One way to avoid emotional entanglements in the first place is to focus on my leading man. (Click to Tweet this.)
Go ahead, brag on your man! Tell us one reason your husband is your hero in the comments below.
Here’s my response:
The reason that comes to mind this morning is how my husband looks out for me in little ways. He’s been getting up to work out at 5:30 AM for years; I just started getting up at 5:45 to jog.
Today I noticed that several lights had been turned on in key places throughout the house; Daniel had gone around switched them on so that I wouldn’t trip over or bash into anything on my way down the stairs and into the garage.
This is especially heroic because he hates wasting electricity and is forever turning out lights that aren’t obviously in use.
But he knows I have terrible night vision and a history of tripping over my own feet, so he put my needs for light above his own need to save.
It’s an act of self-sacrifice–no matter how small–that makes a hero.
(And in this case, a wife with far fewer bruises and band-aids!)
