Posting on "Super" -- Super Spouse
Since we're into the "love" month, I decided to write about my "super spouse", Fred.
Fred is a great conversationalist and can even talk easily about emotions, something most males are not good at, so I'm told.
He's a great help around the house. He washes dishes, vacuums, and cleans up whenever the dog decides to bring up his stomach contents for review.
Fred is a talented wood worker and has been building this sailboat for about three years. This spring he plans to put it in the water. It's very close to being ready to launch.
Fred was born a "romantic". I was born "practical". We temper each other's tendencies. This has been a plus in our 41-year marriage, not a catalyst for conflict, probably because even though he's romantic, he is also very careful with money.
Fred is usually in good humor, works hard at whatever he's doing, yet has the ability to kick back and take advantage of the fact he's retired.
The Lord blessed me with a super spouse when He guided me into Fred's path one year when I was far from home for my summer job. Who'd have known our summer romance would become the romance of a lifetime!
