My husband is my best friend. That is different from being my BFF. BFFs are girls. I have one of those too. But my husband will always be my best friend, my better half. 🙂
#29: Having a Best Friend September 24, 2010
Let’s face it. My husband is my best friend. Not in a BFF kind of way – I have one of those too. But in your husband is your best friend kind of way. Someone once told me that the reason she loved being married so much was beause it was like you get to hang around your best friend 24/7. When I was single, I would have to figure out who I would get together with, who I’d have dinner. or go to the movies with. With my husband, I have an automtaic, built-in best friend. The key is not to take this best friend for granted. Just because he’s there and available all the time doesn’t make him any less valuable. If I had a nugget of gold at my house, is it any less valuable because it’s always there? No! Well neither is my husband. I need to appreciate and be thankful for the precious gift of having my husband there, for being my best friend.
#18: Someone To Share Mundane Things With September 1, 2010
I went to the doctor yesterday and found out that my blood pressure was a little high. When you are married, your spouse is the perfect person to share these things with. He already knew I was going to the doctor for a check-up. He got my text saying “on way to doc” and “at doc.” There was no need to fill him in on any of the background. My text “blood pressure a little high” made perfect sense to him. It wasn’t alarming as it would have been if I sent that text to my Mom. She didn’t know I had a check up. That statement out of the blue would have resulted in a call from my Mom asking “What’s wrong? Are you ok?” Of course, Moms are great too but in this case, I’m talking about more mundane things. And perhaps high blood pressure isn’t so mundane. Of course it’s important and I need to watch my salt. But you know what I mean. Isn’t it great to have someone with whom you can share all those little things that are going on in your life?
#16: Having someone take care of you when you are sick August 30, 2010
It’s awful being sick. But you know what makes it better? To have a loving spouse there to take care of you. My husband brought be soup in bed. He went to the store to get me juice. He bought be a humidifier and put it together and hooked it up. He also hugged me when I asked him to and listened to me whine. I feel sorry for him, but it sure was nice to have him there.
