Hurricane Sandy & The Beauty of Strong, Protective Men
Hurricane Sandy was terrible, vicious and fearsome in its power. The storm blew relentlessly through the North East, devastating much in its path. Prayers go out for those who’ve lost lives, health, and property in the devastation. There is certainly some rebuilding to be done!
In the wake of the Hurricane, I wondered what I would have done without the presence and vigilance of my husband. I realized that I would certainly have been so much more afraid (and certainly more alone) had he not been there to take charge in ways that I could not. Watching him take charge of the situation made me so deeply grateful that he is mine, and I am his.
That realization made me wonder what qualities women see in the men they date, love and eventually marry, that assure them that they have a man who is a capable and reliable protector able to lead the family through literal and figurative storms. For me, during the course of our relationship, I watched my husband (who was then my boyfriend) come to my rescue emotionally, financially, physically and spiritually more than a few times. Seeing the strength, the grace, and the love with which he supported me convinced me thoroughly that I would not have anything to worry about in our marriage; I knew that he would be an incredible, irreplaceable support system.
So, you gorgeous Munaluchi readers, what qualities do you notice in men that assure you that they are bound to be great protectors in your marriage? What experiences have you had with your significant other that has convinced you that he is all the support you’ll ever need?
