My husband

Everyday I am aware of the gift I have in my husband. A gift for which I am so thankful. Here are some of the reasons why...
He is my best friend.
He is a man of integrity.
He spends time with Grant every night, playing cards, wrestling, reading, playing, talking.
After 13 years of marriage, he still makes me laugh.
His blue eyes sparkle when he is about to say something funny (or that he thinks is funny.)
His scrambled eggs are the best.
He says what he means and he means what he says.
He has a deep sense of justice.
He thinks carefully before making any decision.
He puts his dirty clothes away every day.
He makes me think when we have our deep conversations over a cup of coffee.
He likes adventure.
Telling him that something can't be done, is almost a guarantee that he'll find a way to do it.
He grew his beard back, just because I liked it.
He has a desire to study God's word, live by it, and share what he has learned with others.
He loves books and loves to read to learn.
He always clears his place at the table.
He seeks truth.
He's dependable.
He is a good communicator.
He is trustworthy.
He is a faithful friend.

I love that we are true partners in life and I can't think of anyone with whom I would rather share this journey.
Happy Birthday Todd!


  1. That is beautiful. There are blessings that are almost too wonderful to be topped in heaven. I agree, he is a wonderful man. Although I have not gotten to spend too much time around him, I hear over and over from others how he has impacted their lives!

    Happy Birthday!

  2. Wow. That was pretty incredibly beautiful. Tell Orlando, I mean, Todd, happy late birthday for me.

  3. I love your husband too. I mean, not really love love but you know what I mean! You are so perfect together! What a blessing!!
