Utah had another storm last night so I'm listening to the radio to see if our school is one that is closed. It's not. They are doing a Valentine's call in for "where were you when you fell in love?" so I am continuing it here on the blogosphere.
I was at a party when I fell in love. I looked up and saw the most gorgeous man I had ever seen. And I swear I heard angels singing. I also heard someone else saying "This is my brother Bob". I knew without a doubt that I was going to be Mrs. Bob. I know the love at first sight thing is easily laughed at but I seriously was in love the minute I saw him. I have been falling steadily in love since that day in 1992. The way he says my name, the way he stands up for me, the way he knows my faults and loves me anyways. The gentle way he held each of our newborn babies. The way he gets excited for the little things. He is one of the few people in this life that I can truly count on to support me in anything. He makes me laugh and feel like a queen. I know with Bob around I am truly cherished. He is also the most amazing father I know. He is firm yet gentle, he puts the kids above himself and even his career at times. He is truly an amazing man. But, I am most truly in love with my husband because he "gets" me and he still likes me!! From the moment I met him I have always felt that it was destiny to meet him. We have made such a lovely life and children that I don't think we were meant to be apart. I am truly a better person because of my husband.
I know this is sappy but it's me. I am a romantic at heart. I love, love. And I am so glad that Bob and I are still in love through all the things that life has thrown at us and all the things to come, we are still together. I hope to sit next to him someday and enjoy our great grandkids. I can not imagine my life without his smile, his voice, or even his stubborn ways. He is my better half.
Happy Hump Day
