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!
