Today marks 25 years of being married to my best friend, Janice. I love many things about her, these are just a few.
I love her faith.
I love how she dreams…big. And I love how those dreams include me.
I love how she continues to love me when I can’t always fulfill those dreams…at least not yet
I love how she loves our kids, she is an amazing mother who gives so much.
I love how brave she is, she had open heart surgery a few years ago to repair a very large hole in heart. (the size of a quarter!)
I love riding bikes with her
I love how she’s willing to laugh at herself.
I love how she was willing to hold my hand when I quit my job to pursue a life long dream off painting. It was like walking off the rim of the Grand Canyon and she was willing to come with me. And, by the way, she continues to hold my hand.
I love how we witnessed the sunset on the Grand Canyon together for the first time.
I love how we stood atop Half Dome in Yosemite to celebrate her 40th Birthday.
I love her slighty deformed left hand fingers that makes her uniquely her.
I love her sexyness ( That’s right, I said it)
I love how she loves Jesus; with all her heart and brokeness.
I love the cute grin on her face when she sneaks a bowl of ice cream. It’s the same cute grin she has when she wants something from me.
I love how she’s willing to push past her fears and race downhill on her bike going over 40 miles an hour.
I love how she loves good wine, good food and even better friends.
I love how she supports me and my wild dreams.
I love how she can calm my soul when it most needs calming.
I love how much she likes chick flicks and likes them even more when I watch them with her. We’re watching one as I write this post, Notting Hill. I love that movie.
I love her loving patience, and kind heart.
I love how much she loves this wildly unpredictable life that God and has given us, even though it can be very hard.
Speaking of unpredictable. I love how she’s willing to go skydiving next week to celebrate our daughters 21st birthday.
Most of all I love how God brought her into my life 27 years ago and that she found it possible to love me as she does.
Happy Anniversary to my best friend, lover and love of my life.
