Spouse's Day

Today is National Spouse's Day so I am dedicating it to my spouse and best friend- Robert.

Robert is not only my husband, but my best friend. We have no secrets - none. We know each other better than we know ourselves. He is an all around great guy. Hardest worker I know. Of course, he is a man, so he is not perfect, lol. He has his flaws and vices, as we all do. I just love him as he is.

He is not my first husband. I married my first right out of high school, had two sons, and we eventually decided we wanted different things- I wanted adventure and travel and he wanted a younger woman of a different race that he worked with. We both got what we wanted. Funny thing is my ex and Robert even get along great. They painted the inside of my son's house together, they went to hockey games and ball games together, we all do Holidays together... Robert gets along well with everyone. Most people really like and respect him.

The best thing about my husband is that he builds me up instead of tearing me down, and I know some of you will say "Yeah right", but I Know this man loves me. He shows me every day. He loves my sons and he really loves our grandchildren. They know no difference- they are just blessed with an extra grandpa that loves them. When I got sick and had to have my transplant, we went through that together. I was in the hospital six weeks with complications ( and 3 major surgeries), and he was there daily. He came to the hospital every day after work (a 45 minute drive) and spent the night- then got up about 3 AM to go home, shower, and go back to work. He has been by my side since day #1. I love him more than words can say.
