Anyone who has read my past blogs may be under the false impression that my wife and I tend to bicker with each other. I think all couples do, but let me set the record straight—I love Missy dearly and wouldn’t be half the father, writer or man I’ve become if it weren’t for her influence. Ok, so she rules with an iron fist, but I don’t think I’m breaking “Man Code” when I say a lot of husbands, myself included, need that sort of discipline in their lives.
Ask yourself, where would the male of the species be right now if it weren’t for the strong presence of our wives? I imagine towering pizza boxes stacked in the corner of every condo and apartment; home ownership would be nearly non-existent, no guy likes yard work! Televisions would only need two stations—ESPN and The History Channel. Cholesterol levels would skyrocket nationwide….and that’s just the beginning.
The best thing about being married to an amazing woman, however, is the simple fact that husbands never, ever, will have to go through that awkward moment of asking a girl out on a date. Ladies, yes, you may have thought it was cute when your spouse initially asked if you wanted to go to a Ravens game or share a bucket of popcorn at the discount matinee. I’ll bet you smiled when he shifted from foot to foot and stumbled over his words. Do you have any idea how much interior dialogue happened before that first approach?
As time went on it got easier. We learned more about you, like the fact that you really didn’t like old Clint Eastwood movies and there was a difference between the colors “Red” and “Iced Cranberry”. All of those months and years were very valuable to us. It was training for the future.
Right now you’re thinking, “John, what does any of this have to do with Horizon Goodwill?” I’m glad you asked!
