My Funny Valentine, Sweet Comic Valentine...

As today is Valentine's Day I thought I would write a mushy post about how I have the most wonderful husband in the world on so many fronts.  Seriously!

First of all he fears and loves God and serves Him faithfully.  I am so very thankful for this fact and could not have asked for a better spiritual leader for a husband.  He has been a constant encouragement to me as well as source of conviction when there are changes that need to be made in my life.

Secondly he plays the cello.  And I like it. Alot :-)  Today he was playing "The Swan" from "Carnival of the Animals" by Saint-Saens.  This just happens to be one of my favorite pieces for cello and it made me sigh. He also tells bad jokes. I told him, "I think The Carnival of Animals is at my office (meaning our cd)" to which he responded "That's an interesting way to describe your co-workers"

Thirdly he's tolerating and even getting into the spirit of my coupon craziness.  Case in point, today he sent me a beautiful bouquet of flowers.  I was surprised and delighted and was the envy of my female co-workers.  When I told him this do you know what he said?  He told me that the reason he purchased the flowers from Pro-Flowers  was because he could get 900 Swagbucks for doing so.  That's the equivalent of a $10 Amazon gift card!  I love this guy!

Fourthly (is that even a word?)  he's always doing spur of the moment sweet things.  A week or so ago he brought home potted tulips for me to enjoy now and plant later and I LOVE tulips!  Today he fixed the lamp I recently bought with no prompting from me.  He always opens my car door and holds open doors for me.  

Fifthly he cuts a dashing figure in a suit!  Ok this one is a little shallow, but isn't a girl supposed to think her husband is handsome?  In short he is a gentleman of a kind that is nearing extinction in this day and age and I love him for it (while other girls dislike me for it).  I am so glad that God saw fit to bring us together almost 6 years ago.  It's been a wonderful ride and I'm greatly looking forward to God's plan for the rest of our lives!  


  1. Awww, how sweet...the only thing I'll argue with you on is that you have the most wonderful husband in the world. ;-) What's important is that YOU think so! Hehe...

    I love that he bought the flowers because of the Swagbucks. :-)

    Fourthly is a word, and I looked up all the way to tenthly in an online dictionary and they're all words. Sadly, eleventhly is not a word. LOL (Sorry for the silly rabbit trail!)

    Happy Valentines!

  2. @Tammy - I think you have a very valid point and I'm glad you mentioned it! And I am also sad that eleventhly is not a word because it's certainly a fun one to say!

    @Anne - Your point is not so valid from my perspective, but I'll allow it because sisters are supposed to feel that way about their brothers as a rule.
