A Tribute to the Husbands of IF

Now that I have systematically insulted all of my wonderful readers in my last post (thanks for coming back, by the way), I'm going to step around you and compliment your husbands. Like my last post, this one contains huge, sweeping generalizations, which I freely acknowledge. So if this doesn't apply, feel free to scoot elsewhere (but I hope you'll come back some other day). 

From what I have seen, there are a lot of Type A IF ladies (or, as the other Stephanie suggested, maybe it's just that those of us that are Type A are just more likely to seek out one another for comfort), and many of us struggle to find hope and optimism in the face of continued "Nos." But many of us are truly blessed with husbands who are patient and optimistic beyond reason (sometimes to the point of being downright annoying about it). I cannot help but think that these wonderful men are God's gift to us, for in His infinite wisdom, He knew how badly we would need them. To them, I offer this tribute:

As much as my husband drives me absolutely bonkers at times with his unending optimism and ridiculous rose colored glasses, there is no way I could make it through this without him. Thank you, God, for giving me him.


  1. "Optimistic beyond reason" - yep, that describes my husband to a T! =) I am grateful EVERY day that God blessed me with such a cheerful husband to balance my IF-related grumpiness...

    And for the record, I wasn't offended by your last post - just didn't get around to commenting.

  2. Haha. "The other Stephanie." I love it!

    It's so true. Almost all of us are sooo soo so blessed with awesome, rockstar husbands. I see many of us saying, "I couldn't do this without him." God took good care of us in the husband department.
