Since I Met My Spouse What Unexpected Change Has Occurred?

June 28, 2010Katie

So today over at The RHOK, the McLinky Monday challenge question is…

Think about the day you met your spouse.  Since then and due to their influence, what is the one thing that has changed about you that you never expected to happen?

Gosh, my answer to that would everything and anything good in my life.  Mr. Wonderful has been such a positive influence on me in so many ways.  Before him, I probably didn’t have the level of confidence to do things the way I do now.

Case in point – my blog, which led to a TV spot, which has now led to a weekly TV segment.  All because he made me feel worthy and praised me and was there to help manage the extra stress and just be the genuinely helpful guy that he is.  I know he will be there to manage things when life may get a little crazy due to the extra hours.

Did I mention, sometimes when I’m intensely typing away on a new recipe, that he quietly walks into the room and brings me dinner?

Did I mention that he patiently waits for his meal through my insane picture snapping at dinnertime?

Did I also mention that he usually does the dishes, after I’ve trashed the kitchen cooking?

There’s nothing sexier than a set of good forearms in a sink with bubbles.

Okay, so the man has had an abundance of home-cooked meals and quite honestly, hardly had the same thing twice over the past year due to food blogger insanity, but I’m telling you, the man is a saint.

So, Mr. Wonderful, if you’re reading this, you have no idea what the belief you’ve had in me has done for me and changed about me in the past 5 years.  Having a man who believes in you and helps you along the way…

It’s priceless.

On a different note, I have also learned to bait hooks with stink bait to go fishing with him.  I’ve learned how to “troll fish” and how to read in a boat while he goes wandering off on the docks to look for a better spot.

But isn’t that what love is all about?  Encouraging your spouse in the things that are like you, but also in the differences, joining them along the way and loving them through it all?

    Have you only been married 5 years? And he does sound like a saint! :) Maybe I should try more home cooking! LOL! Actually Bert is pretty close to sainthood already!

    Awww..that's a sweet post, and now I understand why you call him "Mr. Wonderful." Nothing like the loving support of a good spouse to get you through. ~~Mrs. McGillicutty

    Loved this, Katie! It truly is great when a husband supports a wife's crazy blogging time. I'm fortunate that way as well. I'm so happy for you that you have a Mr. Wonderful in your life. I'm also so thrilled about your new ventures!!
