Dear Husband: It Is Your Selflessness That Humbles Me

Share the Love

Charli Penn-Watkins Writer Editor Blogger Media SpecialistDear Man,

Tonight even though I spent hours on the computer in the other room and ignoring you and the football you were watching, when you realized your were hungry and got up to make snack you still thought of me. And, you didn’t just make me any snack, you took the extra time to make sure it was a healthy one that wouldn’t steer me off my Weight Watchers plan for the weekend. You even made my dinner before your own. I sat here typing and tweaking away and you stood there making me a meal you know I’d need and want without me ever having to ask for it.

When you walked in here and sat it down in front of me and I smiled and just stared at you, I know you were wondering what I was thinking. Well, I was thinking about how amazing you can be in the moments when I’m being quite the opposite. I was thinking that I’ve been kind of bitch today and you still didn’t hold that against me – it’s almost like you forgot. You had to have chosen to remember the last good thing I’d done today instead of the bad to even be able to take the time away from the playoffs you did to make extra food for me. You always put me first, even when I don’t deserve it. I love you for that. I love that sometimes when you don’t have to do anything at all, you do everything. Sometimes… I don’t even think I can express how thankful I am. I might have sat her until 10pm without eating anything, but because you were thinking of me instead of just thinking of you, I didn’t have to worry at all. You’re amazing! Keep being the man you are and each day I can only continue to love you more. I hope you have fun tonight going out with the guys. You deserve that time and that balance in your life. Okay, enough for now. Be safe tonight!

Oh, and P.S.: Don’t think I didn’t notice that you folded the clothes I forgot to the other day. I would not have been able to get dressed so fast the next morning when I overslept for work if you hadn’t taken those extra ten minutes before you went to work to help me. You’re the best, babe!
