Barry has always been a very strong, confident and masculine man – even when he was just a boy. From the moment I started hanging out with him in high school, I remember feeling like nothing could get me when I was with him lol It didn’t matter where we were or who we were with, I felt as though nothing could touch me. In all honesty, that feeling of security when I was near him was one of the most appealing things about him to me initially. Over the next few years, I grew to realize that he would protect me at all costs… when that realization set in, that secure feeling continued whether he was with me or not because I knew if harm ever came my way, he would immediately come to my rescue. He was my knight in shining armor — I knew that he had my back.
There are very few things in this world that make me feel calm and worry-free — Barry has always been a happy medium for me… my moment of balance amid all of the pressures of life that pull me, make me fearful, and leave me unsettled. My husband makes me feel safe.
I love him for that.
What’s This Series About Anyway??
I believe that strong marriages rely on three key elements:
- Love – unconditional
- Communication – uninterrupted
- Affirmation – uninhibited
Everything else stems from how healthy the couple is in those three areas. Because of this, I’ve started communicating my love for my husband through weekly affirmations… those simple statements of truth that let him know I see all the ways he expresses his love for me. I’ve written a lot about what kind of wife I am and how I love and support my husband. This is the other side of that :)
