Five Minute Friday {On Saturday}: Tender

On Fridays around these parts we stop, drop, and write.

For fun, for love of the sound of words, for play, for delight, for joy and celebration at the art of communication. 

For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not. Won’t you join us? 

Today’s topic. Tender


He’s not THAT type of husband.

He doesn’t believe in PDA.

You will never find him in the kitchen wearing an apron or cooking a gourmet dinner.

He doesn’t own a suit.

He doesn’t sing love songs or play the guitar.

He always leaves the cereal box on the counter.

But it doesn’t matter because he displays his tender love to me everyday.

By being a fabulous father to our two boys.

By giving me back rubs after a hard day.

By doinking my nose and throwing a smooch at me over the dinner table.

By just being there and understanding.

By putting up with my crap.

His tender love is my beacon of light after a long day at work, and I know it will be there no matter what happens.

He may not be THAT type of husband, and that’s fine because he’s MY husband and I wouldn’t change  a thing.

    >It's the every day domestic romance that is the sweetest, and lasts the longest. I didn't marry THAT kind of man either, but in a way he is better for being real and silly and present, just like yours. Thanks for stopping by my blog so I could find yours.

    >He sounds very like my husband – which in my humble opinion is the best kind of husband!

    Have a lovely weekend.


  4. >That emotional tenderness – the one who knows us and is really THERE – that's the best kind of tenderness if you ask me!
