My husband, my heroPosted Tuesday, April 6, 2010, at 4:10 PM
So many of you have either called me or e-mailed me and have asked when my husband is going to be my hero. My husband, Collin, is my hero every day. Perhaps the poem below willlet you know how I feel about my wonderful husband. I wrote this poem many years ago and it is still true today.
My Collin is quite a unique man
And most people - well, he
They just don't quite understand.
He's a kind man, with eyes of blue
And to me, he's promised to always be true.
He writes me love notes
On the mirrow with my lipstick.
And then sometimes with me
A fight he will pick.
He works hard
And an honest man is he
So that he can make my life
As joyful as can be.
I love this giant of a man
With all my heart
And I must say
I have from the very start.
My problems with him I can share
When it seems no one else can really care.
My life without him so empty would be
So thank you, God
For giving him to me.
Let me say further that my husband is my biggest supporter and fan. No matter what endeavor I take on, and there have been many, he is always there to do whatever he can to help and support me. He loves Kathleen's Korner and e-mails it all over the United States.
Those of you who know him, know he has several health problems. But he still works harder than many people who have no health issues. I admire him very much for his care and concern about his clients and making sure their needs are taken care of even through his illness. I watch him work many nights until the wee hours of the morning taking care of his clients' problems and situations. He is so good at his work that most of his clients are his best friends. This says a lot about someone who deals with the public. Of course, we all know that none of us can please everyone. But, I must say he tries very hard and goes to great lengths to make certain their needs are met.
So yes, myhusband is not only my hero, but also my best friend, mentor and sweetheart. I not only love him, but I like him and more importantly, I respect him. My hat is off to him.
Remember, you could be my next hero.
Don't forget to blog with me on the Daily Statesman web site or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, thanks to all of you who are e-mailing and calling me or stopping me when you see me to let me know you are enjoying Kathleen's Korner.

Kathleen is a resident of Dexter. She was born in Indiana, but her parents moved their family back to the Dexter area when she was three. Other than three years she and her husband, Collin, lived in St. Charles, Mo. and ten years in Birmingham, Alabama, she has spent her life in Dexter. As you can tell, Kathleen is a people person and believes in giving credit to whom credit is due. Thus, the reason for her hero/heroine column every other week in Kathleen's Korner. As you can tell, she also like to have fun, most of the time at her own expense. Kathleen (Grubbs) is a 1964 graduate of Dexter High School and invites her friends to her "Korner."
