Lessons From My Husband (1 of 5)

I have known Dirk Meadows since I was 15 years old, and have been married to him for 33 years. He is not only the father of our seven children, and Grandpa to our 6 grandchildren, he is my best friend!

He is the greatest husband on earth! I know many of you will disagree with me, but I can say this: He’s the greatest husband for me! He’s not perfect, but he’s perfect for me.

This week I will share with you some of the wisdom this man has passed on to me. As a pro-active father, he has objectively offered insight when I’ve been drowning in a sea of “I don’t know what to do”. Some of these things I’ve learned really well. Some of them, I’m still working on. They are all things that have radically changed my previous way of thinking. I hope you’ll be challenged and changed as well.

*Getting on their level
*Lighten up
*Consider the source
*Tighten the boundaries

I met him at a couple of the homeschool meetings, and I think he is an amazing man. I could tell that with only the couple times meeting him. I'm glad that you two are so perfect for one many in this world won't experience that. It is awesome that you two have faced life together as a team.

My wife and I are the same way...though we have only been married less than 2 years. We share the same values and outlook on everything...and we are best friends, too. We will face life together and hopefully be as successful with our children as you two were.

33 years. That's all I can remember from the post. It says a whole lot, Dirk and Robin. Thanks for the example.

Thanks for the comments, guys. Dirk is a great guy...and it's been a pleasure being married to him for so long.

Anna---he'll always be your "daddy honey".
