My Husband, as many of you know that my husband is a veteran. We spent several years in the military and having spent the last year RVing across the country. I’m proud to have my husband be a veteran, but there are several things that he does in our everyday lives that also makes me super proud of him. He’s the caretaker I’d like to feature during the 25 Days 25 Ways to Care Contest.
I’m so blessed that he spends time helping me in any way he can. Living in an RV isn’t always the easiest life, but it’s wonderful when you have someone to fall back on. At the end of a hard day or at the end of a good day, he’s there. I don’t always need a person there to say something and he knows that. He always knows what to say, when to say it, and when to listen.
He Carries the Burdens
Every family, every marriage, every life has burdens of some sort. I can always count on my husband to help carry those burdens. Moms have a lot on their plate most of the time, so it’s nice to know that I never have to carry any burden alone. I always have someone to pick me up when I’m down. That is hard to come across, but I’ve always found it in my husband.
He’s a Hard Worker
It’s nice being married to someone who is a hard worker. Someone that you don’t have to motivate and that just gets things done. It appears hard workers can be hard to come across these days, so I’m super excited that I snagged my hard worker many years ago. When you have four kids in a family, hard work is a must from both parents.
His Sense of Humor
Being a parent and traveling full time has its stressful moments. I feel blessed to have someone by my side that makes me laugh, a lot. Life wouldn’t be the same if you didn’t find humor in some situations. If you’re married to a guy who can make you laugh, you have it good.
These are just a few things that makes me love my husband more than the day I married him. Now that I stepped out to talk about my husband and the good he does in our lives; I encourage you to do the same with the 25 Days 25 Ways to Care Contest. This contest encourages everyone to share their caretaking experiences and nominate people who represent the values in 25 Days 25 Ways to Care.
You can’t nominate yourself for this contest you must find someone else. Can’t be that hard, right? I can name several people that I would want to nominate. Put your nomination together in a nomination for the 25 Days, 25 Ways to Care Contest.
Here are the details
Prizes: There are daily random drawings for one gift card per day over the 25 days. (sweepstakes). The gift cards will be awarded to the nominee in the video, not the submitter.

Share your Caretaker Story, who have you been inspired by?
I am a mom to 5 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
