Husband bragging

If you have read my blog for any length of time, you know I don't talk a whole lot about my husband. Like every young marriage, we have problems. We are both stubborn control freaks who like everything to go the way we expect and plan it to...but we don't think alike so that causes a whole world of problems. It feels like everything is a battle or a competition and I'm NOT a big competitor (he very much is). He is a very hard worker (at work) but doesn't do too much around the house and expects me to take on pretty much everything. To be perfectly honest, I've had a hard time lately remembering the good qualities and focusing too much on the things that make me mad.
HOWEVER...something has changed. I don't know what, but I'm glad. Part of it is probably my attitude and choosing to see the good instead of the bad. Since we've been in our new home (one week now) he has helped unpack, done little things to the yard and in the garage without me asking...he even cleaned up dinner last night!! I am so proud of my hubby. I think that after 5 years, we are starting to get the hang of a few things, although there is a whole lot more we have to learn. We always have good days and bad days...it just depends on what we choose to focus on.
Ray, I love you and I'm proud to call you my husband.
