This Is Why I Love My Husband

I've read a lot of blog posts, one spouse praising the other, and it's about time Ryan got his fair share of the glory. Ryan is an amazing man and a great husband. He is the kind of guy that will and does do anything for me and our family. There are so many great things about him, but I'm not sure that I'm ready to put them all down on paper- plus I wouldn't want any of you to be jealous! There is just one little experience that I'd like to share with you that gives you insight into just one reason that I love this man.

Last night I had to go down to the church to do some canning, and would be gone for about an hour. Before I left Ryan said to me that he was kinda glad that he'd have some time alone with the kids, since he hadn't seen them much this week. So I went and did my thing and when I got home I found Ryan sitting down one one of the little kids chairs, playing with the blocks with Kate and Clark. So why is this so significant? First, to see this big man on this little chair was amusing, second that he actually had the patience to sit there for so long and build something with them, but the best part of all was that he had built this pretty good size house with the blocks! I love that he could actually build something with the blocks, because all I can do is build towers! I love that his creative mind is always at work, even when he plays with the kids. He is so good at playing with the kids because he actually plays with them! I'm not creative or patient enough to sit down long enough to come up with something. I love him because he is in construction and it shows through in everything he does, of all the things he could build with blocks, he builds a house! I'm so proud of him for how hard he works at his job and what a blessing that is to our family- that he still has a job in construction at this bad time in the economy.

So I just had to put a shout out to the best husband in the world! I love you Rye.
