Happy Friday everybody! I hope you have all had a fabulous week! Thanks for joining us again for another installment of ~My Husband Rocks!~ Friday!
This week I'd like to tell you about the financial wizard that is my husband! I have always known that he was very frugal, and he comes by it honestly as he is VERY Dutch! This is not uncommon in our part of the world. In fact the joke is, "Do you know where copper wire came from? Two Dutch men fighting over a penny!" And if you are Dutch or know Dutch people or, like me, married into a Dutch family, you will understand that this is (often) the case! :)
Not only is he very careful with our money, he also takes his responsibility as financial manager of our family very seriously. At any given point he could tell you the interest rate and balance of any loan, credit card, or bank account we have. He monitors them all very closely, and ensures that every payment gets made on time without fail.
Because he is so conscious of our finances, we are able to do and have many things that we would not be able to afford otherwise. Everything from our wonderful home to our plethora of fun "big kid" toys, to the myriad of entertainment options that we enjoy - none of it would be possible if was not so intelligent and contientious with our money.
In fact, he often says that he would like to be a financial advisor to other families who may be struggling in this area, and he would be great at this because he can so easily identify the places where people are spending more money than they need to, whether they're not using financial tools well, or if they just eat too much fast food, he has great discernment in this area. He has great discernement in a lot of areas, but that's another post for another Friday.
I am so blessed and so thankful to be married to such a smart, responsible, wonderful man!
~EDITED: I was re-reading this and realized that I must give credit to God. He has blessed us and continues to bless us beyond my wildest imagination, and Hoss would be the first to say that the main reason we live so comfortably is because of God's provision and blessing.~
