30 Ways in 30 Days {Part One}

Kimberly from Sew Encouraging suggested a goal:  for every day in the month of September, blog about one thing you love about your husband.  So frequently, we tend to belittle those around us (especially husbands, for some reason).  We see (and do) this not only in our day-to-day conversations, but also on TV and in books.  Husbands are frequently portrayed as being ignorant and childish, while the wife is babysitting and constantly correcting.

This is not how it should be!

I know that I am guilty of this... I don't want to be.  I love Jason so much... he is an amazing husband, father, and friend!  I want (and need) to share this!

I want to encourage my friends and readers to join Kimberly in what she calls "30 Ways in 30 Days."  Even if you don't have a blog, feel free to share why you love your husband on Facebook, Twitter, or even just by telling him when you wake up every morning or just before you go to bed at night!

Since I'm starting a few days into September (the 4th was actually Jason's birthday :), I'm putting the first few days here...

Day One... I love how you love God.  Every morning, I hear you get out of bed before everyone else, fix yourself coffee, and just spend time with the Lord.

Day Two... I love your sense of humor.  No matter what happens, you can put a silly spin on it!

Day Three... I love how you decided to encourage our family to live a healthier lifestyle through example.  You take care of yourself physically (losing weight, becoming "fit," running races both to prove to yourself that you can and to make yourself stronger), and you encourage me in being more active without belittling me.

Day Four... This sort of goes hand-in-hand with Day Three.  I love how you look! (Please don't get embarrassed).  You are hot, and I love looking at you (truth: I stare when you're not looking :).

Day Five... I love how you aren't afraid to clean... mop, vacuum, dishes, whatever.  Thank you for not feeling that this was strictly a wife's job (although I'm trying to take over more now that I'm home with the boys).  Thank you for picking up my slack during the last few months of pregnancy and these last rough few months of no energy.  Thank you for not complaining.

Every day (as I can) I plan on adding one more thing that I love!  Hope you take on this challenge, too!  Leave a comment for Kimberly if you do!
