I saw this post over at Alexandra Rose and I just had to participate. I don't talk a lot about my husband, but he deserves it. He is my best friend and my number one fan. And I haven't seen him in almost a month and I am kinda missin' him...
Now marriage is hard to begin with. Now add another race. How about another culture? Yep, tougher. Now add a third country that belongs to neither of us. hmmmm... Now add another language and tons and tons of rain. And then, just for good measure, throw in a 5 month old baby. Now that is tough.
This was mine and Lavar's first year of marriage. But we stuck it out and we are still hanging in there. I wanted to dedicate a post to him today. Because I miss him! And he never reads this blog, so I can be extra sappy. :)
This is my husband:
You are the most awesome man I know.
I know that you don't beleive in soul mates and that is fine. We will just stick with the 'no one else could handle you' theory.
You make me laugh like I never thought I could. I always have the time of my life when I am with you. I wish you would let other people see the funny side. They all think I am crazy when I say 'no really, he is funny!'
|ps. I was 15 weeks pregnant in the costume picture!|
We haven't had anything easy. Nothing handed to us. That is how we know it is real. We worked our butts off to stay in it. No turning back now!
But I have never felt more secure in your love. Thank you for never giving me a doubt.
You might not always say the words 'I love you' or 'You're beautiful' but I know you believe them. And because I know you, I don't need to hear them all the time.
Your theory: "I told you I loved you when I married you. I will let you know if it changes!"
(He is not that harsh, it is kinda a joke/kinda true!)
(Your son can give you a few pointers on the beautiful comments, FYI)
You are an excellent father. We didn't expect it when it came, and we had adjustments to make, but we did. And I know you would lay down your life for your boys.
You work you little pa-tootie off for us. Yes, you are living the dream, playing your favorite sport for a job, but I know it is hard work. And you still find energy to come home and be a 'family man.' Who woudda thunk, huh?
You clean up nice too...
No one said you were perfect, I married you eyes wide open. But you work every day to be a better man, a better husband, and a better father. I really couldn't ask for more!
And to top it all off, we created these little monsters.
Well done Simmonses! Well done!
And just because I can...
|They would both kill me, but neither of them read my blog. Their loss! LOL At at 80's party a few years back.|
