Happy Birthday Honey

In honor of my sweet husband's 46th birthday today,
I decided to list 46 of the many reasons that I love him.

1. He is a godly man who loves the Lord.

2. Instead of talking all of the time, he sits back and watches others in a group and as a result is very, very, very intuitive.

3. He NEVER gets angry- because he says that people are only usually angry because they are being selfish.

4. He is the handiest man ever and can fix absolutely anything.

5. He is a fabulous father and an incredible step-father to Maddie.

6. He loves his family with all of his heart.

7. He is the hardest worker ever! He gives it 100% in anything that he does.

8. He is always willing to lend a hand. If he notices someone broken down on the side of the road or a woman with a flat tire- regardless of where he is going- he will turn around and stop to help them.

9. He is thoughtful. Once when I sent him to the store for some feminine hygiene products (bless his heart)-he returned with them, some of my favorite cookies, and some flowers. What a sweetie!

10. He does not complain- EVER. Really.

11. He's romantic. Back when we were just friends and had not yet started dating, I had a Valentine's party for some of my single friends. I cooked a big Italian dinner and everyone came over for dinner. When T arrived he had a single long stem red rose for every single woman there- plus one for M who was only 3.

12. He's got a great sense of humor and is always playing tricks on me and on Maddie. He keeps us laughing.

13. He is a great gardener and our yard always looks fabulous!

14. He takes my car every week and washes and vacuums it out because he knows that I love a clean car!

15. He fell in love with me when I was fat and after I lost the weight he told me that he wanted me to know that although he complimented me more since I had gotten thin, he wanted me to know that it wasn't because he thought I was more beautiful thin, it was simply because I accepted compliments better.
He said he didn't care what size I was- he just loved me.

16. He brings me a Sonic Diet Coke when he knows I have had a really bad day.

17. He takes care of paying all the bills and makes sure that we are financially secure.
What a treat not to have to pay bills!

18. He pats my butt every morning while I am standing at the bathroom counter
getting ready as he walks by to get his socks.

19. He is tall, dark, and handsome!

20. He always, always, always holds my hand.

21. He is a true gentleman- always holding doors and pulling out chairs.
He wouldn't dream of sitting while waiting at a restaurant when a woman was standing!

22. He plays with my hair at night when I can't fall asleep (which is most nights).

23. He rubs my feet when they are killing me after a long day- even if he is tired and doesn't want to.

24. He loves my cooking and always brags on me in front of others.

25. He encourages me and believes in me 100% and is my biggest cheerleader!

26. He prays FOR and WITH me.

27. He has the most gorgeous blue eyes and a special look that's just for me! It makes me swoon!

28. Even though he had a horrible previous marriage and an unfaithful wife,
he trusts me and loves me with all of his heart.

29. He is faithful and loyal.

30. He will help me do anything I ask- even if he is busy with something else or would rather not.

31. He is a big guy- about 6 ft and STRONG as an ox!

32. Even though he is a big strong guys guy-
he loves to go to chic flicks with me! How lucky am I?

33. He is very wise.

34. He is quiet. (Of course, between me and Maddie- when would he get the chance to talk around here?)

35. He has an incredible singing voice and sings all the time.

36. He picks on me all the time. Even though I say it drives me crazy, I actually love it!

37. He loves to play games- all kinds!

38. He knows how to relax and has learned how to make me take the time to relax too.

39. He treats me like a princess and spoils me rotten!

40. He knows how to calm me down when I am upset and makes me feel safe.

41. He gives the best hugs EVER!

42. He sees the good in every situation and person that he knows.

43. He mops the floor because he knows it hurts my back.

44. He puts up with my crazy busy schedule and my insane perfectionist tendencies-
and loves me in spite of them!

45. He puts up with my Sonic drink and shampoo buying addictions.

46. He has a heart of gold!

I am truly blessed to have such a FABULOUS husband!
Happy Birthday Honey!
