A port in the storm. MHR's a day early


The sweet Katy Lin started My Husband Rocks several months ago and I try to participate often. It's fun and it definitely is something positive since there is so much negative talk in this world. O.k, I am getting off the soapbox to bring you this weeks episode of my husband rocks! It is a day early but tomorrow is a very hectic day.


Love has no limits, no bounds. A lot of you already know that my husband knew my children before I had even met him. Although my children are grown, my youngest is still very much a child. My husband knew from the first time he met him. He treated him no differently than he did my oldest son. Once I was introduced into the picture (my oldest son played match maker) I saw that he saw my son as no different from any one else. How refreshing is that? He did not judge (trust me, I've seen a lot of that over the years), he accepted his limitations and health problems as being very normal. Not a problem.

He knew the road would be bumpy, o.k., beyond bumpy at times but he still wanted to be a part of our lives.


I was very used to taking care of everything myself. It is wonderful to have a partner that has learned over the years what is important in life. He is my port in the storm and I am very proud to call him my husband.

Does he rock? You betcha he does.

What a sweet post! Isn't God so good to give us partners to love us and our children. I don't think my husband could love our granddaughter anymore if she was his biological grandchild. My daughter was a teenager when we married and we had our challenges. Your husband sounds great.

As a child who was brought up as a step-child most of her life, know how wonderful it is to hear this! He is definitely a rare find in today's world.

God bless you both!

Hi sweet Barb. I have dropped down a black hole of busy-ness for the next few weeks, so I will not be posting regularly. Just letting you know I loved this post, a sweet tribute to your sweetheart. (Can you tell I have been eating too much sugar?) Happy weekend!

Hi Barb!
I love your story! My husband adopted my oldest son when he was 2yrs old and was his "dad" from the first time he saw him. I know how you feel about your sweet hubby.
I'm so glad your health and your hubby's health is good! I will keep your son in my prayers sweet Barb, it has to be so hard for you some days. There will be so many jewels in your crown someday.
Big hugs, Sherry
