Who is Your Hero? Maytag Salutes Heroes Sweepstakes

I met my future husband in the 7th grade and he’s had my heart ever since.  Our kids love hearing stories of how he tried kicking the back of my chair and passing me notes to get my attention.  We were good friends for years before becoming a couple but he never gave up on pursuing me, and still does a great job of pursuing me today!

Though he has many wonderful qualities, his humble-hearted generous nature is what truly won me over – the core of who he is exemplified through the dedication with which he served his country, the way he’d give anyone the shirt off his back, or how he’ll gift a stranger in need a new tire just because he believes in a see a need, fill a need way of life.

Life hasn’t come easy for this man.  He’s never, not once had anything handed to him on a silver platter.  He has sacrificed and struggled more than many but his incredible work ethic, selflessness, and giving heart remain just the same.

He is a hero in my daily life because his example of selfless service inspires me every day.  He models this for our children as well and when I asked who they considered a hero, Daddy was at the top of the list!  This man is an amazing leader and provider for our family and it’s amazing to me to think how his shoes could never be filled nor his role replaced by anyone else.  He is a gift in our lives and a true everyday hero!

While we all hear about many heroic individuals in the news and social media, we don’t often hear much about the everyday heroes in our own towns who go unrecognized.  But not every super hero wears a cape  😉  Many heroes fly under the radar, doing what they do best – selflessly serving others without expectation of recognition.

This month, hhgregg has partnered with Maytag brand to honor those everyday heroes in our lives.
