"Well, this is one of the million reasons I love my husband. For some background, it was February of last year, shortly before we were married.

I'd had some health issues and been on crutches for a couple of months, trying different things at physical therapy, nothing worked. He's so compassionate, took me to PT.

He pushed me around a theme park in a wheelchair, and when I finally had surgery, he had someone cover for him to teach his son's Boy Scout troop, then brought me dinner and took care of me.

I always knew he loved me, but it wasn't until I could barely walk, and he went above and beyond all the time for that that I saw what true, compassionate love could look like. I didn't know men like him existed.

The week after my surgery was Valentine's Day. He knew I was still feeling pretty rough after my surgery, and just being up and at church that day was a lot for me. So he asked me to take a nap in his room, and I was asleep in seconds.

When I woke up, it was after dark. I smelled the most delicious, succulent steak dinner I'd ever had. The meal was all set complete with wine glasses, food, and he & his son had gotten me flowers. (He doesn't understand but knows I LOVE all the flowers.) We had a beautiful dinner together.

He constantly surprises me, and I don't get tired of bragging about him. We've been married since May and every day he shows me in new ways how much he cares for me. There's so much negativity about men in our culture and I never thought I'd get married, let alone to a man who puts me and his son first and loves us unconditionally. Chivalry is NOT dead.

From our first Valentine's Day as a couple when he hand-carved me a jewelry box, to now expecting our first baby and running to the store late at night for ice pops or holding my hair back when I'm sick, this man is the real deal. He knows that family is where it's at, and he treasures us so well. I only pray I am as much of a blessing to him. I'm going to spend the rest of my life trying to outdo him in showing love."
