Oh, My Hero!

Check out the hop here!


Hosted by Joy Campbell and Michelle Wallace, the Hero Hop is all about telling the world-

Who's My Hero?

I tell him all the time he’d be a hot, hot mess without me.

I assure him he wouldn’t know where to find his clean clothes, or know what kind of dressing to put on his salad if I was gone.

But the truth is, I’d be the one lost.

In real life- I can be a backward, awkward, neurotic coward. I’m the type who’s afraid to go into the basement after dark; loathes new situations and changes; and has walked out of a store more than once without working up the gumption to approach the stranger/clerk for help finding an item I needed.

 That’s me- a leave-a-night-light- blazing sort of gal.  

Yet, here I am chasing dreams…taking risks and chances knowing full well that I can fail. Or be made fun of. Or ripped apart in my next review. Scary stuff for a quiet coward.

But it’s all right. I do have a spine. He’s the guy I’ve always counted on to have my back. He believes in me when I don’t. He thinks I’m the best when I feel like I’m the worst. He’s the shoulders I stand on while I reach for stars.


He’s my husband and my hero. And I am a lucky girl. 

Chad and me.

  9. Well that just sort of gave me nice little chills all over. A stand-by-your-gal husband is a precious find.

  10. That's so sweet, Elizabeth. I'll bet he'll be chuffed when he reads this. It's good to have someone dependable who pushes us when we're weak. Many thanks for sharing with us!

  12. That's incredibly sweet, and your husband sounds like an awesome guy. My wife, too, is supportive of my writing dreams, which means a lot to me because so many people don't understand what we go through as writers.

    1. They are special people. I have writer friends who don't get the support and they almost always end up quitting or divorced. Having someone to support your dreams is priceless!

  13. So sweet Liz. I knew from the start it was your husband. You have shared him enough for us to know him well. Who doesn't want a living spine? *Grins*

    1. You know me too well!!! It is good to have a living spine. It gives me confidence to know that no matter how bad I screw up, I have someone who thinks I am awesome.

  14. Yay! I always love it when I read about happy, healthy marriages. There's nothing better than being with your bestie all the time, eh?

  17. Hi Elizabeth,

    Yes, it really is me. Remember me, Gary? Maybe you might remember Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar who is my hero for being a bonding force between my son and I.

    I love that the love of your life is your hero. This encourages me for the future. Thank you, dear Elizabeth.

    Gary :)

    1. It's GARY!!!! Of course I remember you, even without your internet super star side kick. I've missed you! And yes, you should be encouraged. I think you'd make a lucky lady a great hero.

  19. "He’s my husband and my hero. And I am a lucky girl."
    And he is a lucky man to be married to such a sweet and spirited "leave-a-night-light- blazing sort of gal." (I love that description)
    Well... that adds up to a perfect match!
    Thank you for participating in the Hero Blogfest!
