My Sweet Husband

I know that everyone thinks their husbands are great, as they should. But, I think my husband is the greatest!! I love him so much and I am so grateful that we are together forever.
He just changed jobs and is loving his new job. I have a hard time with change and have not been the happiest wife around (pregnancy, sickness and now big change). He still loves me and is working SO hard to get through the training fast. He has been getting home around 5 pm at night, which is VERY different for us. For 6 1/2 years, he would go into work at 6:45 am and if we were lucky be home by 9:00 pm. Needless to say, I am very used to getting my girls ready in the morning and putting them to bed. The girls could go 3-4 days without seeing him. I would usually keep them up late so that they could see each other. So, for him to get home at 5:00 pm, we are a little out of our element. Last week, he got home at 3:00 pm and I watched him just wander around the house. He seems so lost. He usually comes home, eats dinner and goes to bed. He didn't know what to do with himself.
He is awesome. He has taken it upon him to come home, eat dinner at the table with all of us (which we all enjoy) play with the girls, do something around the house to help and then he bathes the girls and gets them to bed for me. It is heaven!! He is so willing to help. The girls just adore him and usually cry if he even leaves the room.
The reason for this post is because he is the most serviced oriented person I know. He is always trying to help. I know that he will be doing more now that he is getting off earlier. He always tells me how he will stop and help someone with a flat tire. On Saturday, he told me that when he was in Idaho Falls, he came across a goat who had his head stuck through a fence. I think I would have just said, look at that silly goat and kept on driving. Nope, he stopped and help free the goat. The owner came up with wire cutter to cut the fence and was shocked to see that he had freed the goat himself. I thought it was nice but strange.
Yesterday, we went out to see his parent's new home in EM. On the way to the freeway, we noticed an elderly gentleman had fallen out of his motorized chair. DH will usually ask if he can stop (I am terrified of what we may stop to), but he just flipped the van around as fast as he could to help this gentleman. I was so impressed and touched that he didn't even need to question himself about wanting to help. It made me realize that I have someone very special in my life. I love him and I am so glad that he is mine. I won't keep going because it may get too mushy. I hope that all of you have someone great in your lives as well.
