    I didn't want to annoy those women who would like to clock their husbands for annoying behavior (I would have posted in their thread last week when mine was sick!) by bragging on my husband when their hubby is being a pill, but I just felt the need to sing mine's praises...

    He has done SO much for me over the last ten years of my life...he changed my world from black & white to full color and surround sound (he came with two beautiful girls). My life with him is all I ever dreamed my life would be.

    I missed horses SO much (I sold my most recent one the month before we met) and with that in mind he bought me the most darling little 5 year old Norwegian Fjord gelding. He rides, he drives, and he's as much fun as any other horse I've ever had - and he's become my beginner lesson horse!

    My husband and I bought 2.5 acres last May, and he built me a 3 stall barn! We had never built anything - ever - not even a shelf...but he built me the most perfect little pole barn (perfect for Florida), and has made my childhood dreams come true! Never did I think I'd have my own barn! Now, I'm teaching lessons and have started a riding academy that is doing SO well I had to hire another instructor! My website:

    Now, my perfect little barn is too small because we got another lesson horse to keep up with our today in 90F heat he has started on our fourth stall. I am SO grateful to him - and we have so much fun working on it and talking about where we were a year ago, where we are now, and where we're going from here.

    To top all this off, he "humored me" last year when I wanted 6 chickens on our little "farm" and built me our "playhouse" coop...then the inevitable happened and I wanted MORE chickens [​IMG] so he built me a bigger coop for 30 chickens and we had fun picking all the breeds we wanted!

    He is my joy and my heart's delight. He is my life and my love...and I can't wait for tomorrow with him!

    I wanted a cat, he got me two. I wanted more chicks, he got me 15, I wanted a duck, he got me 3. I wanted a goat, he got me two. He built three coops/stalls for the new animals for me too without saying a word. He says thank you every single time I cook a meal. He calls me the Laundry Fairy [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Its always good to hear true love stories. Nice to know that all the good ones aren't gay. lol Mine would do anything fo rme but he is annowying. It's the annoying remarks that he thinks is funny that get to me. But he is always there. All I have to do is mention something I owuld like done and he does it. He remodeled my chickens coop for me and evern added a few nice touches himself. He even puts up with me always wanting to hatch chicks. He is a good guy. After 28 years I think I just about have him trained.[​IMG]

    Quote:My husband was married once before...and I'll always be grateful to his ex-wife for her poor judgement! They met and married young and it didn't work for them - lucky me....and lucky you, too!!!!!

    I also agree with you that it is good to have perspective. If you've never known sadness, how can you really measure happiness??

    I'm so glad you're happy - your baby will know a blessed life!

    AWE! I love to hear praises for hubs! Mine is the BEST!!!! in 8 yrs he's picked me up from being homeless on the street (not a call girl or drugy or anything, just an abandoned teen) and taught me to trust, love, drive, work etc. I love him so much! I have 2 horses, 30 goats, 15 chickens, 4 cats and 3 dogs because he knows I love animals! He builds me barns, sheltars, fences, he even milks the goats for me and bottle feeds the babies almost everyday, because I'm too busy breastfeeding our infant and chasing our 3 yr old around lol

    I'm also VERY thankful for my husband...he treats me like a princess. Even though i act like a mean hag sometimes... [​IMG] He builds what i ask him to with no questions..cleans and cooks and does laundry. He's also my best friend! Theres not another guy like him alive..and i thank my lucky stars all the time for him!

    This is GREAT!!!! I love reading everyone's "good-husband-brags".

    I say to my friends at work (who do a lot of complaining!) that life is good - and it ALWAYS beats the alternative!
