I met my hard working man 10 months ago. Justin is a cabinet maker by day, and by night he is a jack of many trades. He starts his day at 5am, and before he does anything that morning, he tells me that he loves me.
When he gets home from working a long day, he gets right to work at home. He built me a whole new fence and landscaped the courtyard of my house. Whenever anything breaks and I mean anything, he can fix it. My washing machine, my electrical gadgets, my oven thingy mabob, anything. Along with being a hard working man, he is also a hard working dad.
He is a single dad to a four year old little girl. He is always there for her, and he is showing her early on how to be a good handy woman. She helps him when he’s building stuff, holding the tools for him, and cleaning up the garage as he goes. She often tells me with a power tool in hand, “I’m a good fixer, like my dad.” In addition to being physically hard working, he is mentally hard working as well.
He is always thinking of ways to be the best boyfriend I could ask for. He definitely goes above and beyond in this category. He tells me how much he appreciates me, and everything I do on a daily basis. He says as I’m leaving the garage, “Hey. I have to talk to you about something important.” As he pulls me close he asks, “Have I told you that I love you today?” I never feel unappreciated. He is very open, and we can tell each other anything. He is always working on his communication skills, and helping me to communicate and open up as well, since this isn’t my strong suit.
On Sunday when I am cleaning the house, he always helps me. Often doing a better job than I do. Sometimes when I come home from work, the kitchen is clean and he has BBQed something delicious for me. He is an expert BBQer. He takes such good care of me. I feel that it’s very hard to find someone that is hard working at work and at home and he does both perfectly. Everyday I am with him feels like I live in a romantic comedy, and he is my Ryan Gosling.
Justin works hard at every aspect of his life, which in turn puts a lot of pressure on him to be perfect. He is definitely perfect in my eyes. I couldn’t ask for a better hard working man!!!
