And I love him.
For his gift (and to redeem myself for posting those pictures above), I’m not gonna get mushy.
The fact is, though, he is out of town.
Yeah, on his birthday (un-changeable meetings).
So we had to do this on Sunday:See that “Jambox” thing? Another good Christmas gift idea here
He was a good sport about that picture.
Lu, not so much.
Our teenagers (ok, mostly Elle) begged to turn the birthday celebration into a Christmas decorating fest.
Dave was pretty good to put up with this after his foot and head massages:
Then we had the cake…
Which was pretty fun because we had some trick candles mixed in there with the other jumble of forty-two.
It’s gonna take a heck of a long time for those wishes to come true.
I hope they weren’t the ones that wished our remodel project would speed up …
…cause I really want that to happen.
I am so grateful for this man.
I am grateful for his structure.
(Even if it sometimes drives me crazy)
I am grateful for how our children look at him:
with all the adoration they can muster up.
I am grateful that he puts up with me
…and all my meandering thoughts and good intentions.
How he lassoes me in and helps me realize the difference between good, better and best.
He is so wise. Does he realize how wise?
I’m so grateful for how he sees the world.
And shows me his view through words that create a big picture.
And for how protective he is of our family.
Does he know my life would be hollow without him by my side and how lost I would be without him?
I’m so grateful for him: the captor of my heart.
(Whoops, just a little mushy.)
Love you Dave. Hope the meetings today are everything you dreamed they would be 🙂
