This One's for You, Honey

I was joking with a friend on facebook this morning about how my husband will probably never retire. This conversation led to think about what a hard worker he is. He is always ready to go to work! He prays about his clients and his co-workers, and does his best when he is at work.

Sometimes, I become blase about the ordinary things my hubby does. But really, he is extraordinary. Because God made him just the way he is, he is unique. Even his daily work habits are unique to him and a blessing to his co-workers, his employer, and to his family. I never have to worry about his eagerness to work. He blesses me with stability and a feeling of being safe.

I think that's what God intended for him to be to me and to our son: someone for us to lean on and someone for us turn to when we feel vulnerable. He is a God-fearing man and honors his commitments to God, his family and his employer.

So thank you, Arlen Yoder, for being the hard worker you are! I love you, honey!

As someone who has met Arlen I can say he truly is a great guy. =] Just buckle your seat belt and keep your camera ready to point and shoot when he takes you on a tour of where he grew up. ;-) You'll be delighted with what you see and he'll tickle you with some of the his stories. =]

Arlen is one of the good guys, for sure. Why he (and Joseph) would EVER agree to drive around a van full of women and shows us Ohio sites, is a mystery. A true mystery, indeed:)
