|My lovely husband.|
We've always said that the thing that has held our marriage together are our shared values and sense of humor. And if you asked me what I admired most about my husband, I would tell you that it is his humor, intellect, loyalty, and quiet gentleness that move me.
Which is why it has me laughing for more than a week now, that when I conjure affection for him, I keep returning to the image of him leaving our house last week like The Terminator, a baseball bat gripped in each hand, on a day that he thought I needed some protection.
And, don't be fooled by his sweet face; he looked like he knew how to use them.
And it doesn't hurt that my usually clean-shaven man is now sporting a scruffy beard.
Foolish of me? Perhaps. But, true, nonetheless. So, I confess.
Of course, I still admire him for his humor, intellect, gentleness and our shared values.
But, oh, the bats and the beard.
