I see a lot of whining and complaining about Husbands. I would like to give props to all the hardworking, loving, tender husbands out there. A SAHM is such a hard job, we get no thanks, no sick days, no paid vacations. My husband works outside all day long doing construction for my father, he comes home to me and our house full of loud boys. The clothes on my kids back came from him, and I never stop to say thank you, makes you think? I dont ever see him delay getting out of his truck to walk through the door. He just loves getting to tell me how his day went over dinner (that I made). He never complains if the house is a wreak, he can see how the day went on my face. I hugged him tonight for no reason, and got hugged back. Have you hugged your husband today?

I, too, agree! I hear so many women complaining about how there husbands are always gone, working, never around. I doubt any husband likes it that way! They are making sacrifices, too to provide things for you and your children. My husband left his Pilot Medevac position in the Army last March (and was never deployed). Only (excellent paying) job he was able to find was working for a civilian contracting company that deploys. He left for his first 6 month deployment when our son was 13 months old. He just got back a few weeks ago and will only be home for 4 months then he'll be leaving again for another 6. I'm certainly not looking forward to it and I only have one sister close by, but what he does is a HUGE sacrifice on his part (not just mine) so he can provide for us and I love him for that! He gets daily hugs and kisses! ;)

i always ALWAYS hug and kiss my husband multiple times a day. even if i'm pissed about something, i still want him to know that i love him no matter what. I think that it really benifits our kids as well cause they are growing up in a house that is filled with love and respect. although my husband failed horribly this mother's day ( he has already apologized) , he is still an awesome dad and an amazing husband who takes care of all of us and works his butt off 7 days a week to provide for his family. :)

Absolutely. I may complain about him all the time, but I always tell him everyday thank you and that I love him. He puts a roof over our heads, feeds us, clothes us, pays the bills, etc. He is very hardworking and I make sure he knows he is appreciated.

I didn't, and am kicking myself. Thanks for making me remember that my other half is a wonderful, caring, funny, loving and generous husband and AWESOME Dad. He's getting hugs tomorrow!

Thank you! I was thinking this myself!

I am very proud of my role as the home maker and I do a damn fine job at it too! We are a team here and we know we cannot do our jobs without the other half doing theirs.



Its too bad that some people have trouble embracing their roles. Accepting and taking on the challenge has made me the happiest I have ever been. It really shows.



I love my man with all my heart. He pays for EVERYTHING. I am so well taken care of, and so is he :)

Preach! My husband is a Dean over discipline at an inner city school and receives negativity all day, everyday. He doesn't want to come home to more negativity. So I find pleasure in making my home as peaceful as possible to make coming home from work more enjoyable for him. My son and I greet him on the porch (smiles and all) and I make sure there's food ready for him (today was just one of those day. I picked up take out. Ha ha!) But he did get his hug!

I hugand kiss my husband everyday and on weekend's we play a game where I will tell him somthing I love him for or somthing I appreciate him for and he will do it back. It keeps the love going between us and it helps to show we appreciate eachother in what we do.

Yes! We never take each other for granted - he is forever telling me what a great mother I am and that I do everything around here and how much he appreciates it and I try to always let him know how much I appreciate all of his hard work through my words and my actions. I make sure he has a home cooked meal every night, I like to send little love notes in his lunch (that I make for him), sometimes I'll get his bath ready for him, and I love to massage his tired muscles.

no:( my hubby is away for work and I have not seen him since yesterday afternoon... If he was here I would have kissed and hugged him lots today. He is great and I miss him heaps...

[deleted account]

Yes I did and I kissed him too - I do every morning before he leaves for work - he gets up at 5:30am and leaves the house at 6:30am. He back from work at 5pm. Yes I am a stay-at-home mam and care for my son all day, do the washing-up, the laundry and the housework BUT my husband is the one who brings in the wages and he always does his bit when he is at home. He works Monday-Friday so we have the weekends completely together as a family. I always make sure he knows I'm grateful for what he does =] He's the best husband ever!

My husband sands and finishes hardwood floor, thats back breaking labor, and when he gets home and sees me stressed out, he helps me even though he's tired. I hug him everyday because I love him and I want to be close to him. He grabs me up and hugs me too. He's incredible.

My hubby works almost every day, big machine maintenance 48-56 hours a week and I am sooooo appreciative that I have the chance to stay at home with our two kiddos. He's my world. He always says, "I'll keep the backache if you take the headache." That's about how it works out, too. I have the mental job of playing referee to our 3 and 4 year-olds, keeping track of the bills, and doing the odd jobs (which can be a backache, too), but he works his sweet tushy off for us and I'm so thankful. It never hurts to tell him how much he is loved, and I make sure to tell the kids, as I'm wrapping him in my arms "I love your Daddy!" Then we usually get to argue about who loves Daddy the Mostest! ♥

I haven't hugged him yet today, as he left for work when I was still snoring at 5.10am! But when he comes home, we usually have a quick cuddle, and always kiss each other goodnight, or when one of us is leaving the house. Very important to keep the intimacy in a relationship, and very easy to get lazy about it. Great husbands are a blessing, and I wouldn't like to try and find a new one!! :)

We hug and kiss everyday when he comes home from work and before we go to bed and as many times as we can in between. I think that little gesture is so important for a marriage. I think all of us want to vent sometimes, but at least a good amount of us have good men who sacrifice as much as we do. It nice to see praise for the husbands here. thank you for this post. Hubby works outside and helps at home. Love you hubby!!!

You are SO right! And yes, I did hug my husband today. My husband is in the Army and a civilian Fire Fighter so we make a point to always at least say we love eachother whenever he walks out the door. He does so much for us and always tells me that the house is wonderful even if it is a mess. He is getting ready to deploy so we are making even more of an effort to hug, kiss and tell eachother that we love eachother because we never know what is going to happen on the job.

I agree! My husband is in the Army and works his butt off! We live in a big, old house that seems to always be a disaster area, regardless of how much or how long I clean. But my husband comes home from a hard day's work, and he doesn't care what the house looks like because he knows that even if I did nothing in the house that day, I still took excellent care of our son. Plus, there's always a meal on the table, usually accompanied by a dessert of some kind. That's about all that matters in this house!

What a great idea! We don't realize sometimes that they need that affection and "thank you" as much as we do. Sometimes its harder to give it because we think we have the "tougher" job, but we really both have the same stresses! I love my wonderful husband! He takes great care of us and is an AWESOME dad!

AMEN SISTA! :) With the daily stress of life we forget where it all started..Us and our husbands :) I totally agree..hug your husband for no reason and watch all the wonderful things that happen...plus your kids will benifit from it big time! My hubby also works construction in the cold MI weather, and we both have our different stress'. Mine is more mental and his is more physical...but both just as exhausting! Great post!, i think if we all took the time to stop and give each other a hug like we did when first together the changes we would see are unbeleivable!...trust me its work and you have to remind your self to do it...but hey, thats what we signed up for when we walked down that isle! "To love and to Hold!!!" Thanks for the post...another reminder to love your spouse and show 'em you care...it'll make your family strong!
