Tribute Tuesday has arrived. Thank you in advance for all who participate. I am excited to visit your blogs read your contributions.
For this inaugural Tribute Tuesday I'd like to give tribute to my husband The Calm One. There is a very good reason he's called The Calm One. It's takes quite a lot for him to get bent out of shape and God knew exactly what He was doing when He put us together. He balances out my frenetic mindset and boy do I need that!
It may sound corny, but in the human sense he's everything I am not, so he completes me. (Cue Celine Dion's Because You Loved Me here)
On a more serious note, I admire his courage and patriotic fortitude. In September he will have given up six months of his family life to serve his country. Six months of hearing his children laugh and seeing them grow. Six months of familiar church surroundings. Six months of family gatherings and celebrations. Six months of honey-do lists. So, maybe the nagging he hasn't missed so much.
And he's proud to do it. That's the part that really gives me pause. He doesn't do it b/c he's been made to. He doesn't do it begrudgingly. He has done it because he considers it an honor and a privilege.
Is he ready to come home? Absolutely. Does he somehow wish he could have avoided the loneliness and angst of being apart from his family? Probably. Would he trade his time of service to his country? Not a chance. And that is why I want to pay tribute to my husband on this Tribute Tuesday.
Thank you, Babe, for your part in making this world safer for our children and our children's children. We are proud to call you daddy and husband.
Let Freedom Ring!
