Mr. Amazing

I am married to the most perfect man in the world! Not only does he provide for his growing family by putting in 70 hours a week at a thankless job (you like that, My Love?!) , but he also does more around the house than I ever request of him to do. he takes out the trash. He fixed the dryer, saving us the expense of a knew one. He fixed the vacuum without needing to be told (he even uses it on a semi-regular basis when I fall behind). He cuts and splits all our wood for the winter. He jerry-rigged a cleaning device for the dish so I could watch American Idol while it was snowing (our dish is on the roof, much out of my reach). He detailed the interior of our minivan, and might I say he did a fantastic job. I haven't found one spare goldfish cracker since. He cleans up after all the animals in the house even those of a humanoid nature. When he is home I never have to change a poopy Pamper.

I could spend hours listing all the handyman work he does around and in the house but I digress. The most important reason that My Love is the most perfect man in the world is because he makes me feel as if I am the most perfect woman in the world. He feeds me an endless melody of compliments and I love yous, and even though he is dog-tired at the end of the day he makes sure I get a break from the kids. Even if it is only for five minutes. When ever we go out he opens doors for me, pulls out my chair, and escorts me to my side of the car. He is protective and chivalrous and has never said one negative thing about me or to me (that I can remember). I am the most important person in his life and that is what I love about him most.

Now he has started talking about opening his own business, which makes me nervous. Even though his job is thankless, it does provide benefits and a steady paycheck. However, he has every confidence in the world that he could be successful on his own and I have every confidence in him that he can do whatever he puts his mind to. After all, if you can fix household appliances without using the instruction manuals then you can do anything! I think I'll be doing my part by praying like crazy.
