My Valentine

I am so lucky to be married to the greatest guy in the whole world...and I don't tell him that near enough. He is by far the best thing that has ever happened to me and here is a list of reasons why I love him so much:

  • a fantastic dad to Nora-he loves that little girl so much
  • he drives an OLD beat up truck that does not have heat or air and lets me drive a car that has both. And he NEVER complains.
  • he works hard everyday so that I can stay home with Nora and not have a full-time job
  • he makes me laugh...really laugh. He does things on purpose just to see me smile.
  • he knows when I am having a bad day and knows when to stay out of my way :)
  • he does the dishes
  • he is in charge of Nora's bath each night so I can have a few minutes to myself
  • he always tells me I'm beautiful, and he really, really means it...even when I know that I have looked better
  • he thought that I was beautiful even when I was 9 months pregnant, snoring at night, and tossing and turning so much that he couldn't sleep
  • he gets up with Nora sometimes at night
  • he loves us and would rather spend time with us than doing anything else
  • he loves God and truly wants to serve Him
  • he is concerned about being a better Christian and a better servant
  • he can build things
  • he is really smart (really! he knows all types of math things that I have never even heard of)
  • he takes care of Nora on Monday and Tuesday nights
  • when we have conversations on how we need to improve things in our marriage, he listens and starts improving
  • he loves me for me
  • he is gentle about correcting me or helping me improve myself
  • he makes me want to be a better wife
  • even though he doesn't really like "ER", he knows that I do and he watches it with me
  • when he folds clothes, he puts them in so many piles...it's cute
  • he is an athlete (there is a 50% chance that our kids will be athletic)

I could write way more than this, but then I would just be bragging. I am so thankful that God led us on a journey that ended up in marriage. Fourteen years ago, I never would have guessed that Matthew David Henderson would be my husband, I am so glad that God knew what I was too blind to see.

(Sorry - my last comment had too many typos!)

I was TRYING to say that you BOTH seem to be blessed... It takes a very special person to recognize and cherish so many of their spouse's attributes.
