He's My Hero

I am lucky enough being married to a hero. We have been together a long time. It is so great being with someone you are proud of.

Being a hero is not just someone who rescues people from death. A hero is also someone you can always count on. Some one who is sick but, worries about other people. He all ways knows the right thing to do in emergency situations.

He is a good friend even when you are at your worst. He does not always win, but he always tries. He accepts your bad things as well as your good things. He is a husband and father that works a job he hates because he is supporting a family and it is necessary. Working two jobs when it is necessary to stay afloat. I have learned that men can cry and not be afraid to show emotions .

We have made mistakes during our time together, but we have learned from the mistakes and are closer because of them. Since we are married a long time, we have had many arguments. I think that these disagreements were very helpful with learning about each other. True feelings often come to the surface during arguments. Always argue fairly. Never call each other names or insult one another. These are things that cannot be taken back.

We have had a lot of really great times together. Camping, motorcycle rides, traveling, family vacations and singing kareoke. We have had many great friends come and go through our lives. This made things even better, sharing the wealth of good times with others.

Looking back on some of the things we shared, like the old, ratty, cars that we had to jump to start, or rap a blanket around yourself, when you went to work, because there was no heater in the car. None of these things bothered us then, it was just part of life. We had a car that would not shift until you stopped, and lifted the hood and manuelly pulled up the linkage. You would then go on your way. That would be unacceptable now.

In those days, my husband was the one who worked, the mothers stayed home with the kids, so there was not a great deal of extra money. Thank goodness for the lay-a-way plan. I had something in lay-a-way all the time we were raising the kids.

We raised beautiful, hardworking children. Having a wonderful marriage and a terrific family is what life is all about. These are the things you are most proud of.

Well, that's it for this time. See you again?
