My Husband

Well here he is. I haven't written much about my husband recently so I thought I'd start off the year with a post about Chris. In case you didn't notice, he's a police officer. Before we married he was living in California and working for the State of California. He was medically retired when he was injured on the job. He was awarded the highest honor, the Medal of Valor. I won't go into details, but let's just say that he not only stopped a bad guy, he also protected an innocent person from grave danger. His retirement ended a career that he loved, but also opened up doors he couldn't have imagined. For instance, reconnecting with me. Chris saw plenty in his line of work. Some he shares with me, but also things he won't share. I'm happy that he's out of harms way now.
After retirement, he moved here to marry me. He returned to college, completed his bachelors degree and started working for our children's school system. He is now in an administrative position at a local university police department. He trains other officers. It is such a blessing that he is able to continue a career he loves.

On top of his professional accomplishments, he is a father to 4 children. He's been the most wonderful, loving Dad to my three sons and, as you know, Glynis was born over a year ago. Another of his most important positions is Husband to Me! I don't know how I got so lucky. When we first married, he had lots of changes to make. After over 5 years of marriage now, he has accommodated all of my demands and more. Did I say demands? I meant needs. heehee

I love you Christopher!

I am convinced that a good husband is worth far more than silver or gold. Every day I am more in love and more grateful for mine! Thanks for "sharing" yours with us. He sounds like a great guy!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I love your blog. It is too cute!

I'm so sorry to hear of your husband having to retire medically. My husband is also a police officer and I know it would devastate him to lose a career he loves so much.

It sounds like he found a place for himself though! Great post!
