In an effort to quell the wave of judgement I fear some folks might be inclined to reign down upon my husband after my last entry, he's a good guy. He just really, REALLY doesn't get Christianity, and that's not his fault. Remember, faith is a gift, and not everyone gets it right away.
So, to balance out the whining I just did (and help me remember why I love him), a list of why he's awesome.
He ALWAYS makes me laugh. Every day, there is some ridiculous thing he does or says or suggests that will solicit a giant, belly-quivering laugh out of me.
He's not afraid to make a fool of himself to get a laugh. In fact, he takes great pride in the lengths that he will go to get a giggle.
Laughter really is how our marriage thrives.
Really. Look at him. He's tall, dark and handsome, looks just as good in a suit as he does in his PJs, and he isn't super vain or worried about trying to keep himself looking good.
He just does it naturally.
I just love the dimples. Vincent's got them, too!
He's not afraid to try new things.
Even horseback riding at my request. Through a jungle and into the ocean. The poor boy's butt hurt, but he did it and he enjoyed it.
All because I thought it'd be fun.
He's a good dad!
It might've taken him some getting used to, but once he caught on to the whole "dad" thing, he went to town.
He gets up early with Vince, plays dress up, takes him to the park to play basketball, teaches him the ins and outs of various sports, disciplines and soothes like a pro.
He works hard to provide and always, always, always plans for Vincent's future.
He has great friends.
And yes, you really can learn a lot about a man by who he keeps company with.
That was one of the first traits I loved about John - his friends and his undying loyalty to them.
I'm so blessed to call these folks friends, too. Each one of them is amazing. <3
The list could seriously go on and on. John is a great man with amazing talents and drive. Sometimes we butt heads over the issue of religion and children, but he is my perfect match. I love him immensely and am appreciative of all the psychotic things he puts himself through for the good of our family.
Even if he sometimes thinks I'm out of my Christian-lovin' mind. :)

Gina, I've been catching up on your blog. I have so much to say, I don't know where to begin. St. Philomena has been my friend lately so I'm glad we have more mutual friends in heaven. So happy God took care of Vince's needs. And of course John is a great guy. He IS lucky to have you and vice versa --God knows what He's doing when He makes matches. And finally, I'm giving you three awards. Deets over here http://anabellehazard.blogspot.com/2014/01/move-over-golden-globe.html
