This would have made a good entry for Valentine’s… but since I only had time to view Dee’s tag the other day (been busy lately), it’s as good as a post-Valentine entry…
Thanks, Dee, for the tag.
This is about why I love my husband.
It’s actually an easy and a difficult question for me. Easy, since there are a lot of things, small and big, that I can list down as to why I love him. Difficult, because all these things put together still doesn’t seem to be enough to quantify what makes me really love him. Because it’s not all about just these things, it something more which I can’t quite really capture in words.
For someone I have known for twenty-six years (since grade three), and someone I have romantically been with for nine years before marriage, and someone I have binded myself to in matrimony for eight years, all the good and bad moments together have made the definition of love transform through the years in a deeper meaning. It’s not all about the feeling and the companionship, but it all translates to commitment.
I love him because he brings out the best and the worst in me, making me learn and realize things about myself I wouldn’t have without his honesty. I love him because he has been my best friend ever since. I love him because despite what he is going through, he is still always considerate and thoughtful about how me and our kids are doing. I love him because he is such an excellent father (and would be an even better mother than me) to our kids. I love him because he is a great husband in so many ways. I love him because he always ensures that he gives us the time we need with him despite how busy his work is.
I love how he stands by his principles. I love his passion, his enthusiasm, his positivity and his love for life. I love how he keeps his word. I love that he knows his priorities. I love how he is committed to be of service for HIM and our spiritual community. I love his thoughtfulness, his dedication and his funny-sweetness. I love his child-like mischievousness and naughtiness.
And after all things said and unsaid, I love him simply because I DO.
Now, I’d like to tag all of you reading this as I’d like to know why you love your husband (or your wife)…
