I love my manly man!

As many of you know, I'm a great admirer of men. Specifically, Manly Men. Here's my man working hard to provide us with firewood to keep our house warm this winter.







Isn't he handsome?


One of the reasons I love men is I'm worried that so few of them are being raised nowadays. Folks like our neighbors (who have two sons) know the importance of fathers, especially when raising sons. (The mother calls her boys MIT's - Men in Training.)

Here is an excellent column by Dennis Prager, lamenting the lack of Good Men. He writes, "Every society has to answer a few basic questions in order to succeed and even in order to survive. One of them is: "How do we make good men?" The reason for the importance of this question is simple: Males untutored about how to control their natures will likely do much harm. Conversely, males who are taught to how to control themselves and to channel their drives in positive directions make the world a much better place. The good man is a glory of civilization; the bad man ruins it."

Well said.

  1. It is during moments like these that I take the time to appreciate my manly man. I wouldn't change him a bit. I like to know that he is doing everything that he can to take care of our family. I also try to never miss a chance to tell him how very much I appreciate him. You may have to look a bit harder but they are out there. Because they are, we are both truly blessed my friend. Now, go hug that man.
    Have a great day

  2. Glad to know I'm not the only woman ogling her husband (and snapping photos) while he's out doing chores. ;^D

  3. Hey! I have one of those too! They seem to grow best in a rural setting with plenty of home grown, home cooked food and raw milk. And guns make them happy.
