Today is all about my husband. Sam is my best friend and I will always think the best of him. I could go on and on about the things I love about him. Since today is his birthday I am going to list off 5 reasons why I think he is the best. This blog post is a surprise for him and he has no idea I am writing this.
1. He is a hardworker
I have never met a more hardworking person in my life. He will push himself until he can’t any longer. He makes sure he gets the job done and gets it done right. He’s the kind of person that you will WANT to have on your team because whatever task he’s given, he does it with excellence. He’s also very efficient and can work fast without making mistakes. Whenever I see him working hard and striving for the best, I think of Colossians 3:23-24 “Whatever you do, work with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
2. He is a great communicator
Communication just comes easy for him. He chooses his words wisely and maintains respect from the other person. He is good at recognizing tone and body language. That is something I am learning from him as well. I have since learned that I don’t have to be wordy and can use about half the words and still get the point across.
3. He is very good at setting healthy boundaries
Maintaining healthy boundaries is natural for him. To him it’s just common sense and I’ve learned so much when I hear him talk about boundaries. He understands and respects other’s as well as understanding his own. He is very good at respecting himself and maintaining the boundaries he set for himself. He is also very respectful if it has been crossed.
4. He makes me smile everyday
He is so goofy and that keeps things exciting! I mean, he’s also not afraid to laugh at himself and he doesn’t care what people think. His smile is one of the most attractive things to me and it makes me smile every time I see it. There are different kinds and they each have a name.
5. He pushes me to pursue my dreams
He 100% is on board with my goals. At times when I feel hopeless or just stuck, he becomes the wind behind my sails. He is a big reason I do my blog now because he sees the potential in me and believes that I can do a great job. When he brags about me, it lifts me up and I start to believe in myself. He has helped me figure out what I want to do and by his example, he encourages me to keep pushing.
There are so many other qualities I could list off for you. If I could describe my husband in 3 words, it would be ambition, determination, and integrity. Watching him achieve goals and accomplish challenges motivates me. It is amazing to me how much work he can get done in a very little span of time. He knows how to get tasks done.
Sam, every day you inspire me and motivate me. You are my better half and I could not imagine life without you. I love you and have a happy birthday.
