Beautiful Days and a Good Man

So...what are y'all doing out there on this beautiful day?  I'm putting together my final porfolio for a grad class and GLORY HALLELUJAH it is almost done.  As of next week, I'll be done with one of the classes. Life is indeed good.

Hank likes to get out of the house when I'm doing schoolwork because he wants to talk to me and I get all snippy back at him when I'm trying to concentrate.  It hurts his feelings. He packed up this morning and went to pick up Ned for a day at the farm. Ol' Ned recently reminded him that they'd not spent much time over there since Christmas so today will be a win win all the way around for everybody.

I've got to pay tribute to my wonderful husband.  We talked long and hard before I took the principal position because I wanted him to understand what the first year would be like...particularly for a first year principal opening a new school. He said he understood and supported me and he has stayed true to his word...and I know it hasn't been easy because his job is demanding in its own right.

Bless his heart, he hasn't complained that I've hardly cooked a meal on a weeknight in an entire year. Clean clothes just magically appear in the dresser drawers and closet. He's tended to Mother and Ned on weekends while I worked on "work work" and class work. When I start to teeter totter on the edge, he pulls me back. He's the best daddy who ever lived. Look at the smile on his face when he's with his little girl. I don't tell him enough what a blessing he is...not nearly enough.

Tell us a little bit about a wonderful person in your life!!


  1. Awww - Belle. What a sweet post and you're the best, too! You have a lovely life ;-). XOXO

  2. My husband sounds very much like yours! They are a real blessing, aren't they?


  3. he sounds like a real sweetheart!


  4. lovely post, and a fabulous husband!

  5. Sounds like you've got a "keeper"!! My hubby is truly a help-mate for me.....since he is retired, he willingly does the housekeeping, etc. So that works out greatly!


  6. Hi sweet friend!

    What a sweet message and photo! I'm sure your hubby feels blessed to be your man.

    Gosh, I've had fun catching up with you tonight. It seems like FOREVER since I've had time to just read blogs and enjoy myself. Between our two weeks in California and then having two grandsons here for Spring Break, I seem to have gotten myself behind. Not anymore though. I'm BAAAACK!



Please makes me HAPPY!
