I love my husband for …the numerous meals he endured comprised solely of variations of mac and cheese(one of the few things I knew how to cook in the early years), the time I tossed hot biscuits in his lap(he had laughed at how they looked, admittedly they resembled snowballs with brown spikes), the simple rope swing he built just for me, the day I brought home an old wooden cable wheel and informed him it was our new TV stand and he did not look surprised, the many times he braved the frozen linoleum floors of our trailer to reignite our pilot light in the early morning, the way he always helped with the kids, time spent with the kids building forts, boating and teaching them how to ride a bike, taking us camping and exposing us to such sweet memories of campfires and adventure, the time I scratched the paint off our car while trying to scrape ice off the hood.
I love my husband for…. all the times he struggled to reconcile my illogical reasoning with is logical mind, how hard he works not only to provide for us, but also to honor God in all he does, his calm in the midst of my storms, his wisdom ….this list could go on, but I guess there is no need, I know I have tons of reasons to love him.
This anniversary we celebrate 26 years of marriage, not 26 years of perfection. We do not celebrate always being happy…instead we celebrate our lives together as a reminder of God’s grace to us. We celebrate 26 years of not always knowing what we were doing or where we are going and thanking our God for the journey!
I love you Scott for all you are and do, but especially for how you love me…you’re my favorite!
