“We need to ditch the idea that there is any value in the strong and silent man being in any way attractive. Being silent isn’t being strong, it’s being a victim.”  Jane Powell

Reading this quote made me think about what a strong man I am married to/partnered with.  He’s no victim!  Yeah, I know – he’s digging that ditch with a back-hoe attachment on the John Deer tractor.  But that’s the thing . . . he’s dug a few ditches in his lifetime so he knows the value of using the proper tools to get the job done.  And now that he can afford the tools, why not use them??  I am continually amazed at his strength in all kinds of situations . . .not just ditch-digging.  He fixes things, builds things, designs things, sells things, thinks big and lives large.  I guess you can say I’m a huge fan of his! He keeps his cool in some pretty difficult business situations . . . when projects seem to be heading off the rails he manages to rally the troops and get things back on track.  He doesn’t lose his head, he doesn’t lose his cool.  He’s an amazing father who helps his boys when they need him, but at the same time enables them to make decisions and learn from their mistakes.  He’s an absolutely giddy and silly Grandpa . . . completely in love with the little ones.  He’s about the best son a mother could ever want . . . being there for his 93 year old mother no matter what.  And most of all, he is my rock, my best friend, my confidant and life partner.  Every day is not perfect . . . and guess what . . . his farts do stink . . . but I love him no matter what!  We are traversing whatever ditches and mountains we encounter in life . . . hand in hand, side by side, together.
