Happy (Late) Anniversary

I forget, sometimes, what a wonderful husband I have chosen.

I spent an hour on the phone with a friend tonight, discussing her reoccurring problems with her partner of 8 years. They have two children together, and she feels utterly trapped in a dying relationship. I had no practical advice to give, as I've never, and cannot ever, see my own relationship going through the same issues.

· He is kind and gentle
· He loves animals
· He is working on loving children, although I have no doubt he will be an incredible dad when he has his own to care for.
· He is intelligent, even when he uses most of his brainpower to recall obscure baseball statistics.
· He is considerate
· He is patient
· He is understanding
· He is strong
· He is cuddly
· He is sexy
· He is handsome
· He is brave
· He is my best friend

He is all of these things when I am not. He supports me when I need it, and gives me my space when I ask. He is amazingly good at anticipating just what I want, even when I don’t know myself what I am looking for.

We are certainly not rich. We have bills that we struggle to pay and jobs that we don’t love but can’t leave. Our families can drive us crazy. I can definitely be difficult to deal with. I worry about everything. I am not very consistent, in thoughts or actions at times. I am emotional and sappy. All of these things once overwhelmed me daily.

My husband creates balance in my life, and I love him for it.
