What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
I don’t often blog about Kevin, even though I love him with all my heart. We’ve been together 20 years and our wedding anniversary is coming up on 19 years. I jokingly always mention the fact that he makes the coffee, and it’s true. He makes it every night and every morning he goes in and pours me a cup and puts Splenda and half and half in it and brings it to me. I am very spoiled, because the man doesn’t even drink coffee himself.
My husband isn’t perfect, but he’s a great man. Most people really like him, he has a quick wit and he is kind. He’s not gregarious in the way I am, and he is probably a lot nicer in many ways. He was raised by a strong and wonderful woman who clearly taught him how to love and respect a woman.
Kevin is a numbers guy, an accountant and he likes things orderly, and I know living with 3 hormonal women often throws him for a loop. We try to be gentle, but we are emotional. I’m sure he’s thankful for Nick and a bit of testosterone in our home.
Kevin is not a yard guy, or a fix it man, but that’s ok, he does what he can and he hires out the rest……..thank goodness!
I’m a firm believer in keeping your love and marriage alive and fresh. It’s easy to get caught up in raising your kids and losing touch with the person you began with. We don’t have to spend a lot of money or time away to get that closeness, it can be the occasional date night or dessert out. It can be snuggling when the late news is on, catching each other up on our days before falling asleep. We make that time to stay in touch……..and to appreciate each other.
So if you have a significant other in your life, give that person a hug…………and tell me what keeps you loving that person.
Have a wonderful day……..I’m pouring another cup of coffee!
