitive of other people’s needs. He’s always learning, reading, listening, as a result he’s very smart and knowledgeable.
His kindness extends to anyone he encounters. His ability to always say the right thing to put someone at ease and make them feel comfortable is extraordinary. With this same ability, he can defuse a volatile situation instantly and create calm where once there was chaos. But he is passionate and passionate in his beliefs, yet open to rational discussion. He can talk about any subject matter without ever falling-out or making the other person feel inadequate, because he knows his own mind and he is his own man.
He supports everything I do in every way, and others too. Encouragement, help, assistance, a shoulder to lean on. We had a miscarriage 17 years ago, so we never got to meet our baby girl properly. We do enjoy our fur babies immensely. Here he is supporting our little guy, Rigsby, trying to help him overcome his fear of the pool. He never did overcome it, he just doesn’t like the pool!
He never holds grudges (me neither). Even if we have a disagreement (usually my fault) he instantly gets over it, and we move on. I couldn’t tell you what we last fought about or disagreed on. But I could tell you the last time he made me laugh, he does that often, at least once a day!
