When we first met it was a baseball cap turned backwards for the catchers’ mask to fit. Then there came several different hats with various vendors vying for his sales. Then very clean golf hats to wear while taking customers out for a game of golf.
Then he became a builder and the hats he wore were any of the above mentioned, but they were now repurposed to block the sun, catch paint drips, and absorb all the sweat!
But none of these hats were supporting his true passion. Some of these hats he never wanted to wear in the first place – but had to in order to put food on the table for his family. As his wife, it’s important to pay very close attention to what it is that makes him tick. What relaxes, interests, calms, or simply makes him get excited, and then encourage the daylights out of him!!
It’s not always easy to make the transition from one hat to the next, but I’ve done it anyway and learned to do it cheerfully! By doing so, I’ve reaped the benefits of a happy husband!
He’s back to wearing a baseball cap turned backwards in order to catch that perfect shot, and I don’t mean a baseball – now it’s a photo! And I think he still looks pretty sexy doing so!
