A Salute to Husbands and Dads from the Retro Housewife

Something I think we often forget in today's feminist oriented world, is to really appreciate the guys; the fathers, husbands and friends that make it possible for us to be Retro Housewives in the first place! It's been a long time since the 1946 movie "It's a Wonderful Life" was made where we see George Bailey, played by Jimmy Stewart, find out what life would be like without him: George faced bumps in the road as a businessman and was in such despair that he was considering jumping off a bridge into some very cold water! An angel shows him his worth to the community, as a husband and father and human being. How refreshing!

So let's take some time each day to appreciate our boys! You don't have to build him a life-sized statue of himself, just send him off with a kiss in the morning, even if you are mad at him! You'll get something much better in return!

I am going to post things in this section that somehow acknowledges the importance of husbands and fathers! Stay tuned, let's see what I find!
