Things I love about my husband.....

Sunday, November 30th is my Sweetheart’s birthday and I want to post this tribute in honor of him because he does so much for me that I am so thankful for. And I want to let the whole world know, what a terrific man he is. I sometimes feel inadequate and undeserving of his love, and I sometimes find it hard to believe that he is truly my husband. I want him to know that I know how blessed I am to have him in my life and that I love him so very much, with all my heart. (These aren’t in any particular order)

Sweetheart, I love you for……

Your Sensitivity. Whether it be my feelings, or a song you are listening too, or a movie you are watching. You can be so sensitive and tender hearted at times, and it really touches me that as a man you are not afraid to show this side of you.

Your Compassion. For always thinking of others and what you can do to help them to make their day better, or something they’re doing a little easier.

For the way you look at me. All I have to do is look into your eyes to know how much you love and adore me. It brings me so much comfort to know that you do and be able to see it in your eyes at all times.

For showing me how much you love me in everything you do and say every single day.

For being a true gentleman. For always holding the doors open for me as well as helping me in and out of the car. There aren’t many gentlemen in this world anymore. I am glad you are one of them as it shows how much you respect and honor me.

Being a fantastic cook. You are truly talented in the kitchen. I love ALL things you make for us.

For being a frugal spender, or as you put it a “cheap bastard”! I like that you are careful about money and always looking for good deals. I need a good lesson in this. I have never been good at it.

For your love of music. I love that we love the same genre of songs. But I really love that you like to listen to the sappy love songs and Delilah at night on 106.5. I also love that there is music playing in the house most of the time.

For your talent in playing the bagpipes. I never knew how much skill it takes to play them. I love listening to the music you play. I love how it makes you feel inside, because it takes you into your Scottish heritage.

For your empathic abilities. Because you feel so deeply when something might be wrong or if something might happen ahead of time. It also means I can’t ever hide my feelings from you…even though I try at times.

For being Mr. Romantic! You always have such good ideas to keep the romance alive in our marriage. I love the fact that you truly love being like that.

I love that you would rather spend personal, intimate, quality time with me than watch TV or do anything else. I love the way we can talk for hours and enjoy doing nothing but just being together.

For being a great Massage Therapist. You have great hands babe! Whenever I have muscle aches and pains… you know just what to do to make me feel better.

I love that you love to be active outdoors, whether it’s Paragliding, Hiking, Snowboarding, Bike Riding, Walking, etc. We have made some good memories doing these activities. I loved the Paragliding ride even though I was so afraid to do it. And I look forward to learning how to snowboard (I think) this winter. I also look forward to all the hikes we are planning to do next summer.

For loving my kids as much as you do your own. I am grateful to you for taking them under your wing and guiding them and caring about them as a father should. I am really glad that we can be a family.

For your wonderful and sometimes distorted sense of humor. You are a great comedian! I love the fact that you can always make me laugh. I love your mischievousness and the way you play around and tease. You like to have as much fun as I do. You bring so much joy and laughter into our household everyday. It makes life so much more enjoyable.

For loving to dance with me. I love that you will, out of the blue, ask me for a dance. I love the dances we have shared and look forward to many more.

For watching the chick flicks with me and liking them.

For standing up for the things you believe in. I love the fact that you are not afraid to speak your mind or stand up to someone, if you feel you are being wronged.

For your love of the Lord, your knowledge of Gospel Principles and the scriptures. I really admire that in you. For being a convert to the church, you have more of a testimony and knowledge in these things than I do, being a member all my life.

For praying with me daily. I love our personal prayers together and our family prayers. I am so glad I have someone who honors this principle and knows of its importance. I am greatly blessed to have a husband who honors his priesthood in our home.

For always holding my hand wherever we go or wherever we are, whether it be in the car or out on a walk. I love that you love this as much as I do.

I love your tenderness, all your Hugs, Kisses, and your touch. For being so loving and caring to me. For the intimacy you share with me.

I love your smile and the sparkle in your eyes. I also like the innocent look you get on your face when you are being mischievous.

You have a wonderful heart of gold. You are thoughtful, tender, kind and loving to everyone. I love how you treat my mom and grandma and the love you show to all my family. That really means a lot to me.

Happy Birthday Sweetheart! May you always know how special and dear to me you are. I Love You!
