List at least one thing your husband did or said in the past week that reminded you why you love him.This week, Austin and I decided that we are going to train for, participate in, and finish the Des Moines Marathon on October 18th!!! (It's on my 101 things list, and I originally posted about it here.) That decision in and of itself makes me really proud of and impressed by my husband, but the moment(s) this week that really reminded me of why I love him, and why I fell in love with him in the first place, were when we were working out for the first time, and the subsequent conversations we had about training and our eating and exercise habits.
Austin has shown me once again the strength of his character in his determination and dedication. Once he has made up his mind to do something - in this case run the marathon - he is going to do it. He is excited about working out (which makes it a lot easier for me, because it's not really something that I would get excited about if we were not doing it together), he is becoming vigialant about what we eat, and he has decided to cut soda entirely out of his diet. He is pretty cool :)
Share a "Generous Wife Tip"My tip is to do little things for your husband, little things that he could do for himself, but that he would appreciate having you do for him. Lay out his clothes in the morning. Does he like to have coffee, a bowl of cereal, or a multivitamin for breakfast? Set out a bowl and spoon, pour a glass of juice and get his multivitamin out for him. Set the coffee pot to auto-brew so it's reeey for him when he wakes up, or if you get up first, make the coffee. Make him a cup of hot chocolate to warm him up when he comes in from moving snow. None of these things take a lot of work, just a little bit of forethought.
