Day 28: What’s your favorite quality in your spouse?

March 16, 2014

Part of the 30 day challenge series

Hard to pick just one, but the one that comes to mind right now is that he’s trustworthy.  If he says he’ll be there, he’ll be there — at least as far as it depends on him.  If says he’ll do it, he’ll do it.  He feels things deeply, too, and he has his off days like anyone else; but he’s a man of principle.  He isn’t generally volatile, capricious, or moody.  He doesn’t run after his every emotion and give license to each of them.  He keeps secrets.  He’s steady.  He’s faithful.

But don’t get me wrong.  He isn’t bland!  His trustworthiness is dynamic, creative, and thoughtful.  It’s affectionate.  It’s warm.  It’s manly.

Ian, see those rainbow dots?  It’s a meter.  If it goes all the way right and hits red, that means you’re really crying your eyes out.  And appa holding you so tenderly?  He’s done this for you many times the past 10 months of your life, whether he was tired or having the kind of day when it might’ve been nice for him to be in your position.
