You know the blog rule if you’ve been here before but if not you should know, my husband is not in social media. Although he is been known to hijack this blog on my birthday. But he is intensely private. So I respect his rule of “no mushy stuff on the blog”. Kinda. Sort of. A girl has to gush from time to time right?
|Nathan’s first love, Charlie dog.|
Then I’ll add that the past three months have been a time of transition for Nathan and me. We went from me intensely traveling on business but having flexibility when I was working from home to a completely new career for me that has me home every night but has me leaving many early mornings before anyone else in the house is awake. Nathan has taken on getting the girls to daycare each morning to making a stop at home to put something in the Crock-Pot for supper to helping clean around the house. Part of our transition includes we no longer have a cleaning lady and let’s be clear that we miss her…immensely. Add that he and his dad are strapped with a growing small business and he is over flowing with volunteer community duties. I open my eyes to look at the clock some nights when he goes to bed and realize my alarm is going off in a few hours. I’m not sure how he keeps it all together but he does with out complaint.
Nathan has taught me whether it’s Chevy to Ford or corporate business to small business or private industry to state government career choices, change is good. Sometimes change is not easy or smooth but change forces us to think and behave differently. It provides growth opportunities.
But Nathan does it better than me.
He’s more tactful than me. And like too many wives, I probably don’t tell him enough how much he is respected, appreciated and loved. Wait. Did that just get mushy? I better cut it out now.
Today, Nathan and I are raising a three children together, one being a teenage son. I am confident the last of the good guys is not going to end with my husband.
I’m pretty sure that teenage son is being raised to be a “good guy” as well. Nathan – just suck it up, let her be mushy it is on of many ways she shows her love and appreciation. How lucky you found each other and you are definitely learning and growing in this time of transition.

Loved this post. We can never show too much appreciation for our men. They come few and far between. I have a feeling he and Ryan would get along really well. 🙂
Boy I can feel for you. My husband does everything better than me, too.
And soon we’ll be making a BIG change in our lives. It’s going to be a hard adjustment, but I do pray that it will go as God intends.
Loved your post. And if he is not in social media (my hubby isn’t either), then I think it’s okay to gush once in a while. ;o)
Have a great day! :o)
Nice to read this post. And, nice to read such devotion. Wonderful.

Love this post, Katie. I dated mostly bad guys, before I met the good guy I married. He scared me a bit bc he was so different than what I’d known. He still does scare me that way sometimes. That thing you said about Nathan doing change better than you? Maybe that way of being strong and steady in changes, inspiring others around them to be strong too, maybe that’s one characteristic the good guys share. I’m so glad for it!
