A Mother’s Day Tribute To My Husband


When I was younger and bearing children, my husband would say to me nearly every day before leaving for work, “Make sure you lie down and get a good nap … I know you may have a lot to do but you need your nap.”

I do not remember when I transitioned into “not needing naps” but today I thought it would be a nice treat to get a little nap.  As I laid down on my hubby’s pillow, I enjoyed his scent that was left there.  That made me think back over the years.

When we were first married, I often enjoyed the luxury of laying in bed a little longer as my husband dressed for work.  I would watch him in wonder and awe.  He was such a beautiful, strong creation of YHWH and it amazed me that I was blessed to have him as my husband.  As the years have passed, his body has aged and put on some pounds here and there, but I admire and love it even more.  What a joy and blessing it is to “grow older together”.

How can this be a “Mother’s Day Tribute”, you may ask?  Well, as I was snuggling down to enjoy my nap and thinking of my precious husband, I realized I would not be the blessed mother I am today if it were not for Tom.

  • If Tom were not willing to give me children, we would not have these most priceless possessions in our home to enjoy.

  • If Tom was not willing to work hard to support our family, I would not be able to stay at home to enjoy raising our blessings.

  • He is my strength; when I struggle and feel I cannot do something, Tom directs me to my Heavenly Father Who meets every need.

  • Tom sees the good in people that I do not see and he encourages me to think the best.

  • ​I used to be afraid of elderly people but watching Tom be loving and compassionate to the aged, delivered me from my fear.

I could go on and on about Tom’s wonderful attributes but simply put: I would not be the blessed mother I am today if it weren’t for the awesome, YHWH-fearing, loving and compassionate husband with whom I have been blessed.​  To him I am grateful.

  1. Wow, I feel like I could be reading my own words. I know Jay has, and continues to encourage me in all those ways. How blessed we are to have husbands that make us better mothers. Thank you for the reminder to not take it for granted. That last picture of the whole family is just beautiful, by the way!

  2. I was so blessed by reading your words. My husband and I celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary last Friday.I do love him more now than the day I married him.We had three children (one is in heaven) that I know I wouldn’t have without him. I feel very blessed to be the mother of his children.

    Happy Mother’s Day to you!

  3. This is a beautiful tribute to your husband and a wonderful example, Annie. I was thinking this Mother’s Day how much my husband and my children have blessed me as well.

    May He continue to fill your cup to overflowing! Blessings to you and yours.

  4. Oh Annie, what a beautiful tribute to your husband. I was grinning from ear-to-ear as I read your words. Your family is simply precious and it’s a joy to see your godly testimony.

    I was richly blessed and I am so thankful you shared this with Roses of Inspiration. Have a lovely day!

  5. Your Tom sounds like my my Tom! So many similar blessings! We’ll be married 37 years in September. He is my earthly treasure, but our hearts reside in Heaven with our Lord and Savior.

    Thank you for sharing.

  6. This was so touching and sweet. God has been so good to us to give us Godly men who step up and are the leaders He has called them to be! So thankful for your sweet tribute. 🙂 God bless you and your family.

  7. What a wonderful tribute to a husband and father. Fathers often get over looked in the Mother’s Day excitement but they DO deserve praise. They are a blessing. Visiting from Raising Homemakers Link Up.

  8. I’ve never come across your blog before, but this post is lovely indeed. I feel the similar things regarding Hun. For me, Mother’s Day isn’t simply a ‘celebration’ of my being a mother, for without Hun with and beside me, I wouldn’t be a Mother. I’m grateful for Hun and his loving contributions to my life and for providing me the opportunity to be a mother! 🙂
