My Husband, My Best Friend: Happy Birthday

Today is my husband’s birthday and though it’s started out a bit rocky, I am bound and determined to make it a great one. To start things off on the right foot, I decided to deviate from my original post meant for today to instead write about him. Yes, that means that this post will be a bit sappy, but I’m sure you’ll forgive me at the end of the day. The idea for my post today actually comes from a fellow blogger named Rebecca from, New Momma Beckers. She recently wrote a post about why her husband is her best friend, which I thought would be a nice thing for me to do for my husband on his birthday.

Yin and Yang

If you don’t already know, I met my husband online back in February 2006 and we’ve pretty much been inseparable since then. Something that we quickly learned about one another is that we complement each other. He is the yang to my yin, so-to-speak, we complete each other and it’s noticeable not only to me, but also to those around us. We hold each other together, even in the worst of situations.

In many of my blog posts you’ll notice I discuss the importance of communication. My husband and I have slowly, but surely, worked out a way for us to be able to communicate with one another. It has taken time, as it probably will with your significant other, but we’ve found a way that works. It’s not flawless, of course, but we can communicate with one another despite what may be going on around us. I think that if I couldn’t communicate with him as well as I do, or vice versa, we wouldn’t have made it this far in our relationship.

Motivator and Support System

I will let you all in on a little secret of mine. My husband is the reason that I went on to get my Master’s degree. Without him being there for me, to motivate me, I probably would have stopped going to school once I had gotten my Bachelor’s degree. My husband motivates me to do things that I don’t think I can do like going on to get my Master’s and even going to blogging conferences despite my fears. Not only does he motivate me, he also supports me with whatever I decide to do. Without his support and motivation, I’m not sure if I would have accomplished as much as I have so far. He truly is my rock.

So Much More…

If I continued on listing off reasons why my husband is my best friend, it would be never-ending and you’d probably stop reading my blog because it would be nothing more than mushy-lovey-dovey talk. So I’ll stop myself there and instead turn it over to you!

Let’s Ramble:

Do you consider your significant other to be your best friend? If so, what makes them so?

Have you told your significant other lately how you feel about them? How often do you tell them?

Before I go, I just want to wish my husband a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY once again. I don’t know where I’d be without you.
