Ten Things I Love About You . . . . .

1 more day and it's Valentine's Day! I'm going to use each of the 10 days leading up to the lovey-dovey day to post something I Love about my Hard Working Husband (HWH). After being together 19 years, married 15 1/2 of those - I am more in love with him now than ever before!

10. I love riding in the car with you. Just riding. When we have no where to be and we're just exploring. I still remember the drive down to Myrtle Beach several years ago, with the windows down, music blaring, like we were 18 again. I love just hanging out with you!

9. I love how every morning at 6:15 (on weekdays) you roll over and put your arm around me. I look forward to it everyday. In your arms I feel safe, warm, relaxed, and loved. Those few minutes are the key to me having a good day!

8. I love the messages you write in the cards you give to me. They always make me cry, they are so sweet. Better than flowers or candy anyday!

7. I love watching you with the kids. You are such a good father. They adore you and covet your attention.

6. I love how you can do anything you set out to do, well. You have a fierce determination. You are unafraid to try new things. It makes me feel so secure and safe to know that whatever needs to be done, you'll be able to do it.

5. I love how smart you are. I guess this goes along with #6 and your great memory. But I am glad I have you to turn to if I need to find out the answer to a question. Especially a religious one.

4. I love how you put up with me. I know I am not always the easiest person to put up with. But you do. Thank you.

3. I love the little things you do for me. You know what they are, and they mean a lot to me.

2. I love your bum! Yeah, you read right - your bum, your hiney, your backside, your bottom! I'm not trying to get dirty here on my blog, but you know I do! It's perfect! It takes all the self control I have (which is very little) not to grab it every time I pass you. I'm so jealous!

1. I love my life with you. 20 years ago, I never thought I could have the life I have now. I never thought I could be this happy, I never thought I'd be as good a Mom and Wife as I think I am, I did not think all this was possible for someone like me. Then you came into my life, and with a little badgering, we dated, fell in love, married, had kids, and here we are. There have been many bumps and twists in our journey, but through it all you have LOVED me. I couldn't ask for anything better than that. I love you honey, always and forever, your babie.

This is a good idea and very sweet. I am sure your HWH really appreciates hearing how special he is to you.

Our husbands NEED to hear us respect them, honor and encourage them. This is needed by them and there are so many wives out there that talk nasty to their husbands!!

Your example is a great idea for all us gals! Whether on our blog, little notes or mailing a card to their work!!

Thanks for sharing!!
