Hardworking Hubby

Alright, here's a little shout out to my hardworking hubby! I am so thankful that God gave me a husband who loves his family so much. Garr works extremely hard to take care of us - at work and at home. For example - this was a recent work weekend. Friday: 6:30am to 6:30 pm, overtime: 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm. Sat: 6:30 am - 6:30 pm. Sunday: 6:30 am - 6:30 pm, overtime: 9pm - 5 am. That's 47 hours in 3 days! Did he complain? No. He just goes and does what he needs to do. Does he come home and sit on the couch and expect to be waited on? No. (Although he definitely could!) He comes home and helps me with the kids - plays with them and helps them off to bed. He comes home and helps with the house - making dinner, running the vacuum, etc. He comes home and works out - keeping himself in shape so he can be a better husband/father/police officer. I love that my husband puts us first. It doesn't matter that he had a hard day - if I'm trying to make dinner and the baby is crying and the girls need help with whatever they're doing - he's always willing to help. I'm really thankful for him. He's awesome. God is so good to me.

I found your blog through the fultons and I am guessing you may live near us. My husband is a police officer in Anne Arundel County MD, what dept. does your husband work for. I completely agree with you the feeling of being blesses with the husband you have mine has the same crazy schedule too and yet he dosn't let it get to him he still comes home and is willing to help
