Mush alert: Do not read this if you are not into love filled sentiment.
I hear many people tell me that there are few good men left in the world. I beg to differ, because I am married to the best of them. For twelve years today I have been blessed to be married to my husband and the more years we spend together the more I come to realise that what we have is a precious gift which must be cherished.
Before we were married, 1999. (19 years old, we were married at 20)
When I reflect on our twelve years, it astounds me to see where we have been and it gives me much hope for the future. Here are the top twelve things I love about my husband:
When he looks at me in 'that' way, my heart still skips a beat.
When he smiles, you simply must join in and when he laughs you know that it is him (no one else has that laugh).
He makes me coffee every morning and delivers it with love.
He can massage like a professional. (But only me of course)
He is never afraid to show that he loves in in private or public.
He is the best father and works hard to keep our family.
He loves God and this just makes me love him more.
When his arms are wrapped around me, I know everything is just going to be OK.
He knows how to have fun and how to relax, and helps me to do both.
He loves to read and we can sit together and do so for hours on end.
He will offer to do something to help me, even when he has no idea how to do it.
He tells me he loves me many times a day.
I love you Don, may the next 12 years be filled and overflowing with what we already have and more. xx
32 years old and more in love than the day we married.
