for the love of a husband, Radames Perez

6 18 Rams for bloga
“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

Happy Father’s Day to a lovely husband
who when Two roads diverge in a wood, takes the one less traveled by
and it is the highest one

he feeds, walks, and medicates our dogs which I insisted
we get
he loves his children
he loves his sisters and their children
he loves my family
he gardens and reads Amazon Kindle books at night
Cicero, he says, had it right:
“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”

he is not an apologist
he is loved by most people
about his former spouse, he only reports that she is a gentle soul
and that her belief in him made all the difference
(girls…this is the kind of man you want to marry)

he holds hurtful people with grace and tenderness
“we are all broken,” he says

he demands little of life and people
and is so delighted at each of their offerings
“that was so sweet that they brought the fruit”

he lets me fight my own battles
but holds bad words about me to account
and asks that I too be gentle with the universe
“don’t paint things and people with broad stokes”

There is so much more…Happy Father’s Day Ram!

**for the love of a husband is a phrase associated with my blog on analytics. but I never wrote that phrase until now
