Brag on Your Man Monday

So- my D-mom friend Shamae at Crazy-Happy-Life has started a new thing which is WAY cool! Brag On Your Man Monday! Our guys often do get over looked in the things they do for us and our family. I know there is NO WAY our family could function without Jeff- he is the leader and head of our home. So- let's all join Shamae by blogging about our guys. AND make sure he sees it- he needs to know how much you love and respect him!
Before Jeff and I married, we discussed kids, working, homeschooling---the whole gammit. We agreed while dating that when we had kids at home- I would be at home, no matter the cost. In 11 1/2 years of marriage, he hasn't failed on that promise. Even after Jada was born and he went back to school full time- he waited tables when he wasn't working. We had never been poorer, but we had never been happier. He works so hard and SO WELL at his job- he's the GM of a restaurant, which by the way, is one of the most grueling jobs out there if you're doing it well. But- what he does even better is being a husband and a father. He is intentional with the kids- making every effort to be available to them- to talk, to pray, to play. And, he loves me unconditionally and has gone out of his way to make sure that he and I are going out on dates every couple of weeks. I honestly don't know how he does it- but he works hard at striking a good balance between work and home. I am GRATEFUL for the sacrifices he makes every day to ensure the security of our home for our family!
