This is our 29th Valentine’s Day together. Kind of blows my mind when I think about us all these years later.
Valentine’s is just another day in our crazy lives, no reason to make a fuss or waste money on cards.
We know exactly what we mean to each other.
We are best friends underneath it all and we have helped each other through some really tough times.
We don’t always see eye to eye. That is an understatement.
I was recently asked how we have stayed together. I honestly don’t know.
There are times that we barely speak. We just coexist in the same household. Times that we can’t get on the same page about anything.
Then there are times when I think the sun sets and rises on his back. When I can’t breathe at the thought of doing life without him.
He is a great husband. He takes care of me, loves me, does numerous things without me asking or even realizing. I can totally take him for granted. I know if I need him, he’s there. That goes both ways.
We have grieved losing parents together, dealt with an autism diagnosis and all the emotions and difficulties that come with it. We share 4 children. The bond underneath it all is built on love and strength.
He is an amazing father. When I watch him with our children I fall in love with him all over again. He is so loving and patient with our daughter. All three of his girls adore him. He gives them safety, security and unconditional love.
He can lose his patience and we all drive him nuts but the way he loves his family makes me realize how lucky we are.
Underneath all the disagreeing, the bickering, the frustration is a man who loves with his whole heart and soul.
Just don’t ask him what’s for dinner
Happy Valentine’s Day Babe, all I want is a spot on the couch, to watch our show (and maybe a good snack)
