    Was at a table runner class yesterday at my local quilt shop and we were all talking about one thing and the other when it came up how we all had such good Husbands.

    How many of you have one good story of why you have the best husband.

    Just this week mine cooked supper so I could keep sewing.( mind you I was home all day sewing).

    Mine has volunteered to wash the clothes since problems with my knee and while waiting for surgery. The washer is 2 steps down, so deal is he washes and I fold. He is an OTR driver, so there is about 3 or 4 loads when ever he gets home.

    I just said in another post that my husband wouldn't notice if I had bolts all over the house! But he's a very generous guy and never says a word about my sewing stuff. He's always been that way. He loves what I make and knows the joy it gives me.
    He is a fab cook and does 99.9% of it. I need to count my blessings more. Thanks for the reminder :)

    We're not married yet but he's my soul mate! I'd only been dating him for FIVE months when I had to have major surgery. He carted me back & forth to the hospital, took care of my house and, babysat my kitties (even though, at the time, he was notorious for hating cats, which has changed 180 degrees!). We're still together after 4+ years. You couldn't ask for a more caring person.

    This will probably sound silly...I was hospitalized one Thanksgiving while at my husband's parents with our two kids. My husband tried to spend every waking minute with me while I was in the hospital. It was then I realized how much he really loved me. He is the best husband.

    My hubby is the most wonderful man I have ever know. Completly selfless and kind,but strong and steadfast. He does everything that needs done to help me and that includes any housework,grocery shopping ,laundry,you name it. He has cancer now and with both of us having health issues,its kind of a struggle for us both. We try to take care of each other the best we can,but he is my rock.

    I too, have the best hubby in the world. He has the biggest heart ever! He tries to help with everything, even some things I don't want him to! We are truly soulmates forever! We are actually divorced but plan on re-marrying someday! Altogether, about 30 yrs!

    I have the best husband in the world too. He supports my hobby, complimenting my work, holding the quilts for photos.
    He has taken great care of me during the recovery of my 7 surgeries in the last 3 years. He cooks sometimes and does the dishes most of the time. He is very generous and loving. I have been so blessed!!!

    I remember one time when DH touched my heart. We were in a casino hotel, I was at the bottom of an escalator waiting for him (he didn't know I was there). I saw him at the top. He was talking to a young boy about 10, couldn't hear them but could tell the boy was a little afraid to get on the escalator. I could tell DH was helping him and saying, like, let's get on together, 1, 2, 3.... they came down together.

    That's what he is like.

    I am a bit of a parrot freak. My husband will take me miles to a pet shop, then he puts his seat back and has a sleep while I look at the parrots and play with them. He also takes me on what we call a wild goose chase to find a quilt shop where he waits for me too. He is terrific.

    Blessings to all your "husbands/partners". I so miss having someone in my life to share it with. Maybe this year the Good Lord will open my life to someone. I hope this is in His plan.

    Give your your Hubby's a hug from your quilty friend and may God bless you both

    Happy Holidays, Lovequilts

    Ok I have to say that mine is one of the best around:

    After a very horrible Saturday (PDA section explains it), I came down with a terrible flu bug, he made dinner from Sunday-Wednesday (because he knew I was sick) and today he is making a batting bar for my quilting frame complete with mounting brackets, all the while understanding that all I really wanted to be doing is sleeping (he even loaded the dishwasher).

    Yep, I will keep him (sorry ladies)!

    In 2001, we were still living in Michigan. I was in the hospital for a week for migraines and various other types of headaches. The hospital was in Chicago, Illinois almost a three hour drive one way from our home. My husband would work half a day, take off and drive to Chicago to spend a few hours sitting with me while he ate his take-out supper even though I was so medicated I could hardly open my eyes let alone visit with him. Then he would drive the almost three hours home. He did this every day that I was hospitalized. When I told him he didn't have to do it because he would be so tired out, he said he didn't care if I couldn't talk to him while he was there, he just wanted to be with me. I love him more than life itself and anything in it. (I love my sons just as much just differently). My husband is my favorite blessing.

    My husband is wonderful. I was a single mom with 3 kids. He married all of us and then we added 3 more kids to the mix. Ww celebrated 25 years of marriage this summer. We have 6 kids and he tells people that the only steps we have are the ones comming in the front door of the house. We are all just family here. I wouldn't trade him for the world!!!

    All your hubbies sound wonderful but mine is simply the best!

    When we married I had three children aged 11, 12 and 13. together we brought them up. Ex-husband never paid a penny and DH insisted that we never went to the child support agency.. he supported us all. He put them all through further education and has supported me in all my hobbies.

    We have a 9 year old together whom he adores (and she adores him) and although he goes out to work at 06.30 and doesn't get home before 20:00 he always manages to give her at least an hour before she goes to bed. After we eat, he always loads the dishwasher and cleans the kitchen and he has never once refused me anything. He tells me every day how beautiful I am (he must be blind) and tells me many times each day that he loves me. There hasn't been a week go by in out marriage when he hasn't brought me home flowers and usually some chocolate. He is just the best!

    Hugs

    Caroline

    I have the most wonderful husband in the world. He has stuck by me for 48 years, through thick and thin, sickness and health, PMS, mood swings, menopause, gray hair and sagginess. He is not perfect, but to stick by me, he comes very close.

    mine too..he has been doing laundry for years..due to the fibromyalgia,he goes down to the basement ..he brongs them to me once in a while to fold..if i ask him to!

    he goes to work everyday, he doesn't stop at the bar with the guys..he raised my girls from my first marriage like they were his own. i couldn't ask for a better husband..
