My husband likes to share with our friends that he spoils me. I'm not arguing, because he does. He does so many things for me that are wonderful. Like always keeping the car full of gas. In fact, since we've been married I think I've only made one or maybe two trips to the gas station. He does most of the yard work, takes out the trash, and a few months ago when I pulled some of the hair out of my head from frustration he took over the laundry. He loves to go shopping with me and seems to enjoy our time together. We laugh together about a lot of things. That's probably one of the best aspects of our marriage, the silly things we laugh about. Just a few days ago I was working in my office. I had papers scattered across my desk, and was trying to make sense of research I've been doing for my latest work in progress. Completely focused on what I was doing, I heard a little voice from the living room. "Honey, do you know it's lunch time? I'm hungry." Okay sweetheart let me drop everything and rush right out to the kitchen. Wait a minute. I'm spoiled?

That's funny! Well, it does sound like you have a wonderful hubby, even if he does get hungry from time to time.
P.S. Did you happen to see your blog mentioned on my blog the other day? I finally got around to sharing about the award. Thanks again, so much:)

I have a very thoughtful husband, too. He's taken over extra household tasks now that he's retired, including making many meals. It's nice to know he's self-sufficient when I happen to be immersed in my writing and forget mealtimes. The truth is, though, that I think he actually likes doing such things. He even bakes a better pie than I do!

Carol, aren't we blessed? So many times when we are at dinner with friends, I will lean over to one of my girlfriends and whisper, "isn't he just the cutest thing?" They always look at me funny, "do you mean YOUR husband?" Of course I do!!!!!
Hugs and blessings,
