Scrolling Saturdays – A Post From the Past

This post was sitting in my Drafts and I completely spaced it.

The idea behind Scrolling Saturdays is to post something from your archives, from when you perhaps had a smaller readership. My blog was just four months old at the time; this post I wrote two days after my husband’s birthday. It gleaned 24 comments at the time. Woot woot.

03 November, 2005 – “That Man”

I’m in a reflective mindset again. Whatever the reason, I can’t help but marvel at the fact that I have a wonderful husband. It was his birthday on Tuesday (tchoosday), and throughout this week, I have been reflectively contemplating him: his character, his strengths, his mannerisms. Him.

First and foremost, I’m grateful to his mother for raising him the way she did. I have a wonderful man at my side because of it.

I often wonder if most would pass by Bryan without a second glance, unaware of how remarkable he really is.

He has such strength of character and a strong resolution to always do the right thing. He’s smart. He’s funny, mostly without trying. He has been through a lot in his life, and in spite of it, has become a better person for it. He commands a quiet attention when he publicly speaks or teaches a group. He puts others’ needs first before his own and includes everyone. Despite his incessant teasing, he has a love for everyone and shows it in his actions. He is a natural-born mediator and is at his best when he is resolving concerns and situations. He has an incredible ability to draw others to him, and because of that, people confide in him a lot. He isn’t afraid to try something new, or take risks. He has a very sensitive (and kind) heart. He is by all means the definition of complete selflessness. He is always looking to improve his surroundings and is never short of a new well-thought-out idea. He was born to sell anything to anyone, and by his own admission could “sell ice cubes to Eskimos.” He loves me completely, for who I am and what I can become. He never tires to please me or make me feel wanted and appreciated. He really is the one person that understands me completely. He is my husband … and he has no idea how important he is.

  1. He sounds like an awesome dude. 🙂

  2. The testament of a woman in love. How cool is that?

  3. You are definitely very lucky to have found him…but by reading that I know I don’t have to tell you that! I only hope that one day I’ll be able to find someone who loves me as much as Bryan loves you!

  4. Nothing better in the world than the love of a wonderful spouse. I know it well myself.

  5. Jeez, I think 15 comments is tops for me and that’s probably because Mocha Momma gave me some linky love. Maybe my pretty picture of Malathionman scare everyone away. 🙂

  6. that is such a sweet and wonderful post! he is as lucky to have you as you are to have him!

  7. awwww!!! that’s so sweet.

  8. I think there is nothing more beautiful than a woman who builds up her man. Unfortunately, I hear so much man-bashing and it’s easy to cut down my husband in small ways.

    Thanks for reminding me of what a truly loving and supportive wife is!

  9. Your hubby sounds like a wonderful man. You are a lucky lady. And he is a lucky man that you recognize just how wonderful he is.
    Beautiful tribute!

  10. Aww….what a lovely post. You are both so lucky to have found each other 🙂

    Makes me want a Bryan. Just think, had you not needed a break from the island, you might never have met him!

  12. Such a loving entry. I hope to find someone one day I can write such beautiful things about and he feels the same way. 🙂

    Side note: Where have you been? Haven’t seen you around!

  13. What a testament to a loving marriage!! I think you’re both very lucky. 🙂

  14. There are many things I can blame “Scottish-ness” on for bits my mom has said or done. That one… your right. Not so much.
    Greatness?! Who?! Where?! 😉 No match there, sister. I can’t get all of the blogosphere to hang onto my every word like you can. THAT you can blame on your “Scottish-ness”! (and, of course, your all around kick ass personality!) 🙂

  15. Come over to my site and collect your award.

  16. What a sweet tribute to your husband.

  17. That was lovely, your husband sounds like such a great guy and wonderful partner. What a special post. Hope he read this!
